Stolen car, now what? If your vehicle is stolen, you should call the police immediately and then notify your insurer, your lender and your state’s DMV. Almost 900,000 vehicles were reported stolen across the U.S. last year according to the National Insurance Crime Bureau (NICB), an insurance industry association. Lots of questions! What happens when your car is stolen then found? Who will pay for the damages that happened when the car was not in your custody?
The two secrets the auto insurance industry doesn't want you to know are "Appraisal Clause" and "Diminished Value." Almost every auto insurance policy has an Appraisal Clause, giving the policyholder, in the event their vehicle is declared a total loss, the right to an independent appraisal of the prior-to-loss fair market value. Diminished Value is the sudden loss of value because of an accident. If you were not at-fault in the accident, you can make a Diminished Value claim against the at-fault driver's insurance company. Call/text 786-853-0711 with any questions.

Because of its relative vulnerability and fragility, a motorcycle that has been in an accident has a high probability that it will be 'totaled', or declared a total loss, rather than being repaired.

Call/text 786-853-0711 for information.
