Diminution of Value Damages
- Do you face claims of damages for diminution of value in addition to the
cost of repair?
Do you work in more than one jurisdiction?
Do you have a Kindle, I-Pad, Sony Reader, Barnes and Noble Nook or other
book reader or a computer that reads Adobe Acrobat?
If so, you probably need the new E-Book: Zalma on Diminution of Value
Damages. You will find explanations of how diminution in value is handled
across the country with cases (including the full text of many) from each of
the fifty states, Guam, the District of Columbia and all federal courts.
The introduction and table of contents is available at
Since 2001 when the Georgia Supreme Court decided State Farm Mutual
Automobile Insurance Co. v. Mabry, 274 Ga. 498, 556 S.E.2d 114 (Ga.
11/28/2001) I have written several articles concerning the right to recover
damages for diminution of value of property even after the damaged property
is repaired. The subject caused concern and confusion to the insurance
industry, every person insured with a policy of insurance that promised to
pay only the cost to repair or replace the property with material of like
kind and quality, appraisers, adjusters, and lawyers.
The book is a necessity for every person who is required to deal with
property damage as an adjuster, appraiser, investigator or lawyer.
