Personal Injury and Property Damages: How much is your car worth?

One of the unfortunate consequences of any serious car wreck is the possibility that your vehicle will be declared a total loss. In these instances Virginia law requires that the responsible insurance carrier compensate you for the retail value of your vehicle just before the car accident.  You are not entitled to the replacement cost of the vehicle.

To calculate the retail value, you can calculate this value for yourself by going to or using to make sure that you are not getting shorted by the insurance company. Remember, Virginia law requires that they use the retail value of your vehicle, not the trade-in value!
