Car wrecks…ugh.

Talk about a way to just completely upend like an entire half of your year.

If you’re lucky you’ve walked away from a minor one, no bodily injury to you or the other car’s passengers.

Because you’re going to then have to deal with insurance.

One guy on TikTok named Trevor was in a wreck, but he had some wisdom to impart.

He explains his wreck, and what went on with his insurance.

Nice setup.

“So when I got into a wreck, it was my fault, but my insurance still paid for it because I have full coverage.”

But it’s when his car got fixed that he learned something very interesting.

He explains that his 2016 Dodge Charger was worth $22k before the wreck.

And it’s now worth around $15k.

The guy told him, “Don’t forget to call your insurance and ask for a depreciation value.”

He goes on to explain that if you have full coverage, and your car loses value because of the wreck,

“You can call your insurance and get a check for the amount of value that was lost in the wreck!”
