I am currently serving the two cars that was involved in the collision that struck my van as I want my van restored to the condition it was in before the collision.. Its bad enough that my van was struck while I had nothing to do with the accident, but as I mentioned before, their adjuster came out and totaled my van and put the wrong mileage on his report.(100,000 more miles). I am suing for $5,000. Is there a case law that can help me in court? I would think that my van is worth between $3,000 and $4,000. I only have liability insurance. What can I do? The adjuster listed repairs at a cost of $2,900. But as I said he put the wrong mileage and lowered the value of my van.
Please give me the on-line free research site and I thank you for your help.
