The damages are $3,200, and the Plaintiff has bought an older vehicle he then put a lot of "value" in it, with rebuilt transmission, new engine parts, etc. Is any of this investment considered, or is the value the Court would go by limited to solely some published book value, which in this case would be about half of the $3,200? Also, isn't the cost to sue recoverable (fees)?
One last point, the suit came about because reckless driving was alleged from road rage, not a simple accident.
