Yes, Utah law recognizes diminished value damages. That means if you have been in a Utah accident, you can recover damages for the diminished value of your car. Under Utah law, you are entitled to get the difference between the value of your car before an accident and the value of your car after. You are entitled to diminished value damages even if your car was repaired following the accident.

These types of claims are called diminished value or diminution in value claims. If you have ever tried to sell a car after an accident, you know from first-hand experience that you can’t get its full value because it has been in an accident.
