On this week's episode of The Legal Difference, attorney Wes Gralapp continues his discussion on estimates and repairs after an accident. Wes starts with license plates, and reminds viewers to turn it in to the Motor Vehicle Department if your car is totaled. If your vehicle is totaled but you want to keep it, you can be compensated for the salvage value, which is the amount a junkyard would pay for the parts. Once the vehicle is repaired and roadworthy, you can obtain a salvage title to drive it legally. The new title must be notarized properly to ensure it is a legal document. Our firm performs notary services, and we are happy to do so for the public. Wes also discusses the different types of paperwork involved in a salvage vehicle, such as power of attorney and Property Damage Only releases, both of which our firm can assist with for our clients.
