diminished value

Last night a buddy of mine backed into my car. [:(][:(][:(] Has about $3k worth of damage (driver side front door replace, dent to rear door and driver side front fender, and bottom trim piece needs replacement). Luckily, he's insured and nobody was hurt. My question is, does any one have any experience with diminshed value claims? I know it is available in Oregon, but how hard is it to get? Also, the car has only 56k miles on it. Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

RE: diminished value

Try posting a message on the Edmunds.com Forum for "Real World Values" It is moderated by several car dealer professionals who can give you a very good idea of the before and after value.
