Agreed. Good luck getting loss of value. The insurance company is there to repair the car (if possible), give you the value of the car at the time of the loss as a settlement if totaled, and take care of any property damage or injury. They typically aren't going to be concerned about any loss in value in your vehicle due to an accident.I think your after diminished value, which is a loss of value to the car even tho it's repaired? Depending on your states laws you may or may not be entitled to it. Illinois has no provision for it.
