Defend Diminution

With years of experience in diminution, we know exactly where the pitfalls of diminution claims are. Based on our expertise and experience we have developed our Diminution Defence Service.

What is defend diminution?

We can help defend diminution claims. We know that not every vehicle involved in a road traffic accident leads to a valid claim for diminution. Each case is down to its own merits. Unfortunately not all accept this and this is where we can help in defending your liability for any such claim.

We provide a bespoke Diminution Defence Service* that allows insurance and self-insured clients to:


Is a diminution claim valid and proven


Formulate a case plan to defend a diminution claim where no valid claim is presented


Negotiate a settlement if a valid diminution claim is made.


Advise on the Civil Procedure Rules and their direct application to a diminution case


Handle all aspects of a diminution claim both pre and post issue.

Specialist Arguments

Blanket defending a diminution claim, usually on bad law, is the worst approach an insurance company can take when considering a claim for diminution. Working with Clifford James Consultants will allow you to formulate the best method of handling diminution cases.


Not only can we assist an insurance company in defending a diminution claim, we can also provide a consultancy service that can be used to develop processes to ensure that invalid diminution cases are rejected, but valid claims are resolved efficiently and on reasonable terms.

Cutting Edge

Being at the cutting edge of this fast developing and niche area of law, we are up to date with the law of diminution and the tactics deployed.
