Claim the market value
It can happen to anyone: you and your car get involved in a car accident and your car is totaled. The calculation of the damage to the totaled vehicle often leads to a fierce debate. The Dutch Supreme Court provides clarity and has determined that in that case one can claim the market value of the car at the time of the loss. This follows from the Dutch legal principle that the disadvantaged party must as much as possible be restored to the position in which he would have been if the damage would not have arisen.
