Meredith GMC, Inc. v. Garner

In Meredith GMC, Inc. v. Garner, 78 Wyo. 396 P.2d 371 (1958), the Court discussed the issue of how damages to a motor vehicle which is not totally destroyed are to be calculated. Surveying Wyoming precedent and various scholarly works, we concluded that damages could be calculated by using either the cost-of-repairs method or the decrease-in-market-value method. The Court indicated that the choice between these two methods should be determined "as the occasion may require." Id., 328 P.2d at 374.
