Several years ago a painter spilled stain on one of a matched pair of
sofas.  His insurance company (a large well known company...) offered to
pay for the repair of one sofa, but not to exceed its depreciated value.
I would have to eat the cost of reupholstering the second sofa to match
the first.  

Obviously this was totally unacceptable to me, I hired an attorney and the
insurance company quickly settled for the cost to reupholster both sofas
plus the attorney's (not insignificant) fee.
