The Volkswagen Emissions High Court Group Action
"The deadline for joining the U.K. Class Action has been set for October 2018"
BREAKING: VW ADMITS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE DIESEL CRISIS
Your Lawyers' Director and VW Group Action Steering Committee Solicitor, Aman Johal, said:
"Volkswagen's main defence to the claim for compensation against it has now been removed as a result of their admissions in Germany. The questions that the courts in England and Wales should now address are in respect of how much compensation Volkswagen should pay to affected owners, and not whether they should pay affected owners."
DEADLINE TO JOIN HAS BEEN SET - THE TIME TO CLAIM IS NOW
Your Lawyers Limited (t/a the Car Emissions Lawyers) is a specialist consumer action law firm that pioneered the first High Court action against Volkswagen in England and Wales after news broke about the "Dieselgate" emissions scandal.
Your Lawyers was the first law firm in England to represent Claimants against Volkswagen on a No Win, No Fee basis, and the first law firm to launch cases against Volkswagen in the High Court of Justice.
Our team has been fighting for justice since the breaking of the VW Emissions Scandal. Some 1.2 million owners of affected vehicles in the UK have yet to receive any compensation, so consumers who have yet to start their claim should join the group now and start a case as soon as possible to avoid missing the October deadline.
A GLO is an order of the court which permits a number of claims with common or related issues (of fact or law) to be managed collectively, and the hearing that was set to be the springboard of the Volkswagen Emissions Group Litigation Order took place in March 2018.
The cut-off date for joining the action is October 2018, but the cut-off for joining Claimant Groups will expire before the October 2018 deadline.
WE ARE WORKING WITH LEADING LAWYERS IN AMERICA AND ACROSS EUROPE. OUR CLAIMANT GROUP IS FULLY-FUNDED WITH THE BENEFIT OF TOP-RATED INSURANCE TO PROTECT AGAINST COSTS IF THE ACTION DOES NOT SUCCEED.
The Your Lawyers VW Group Action - The first to take action in England and Wales!
When news broke about the Volkswagen Dieselgate scandal, a number of law firms in England registered owners' information but did not take cases forward. Unlike other firms, Your Lawyers formally accepted cases in October 2015 and pioneered the first High Court action against Volkswagen in England and Wales in January 2016.
Tens of thousands of owners have approached Your Lawyers for help, and we now act for thousands and thousands of individuals affected by the Volkswagen Emissions scandal. The High Court has recommended that Your Lawyers be appointed to the Steering Committee who lead the action in the High Court of Justice. Your Lawyers will continue to be at the centre of the action, leading the fight for justice.
For those who are eligible, Claimants may be able to recover damages for up to 100% of the value of vehicles with our representation.
Your Lawyers' Successes So Far
Your Lawyers has attended a number of High Court hearings in relation to the VW Emissions Scandal and worked tirelessly to progress our action. Here's the history so far:
Volkswagen is refusing to compensate Claimants in the U.K., so we are having to pursue them through the High Court of Justice. If Volkswagen had done the honourable thing and owned up to their wrongdoing, we would have seen a quick and efficient conclusion to the case. Instead, they have instructed a leading law firm to defend them in the action, and we expect that it could take some time for cases to be resolved.
Having represented victims in a number of other GLO actions, we know from experience it can take a number of years so win the case.
We remain confident we can succeed.
The Your Lawyers Approach
From the very beginning when the news broke about Volkswagen's deception, we emphasised the importance of working with other lawyers in the U.K. and across the world in a unified approach. VW is one of the biggest corporations in the world, and it takes the combined expertise of law firms to fight them through the courts.
Whilst it is unfortunate that one law firm (Harcus Sinclair) had to be debarred by the High Court through failing to properly cooperate, we have established ourselves, as the first law firm in England to launch High Court proceedings, in a strong positon with partners around the world.
We have engaged with other Claimant groups in the U.K. and are set to be appointed to the Steering Committee. As a specialist consumer action law firm, being at the heart of this litigation and paving the way for justice is our absolute priority as we fight for the rights of those who have been wronged by Volkswagen. We have led the fight from the very start, and we will continue to do so until the end.
Sign up to the Action NOW - Court Deadlines Approaching
Anyone who wants to pursue a claim should sign-up immediately. Some court deadlines have already passed, but the major one where a cut-off for people joining the action is set as October 2018, but the books for new clients will have to close in advance of this deadline.
If you miss the deadline, you risk being unable to claim in the action.
Judges can be strict about Claimants who miss deadlines. When we worked in the PIP Breast Implant action, another law firm missed the deadline and their clients were not allowed to join late.
Even this year we still receive enquiries from victims who missed the deadline in 2013, and we are unable to help them. With some PIP Breast Implant claims settling for almost £30,000.00, missing a group action court deadline could be very costly indeed.
