The Volkswagen Emissions High Court Group Action
"The deadline for joining the U.K. Class Action has been set for October 2018"
THE COURT ACTION CUT-OFF DATE HAS EXPIRED
TENS OF THOUSANDS HAVE REGISTERED COMPENSATION CLAIMS IN THE VOLKSWAGEN COURT ACTION
MISSED THE DEADLINE BUT STILL WANT TO CLAIM?
The Deadline To Join The Court Action Has Expired
The deadline to join the Court action expired at the end of October. Tens of thousands of victims of the Volkswagen Emissions "Dieselgate" scandal registered their claims in time for the action. Anyone who did NOT register in the action before the deadline may have to take alternative action to claim compensation.
Although the deadline has expired, claims are still being taken forward on a No Win, No Fee basis. Volkswagen is refusing to compensate victims in the UK, despite admitting responsibility for the diesel crisis earlier this year. This means we may have a lengthy court battle on our hands. Although the deadline for joining the GLO has expired, you still may be able to bring a claim against Volkswagen.
Judges can be strict about allowing Claimant's to join an action too late. We know from experience that people who miss the deadlines have lost the opportunity to claim tens of thousands of pounds.
The Volkswagen Emissions High Court Group Action
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 in October 2015, and the first law firm to launch cases against Volkswagen in the High Court of Justice in January 2016.
Your Lawyers has been working with lawyers in America and across Europe, and secured funding and top-rated insurance to protect our Claimant Group.
Our team has been fighting for justice since the breaking of the VW Emissions Scandal. The court action is underway where a Group Litigation Order (GLO) has been established. 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.
Will the Court Action win?
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 that the action can succeed.
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:
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 position with partners around the world.
We have engaged with other Claimant groups in the U.K. and have been appointed to the Steering Committee who are leading the action.
