NOx is dangerous to both human health and to the environment, which is why we have vital legislation in place to limit it. Any vehicle manufacturer that is found to be cheating the testing regimes with technology such as defeat devices must be held to account, and owners deserve compensation.
And that is precisely what we do.
MAY 2020: DAIMLER (MERCEDES) ADBLUE EMISSIONS
Tens of thousands of UK Mercedes customers could be eligible for compensation as a result of potential non-compliance with UK emissions regulations.
Mercedes, like other car manufacturers, use AdBlue technology for some diesel models which is supposed to reduce harmful NOx emissions. However, it may be the case that Mercedes vehicles are still not complying with the law despite models advertised as being green and environmentally friendly. It is understood that there may also be so-called “defeat devices” used in these vehicles.
If it is established that Mercedes diesel models contain technology that can lead to vehicles emitting more dangerous NOx than they are supposed to, owners could be in line for thousands of pounds in compensation.
YOUR LAWYERS: THE CAR EMISSIONS LAWYERS
Your Lawyers Limited (t/a the Car Emissions Lawyers) is a specialist consumer action law firm fighting for justice for the victims affected by the numerous emissions scandals that have hit the motor industry in the last few years.
In October 2015, we were one of the first law firms in England and Wales to formally retain Claimants on a No Win, No Fee basis in what has since become the VW NOx Emissions Litigation in the High Court of Justice. We also believe that we were the first firm to commence High Court action in January 2016, and we were appointed to the Steering Committee leading the VW NOx Emissions Litigation in 2018.
We strongly believe in access to justice which is why we can offer No Win, No Fee arrangements for emissions compensation claims. Our philosophy is that it requires a united front to take on the biggest carmakers in the world, which is why we continue to work with lawyers in the UK, Europe and in the US.
When news of the VW emissions scandal broke, we believed that it was only a matter of time before more manufacturers were embroiled in emissions irregularities. Since 2015, several carmakers have been investigated, and a number of them have initiated recalls to apply "technical measures" and "software updates" to correct irregularities.
Emissions are regulated for good reasons. NOx and CO2 is damaging to human health and to our environment, which is why vehicle manufacturers have a duty to use the technology at their disposal to reduce dangerous emissions. Our aim is to hold the carmakers to account and ensure that anyone who has been misled or deceived is entitled to justice.
