Mercedes emissions settlements

If you have yet to do so, we always advise that starting an emissions claim as soon as possible is the best way to go, and we are here to help you now.

It is important to understand that every single case will be subject to legal time limits to claim. There are time limits as set out in the Limitations Act, and there are also court deadlines to make sure you do not miss in most cases like this as well.

Once these time limits have expired, it may be the case that you can no longer go ahead with the case without special permission from the court. This is not something that is commonly granted, so you must make sure that you do not miss out on the chance to claim.

experts claim nox emissions to blame for thousands of early deaths

Your Lawyers – The Car Emission Lawyers – are representing UK clients who have been affected emissions scandals, and you can sign-up for a Nissan and Renault emissions claim here now.

Many carmakers around the world are facing legal actions and penalty fines, with some already settled and issued, over emissions problems and irregularities. Two of the latest to be investigated here in the UK are Renault and Nissan, part of the Renault–Nissan–Mitsubishi Alliance. The South Korean government banned the sale of some models from several carmakers that included vehicles manufactured by the Alliance, and recalls have previously been initiated.

In the UK, we are potentially at the tip of the iceberg when it comes to these particular manufacturers. Owners can now sign-up for a Nissan and Renault emissions claims here.

Action over carmakers passing emissions tests through cheating

First published by Admin on November 10, 2020 in the following categories: Emissions News Group Action Mercedes Nissan Emissions Scandal NOx Renault Emissions Scandal and tagged with | | | | | | | | | | | | |

emissions tests

The European Commission currently has tight emissions tests and regulations in place for light–duty (cars, vans) and heavy-duty vehicles (lorries, buses), and for non-road mobile machinery.

Over the last few years, with the introduction of higher standards, the legal limit of NOx (Nitrogen Oxide) has reportedly decreased by almost 70% for diesel cars.

Unfortunately, to meet these tighter restrictions, some car manufacturers stand accused of using ‘defeat devices’. This can be a type of software that can allow vehicles to restrict performance and pass their emissions tests, but allow for far greater emissions levels when being used on the road. The scandals stemmed from the original VW “dieselgate” issues that came to light in 2015 that has resulted in the High Court making a finding that the technology they used is a defeat device.

Nissan and Renault Vehicles – advice for compensation claims

First published by Contributor on November 03, 2020 in the following categories: Emissions News Nissan Emissions Scandal NOx Renault Emissions Scandal and tagged with | | | | |

Nissan and Renault emissions

Nissan and Renault vehicles are being pursued over a potential emissions scandal, and it is thought that over 1.4 million vehicles could be affected in the UK alone.

Emissions matters are very serious. If a carmaker has been found to be cheating the law, this can mean that manufacturers are allowing the release of unlawful amounts of NOx emissions into the environment. The European emissions regulations impose strict restrictions on car models as to how much pollution can be emitted in order to prevent extreme amounts of toxic gases being released into our atmosphere.

Studies show that the production of NOx can be harmful to both the environment and to the general public, and it can be responsible for tens of thousands of premature deaths each year. This is why emissions regulations are vital, especially in highly populated areas. Nissan and Renault deny that they have done anything wrong but, if they are found to have been cheating emissions testing, we will hold them to account.

No Win, No Fee Mercedes claim

We are pursuing a No Win, No Fee Mercedes compensation action for anyone who may own or lease, or used to own or lease, an affected vehicle.

Daimler is accused of using technology that amounts to a defeat device to allow vehicles to pass emissions testing but pollute far more dangerous NOx than they should. We are confident enough that there is enough evidence and information to pursue the action, which is why we have launched legal cases.

We are working on a No Win, No Fee basis. Here is how this works.

AdBlue and NOx emissions

First published by Admin on October 20, 2020 in the following categories: Emissions News Group Action NOx and tagged with | | | | |

AdBlue and NOx emissions

AdBlue and NOx emissions go hand-hand, as some car manufacturers use AdBlue in their engines to reduce the production of Nitrogen Oxide (NOx); a toxic gas produced from diesel engines.

Many vehicle manufacturers claim that the use of AdBlue can reduce car emissions to provide for cleaner diesel vehicles, and some of those carmakers have relied on those statements when selling their models.

However, the reality may not be so green. A number of carmakers stand accused of using defeat devices in their vehicles. These can, in some cases, recognise when an emissions test is taking place, and allow for emissions-reducing technology to be engaged. Out on the road, emissions-reducing technology may not work. For some of those taking part in the emissions legal actions we are pursuing, they have reported having to top up AdBlue more often, increasing the running costs of their vehicle.

Can ‘Software Updates’ and Recalls affect vehicle performance?

affect vehicle performance

Can software updates affect vehicle performance? If so, what can you do about it, and how can we help as expert Car Emissions Lawyers?

Several car manufacturers, including VW, Mercedes and Nissan and Renault, are alleged to be involved in emissions scandals. Allegations are that engines can produce far more NOx emissions than allowed by European regulations as a result of the testing regimes being cheated.

To pass the emissions tests put in place, manufacturers stand accused of using ‘defeat devices’ that can do things such as detect when the cars were being tested, which can alter whether the emissions controls are engaged or not. This can mean that, on the road, the actual emissions could be far higher.

Emissions Regulations are Important

First published by Contributor on October 06, 2020 in the following categories: Emissions News NOx and tagged with | | | | | | |

emissions regulations

Emissions regulations are in place worldwide to restrict the release of extreme amounts of harmful gases that could damage our planet and our health.

Such gases include Nitrogen Oxide (NOx), which is a common pollutant from diesel engines. Car manufacturers must limit the amount of NOx their vehicles emit in order to comply with European regulations that are in place to protect us.

Unfortunately, some manufacturers have used software – also known as ‘defeat devices’ – in their diesel vehicles to dupe the emissions testing system. The devices used by Volkswagen in the original “dieselgate” scandal could detect when the vehicle was being tested and restrict emissions during  testing. However, in usual driving conditions, the vehicles could pollute far more.

Now, other carmakers including Mercedes, Nissan and Renault stand accused of similar behaviour. They deny any wrongdoing at all, but we are investigating any allegations accordingly.
