Another huge settlement: emissions cheating claims

News of another settlement in relation to emissions cheating claims has reached us from the shores of the US, this time to the tune of $3.5m in Ohio.

The claims settlement is reported to be for the 2015 “dieselgate” scandal that VW has found itself at the centre of, and this latest settlement is yet another in a long like that have taken place so far.

While this latest development has taken place in a separate legal jurisdiction to here, any news of another settlement is always welcome to us as we continue to fight to uphold the rights of anyone who has been wronged as a result of vehicle emissions problems.

Does this impact on the UK cases?

The settlement of emissions cheating claims in the US does not directly impact on those pursuing damages cases here in the UK. The US has a separate legal jurisdiction, so we cannot directly rely on it here to push settlement ahead here in England and Wales where we operate.

That being said, a lot of the rules and regulations in place can be similar, and any news of another settlement is always a positive one in our view. It shows that allegations being made against carmakers have some merit to them, and what we then need to do is apply the law here to show that the law has been broken, if it has. If we can prove this, that is when consumers affected by any proven cheating scandal could be entitled to recover compensation.

An important factor is that we are confident that we can succeed with the legal cases that we are launching. In fact, we are so confident, we are representing eligible claimants on a No Win, No Fee basis. You can read more about how this works here.

Information about emissions cheating claims for compensation

Anyone who owns or leases, or used to own or lease, an affected vehicle from any of the array of vehicle manufacturers that we are now pursuing could be entitled to join our emissions cheating claims action.

You can check if the carmaker applicable to you is one that we are pursuing by checking the claims form here now on our dedicated website.

Ultimately, if certain allegations made against carmakers are proven, consumers could be entitled to receive damages. Remember, the High Court determined that the software code hidden deep within the affected VW vehicles amounted to an unlawful “defeat device”.  When VW tried to appeal the decision, the Judge described their arguments as “completely irrelevant”, “hopeless” and “highly flawed”, evidencing that the carmaker’s defence would not wash with the Court. Whilst different carmakers may be guilty of committing different acts, if this has taken place, it is clear to us that there is nowhere to hide. Any manufacturer that has broken the law can be caught!
