Another Volkswagen settlement in the US as UK remains ignored

Posted by Admin on May 16, 2018 in the following categories: Emissions News and tagged with |

There has been another Volkswagen settlement in the US as the UK remains ignored. In this latest settlement, VW are set to be paying $33.5 million to the US State of Maryland as a result of the “Dieselgate” emissions scandal.

News of this latest settlement that follows a long line of settlements totalling around $15 billion in the US will serve only to anger the ignored UK consumers who are being completely refused compensation.

This is why the legal action we’re co-steering is important.

In England and Wales, Volkswagen is refusing to pay compensation to owners because they say that they have not done anything wrong over here. We say that VW doesn’t have a leg to stand on in terms of a viable defence, and the fact that they’re willing to pay compensation quickly in the US but ignore UK victims of the scandal has likely come down to government pressure. In the US, the government is hot on making sure that companies guilty of illegal behaviour are dealt with swiftly and efficiently, whereas over here, we lawyers are often left to sort it ourselves.

Unfortunately, the UK legal system isn’t anywhere near as fast as it is in the US, but we’re pressing ahead and we’re confident we can win the action.

Is there hope for UK drivers to win compensation against Volkswagens?

Absolutely. Just because VW is refusing to pay compensation right now doesn’t mean that we won’t win the legal battle.

We’re acting for over ten thousands victims of the scandal, and as the first law firm to formally retain clients and initiate High Court proceedings, we have a great deal invested in this action because we believe in the cause and we believe we can win the fight.

That being said, time to join the action is running out.

Legal deadlines that are set to fall in the next few months means there is a formal cut-off point for joining the action. If you have yet to join our Claimant Group, please get in touch as soon as you can.
