Ever since the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal first emerged in 2015, we have been investigating allegations of emissions cheating made against a number of car manufacturers. BMW is one of the latest names to be added to our list, and is believed to be associated with the Volkswagen emissions scandal, as BMW is alleged to have colluded with Daimler and Volkswagen in order to restrict the emission controls in their diesel vehicles. Following fines and recalls in Germany, we believe that the allegations have enough weight for us to take on BMW emissions compensation claims.
Like other carmakers, BMW denies that they have done anything wrong and, at this stage, we are investigating allegations.
With our unique experience in emissions litigation, we are expanding claims to include a number of other manufacturers, including Ford, Vauxhall and Mitsubishi. We are determined to make sure that as many affected owners can access the compensation they might be entitled to, so you can register your details today to find out whether your vehicle may have been affected.
BMW and the emissions scandal
According to allegations that emerged in 2017, BMW may have colluded with Volkswagen and Daimler over the use of illegal emissions controls in diesel vehicles, potentially to avoid competing on the development of cleaner emissions technology. Despite denying the allegations of emissions fraud, BMW has since been the subject of investigations in Europe.
In 2019, BMW was reportedly fined £7.4 million by prosecutors in Germany for allegedly using the wrong engine management software in almost 8,000 vehicles. This issue over emissions regulations was understood by investigators to involve negligence rather than explicit deceit, we understand.
Making BMW emission compensation claims
We are still narrowing down our list of affected vehicles, but we can currently agree to take on BMW emissions compensation cases for diesel vehicles manufactured between 2007-2020. After taking on cases, we can then look to investigate the possible basis on which you may be eligible to bring your claim.
For example, where allegations are found to be true, we expect to be able to bring claims on the basis of a breach of contract and misrepresentation. If BMW has breached emissions regulations, they may have been misleading customers into believing that their vehicles were compliant, and they may have breached the contract in place if this is the case.
We can also look to apply the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations (CPUT) to BMW emissions compensation claims, if the allegations are true. This may enable us to recover up to 100% of the original price of vehicles in certain cases, meaning that some claimants could be in line to receive thousands or even tens of thousands of pounds in damages.

We were one of the first law firms to formally take claims forward, and we initiated High Court proceedings against Volkswagen in early 2016. Since then, Volkswagen has been found to have used technology amount to a defeat device, and we are now investigating other carmakers like BMW closely.
