Can you claim up to £96,000 in damages?
You could be entitled to receive between £23,775.00 and £96,220.00 in compensation, depending on the model of your vehicle, according to recent ‘on the road’ price data from Mercedes in May 2020.
The use of important legislation known as Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (CPUT) for Mercedes emissions scandal compensation cases could mean owners receiving up to 100% of the purchase price of their vehicle. Looking at the price data above, we have an estimated range that could go up to around £96,000.00 if the Court is to establish that there is a breach of CPUT that is very serious. If it is established that Daimler has made us of illegal defeat device technology in vehicles, the rules can mean that owners could receive 25%, 50%, 75% or the full 100% of the cost of the vehicle back.
Commenting on the importance of this in the media, Aman Johal, director of Your Lawyers (The Car Emissions Lawyers), said:
“Our evidence shows that consumers who own or previously owned a Mercedes vehicle affected by the Dieselgate scandal could claim compensation pay-outs of up to £96,000.
We urge Mercedes owners to come forward as soon as possible to claim compensation owed to them before it’s too late. Half a million drivers across the UK could be eligible to claim, and carmakers must be held to account where vehicles are found to be producing more dangerous levels of emissions that could lead to a greater number of deaths and cause irreparable damage to the environment.
If Mercedes is found to have used defeat devices to cheat emissions regulations, owners deserve to be compensated, especially where residual values have been affected. Much like the Volkswagen case from 2015, we may be looking at another example of a big corporation putting profits before people.”
