We have been accepting Mercedes emissions compensation claims for some time now, but if you’ve yet to start a case, here’s how we can help you.
When the Volkswagen emissions scandal broke in 2015, we felt there would be other manufacturers that would also need investigating. Since then, several carmakers have been involved in legal actions and have faced criminal investigations around the world. Whilst many continue to defend themselves and state that they have done nothing wrong, we believe that there’s justification for further action.
In 2015, the Car Emissions Lawyers (that’s us) were one of the first – if not the first – to formally accept VW cases on No Win, No Fee agreements. We were also the first to pioneer High Court action in January 2016, and we were appointed to the Steering Committee for the VW action in 2018. In 2020, we’re taking new cases forward as part of the Mercedes emissions compensation action.

The VW claim deadline is now just 8 weeks away. Anyone who has not signed-up so far and entered into a Litigation Management Agreement will be pressed for time to actively join.
As another reminder, the VW claim deadline we’re talking about that’s now just 8 weeks away is not the deadline that we will stop taking cases on. This deadline is the Court deadline which will be the final cut-off point for new Claimants to join the Group Litigation Order (GLO) – AKA Class Action – established earlier this year.
You must have signed-up and have access to our funding and insurance in advance of the deadline, or you risk missing out. It’s as simple as that.
Will the new so-called “impossible-to-cheat” emissions tests work? Or, will automotive manufactures find a way to cheat the new tests (again)?
The Volkswagen Emissions Scandal brought to light the stark realisation that car manufactures are capable of – and happy to – cheat. There was nothing accidental about the “dieselgate” scandal, which was an intentionally-conceived mission to ensure VW Group vehicles passed emissions testing by cheating.
Many are understandably wondering whether the new so-called “impossible-to-cheat” emissions tests will really work.
Former VW CEO, Martin Winterkorn, has reportedly received a court summons in Germany to testify in relation to a legal action for compensation.
The legal action is understood to be relating to shareholders who are claiming damages from Volkswagen over the “Dieselgate” emissions scandal.
According to reports, 28 others are also facing questions, including recently-arrested Audi boss, Rupert Stadler, and Bosch CEO, Volkmar Denner.

It’s July 2018, which means the new emissions laws have come into force to stop future Volkswagen style emissions scandals.
The new legislation, at the very least, acts as a far better deterrent to prevent future emissions scandals.
The new emissions laws have been brought in to specifically crack down on emissions cheats like Volkswagen. To make sure they’re punished for their historic cheating, we’re a part of the Steering Committee of law firms taking legal action against VW for over 60,000 victims in England and Wales.
Porsche limiting European sales speaks volumes in terms of the inability of VW Group brands to keep their diesel engines legal.
At the time of the announcement, Porsche said that the number of models sold in Europe would be limited as a result of the changes to emissions testing; changes that likely stemmed from the Volkswagen emissions scandal in the first place.
Although they’re not the only carmaker to have halted or limited sales as a result of the changes, the Porsche recalls and the “Dieselgate” scandal itself say a lot in terms of the legality of these engines in my view.
Let’s take a look at the Rupert Stadler criminal investigations since his arrest in Germany at the end of last week.
The development was a major step forward in the pursuit of justice against the individuals within the Volkswagen Group – which includes subsidiary company Audi – to make sure that the people behind the veil of the corporation, and therefore behind the dieselgate crisis, are appropriately reprimanded.
Rupert Stadler is the latest high-profile figure to be intimated in the scandal, and we are monitoring the progress of the Rupert Stadler criminal investigations very closely.
Big news from the continent: just days after the announcement of investigations into several senior Audi employees, Audi boss Rupert Stadler has been arrested.
Audi, as part of the Volkswagen Group, have millions of their vehicles fitted with the defeat devices that have allowed vehicles to cheat life-saving emissions testing. Audi CEO Rupert Stadler’s arrest is welcome news as prosecutors continue to investigate the carmaker for their actions to get to the bottom of who in the VW company is personally responsible for the scandal.
According to prosecutors, they have made the arrest after concerns that Mr Stadler might try to ‘suppress evidence’.
