Sign-up to an emissions group action today - use our quick and easy form to start your claim for thousands of pounds in compensation.
In recent years, a series of car emissions scandals have affected thousands of owners across the globe, beginning in 2015 with the revelation that Volkswagen was suspected of using ‘defeat devices’ to allow their vehicles to cheat emissions tests. Since then, several major car manufacturers have been levelled with similar allegations, and we have taken on many clients in our endeavour to help them win emissions pay-outs.
At The Car Emissions Lawyers, we are determined to help anyone affected by a car emissions scandal to access the compensation which they could be legally entitled to claim. Over the years, we have been representing victims in group actions against manufacturers including Porsche, Jaguar Land Rover and Mercedes, to name but a few.
Allegations of diesel emissions fraud have long been investigated in Europe following the revelation that Volkswagen had been manipulating emissions controls in its vehicles, cheating regulations. As the EU issues fines for emissions scandal culprits such as VW and BMW, questions have been raised about the impact on the wider car manufacturing industry and who else may also be involved in similar behaviour.
VW and BMW have been singled out in a recent antitrust investigation by the European Commission over claims that they had colluded with Daimler, the owner of the Mercedes-Benz brand. According to The Guardian, this was in relation to delaying the development of “emissions-cleaning technology” in their vehicles. Now, upon the conclusion of the investigation, the two companies have reportedly been hit with a total fine of €875m.
The findings of the investigation suggest that the three companies acted unlawfully. Many other well-known car brands have similarly been levelled with accusations of emissions fraud in the wake of the Volkswagen emissions scandal, so the conclusion of this EU investigation could be a sign of further penalties to come.
In 2015, Volkswagen hit the headlines in the infamous “dieselgate” scandal, in which the carmaker was accused of using illegal defeat device technology as a means of cheating emissions tests. But Volkswagen has since become just one among many car manufacturers to be subjected to such allegations, causing the scandal to soon become practically industry-wide. We are already taking on claims as part of our Vauxhall emissions compensation action, as we believe there is enough evidence to suggest that Vauxhall may similarly have breached emissions regulations.
If the allegations against Vauxhall are proven, and they remain denied at present, the company may have breached consumer law. If this is the case, the affected vehicle owners could be entitled to recover thousands of pounds in compensation. Anyone who thinks that their diesel car may have been affected by the emissions scandals can check their eligibility via our online form today.
Soon after the news of the “dieselgate” scandal broke, Your Lawyers – The Car Emissions Lawyers – were taking on claims for those affected. We anticipated that the case against Volkswagen could constitute one of the biggest consumer group actions ever seen in the UK, and we were later appointed to a key role in the Group Litigation Order (GLO), sitting on the Steering Committee. We also envisaged that other carmakers would need to be investigated, and emissions claimants can trust in our experience and expertise in this niche area of law.
The French emissions investigations into car manufacturers have reportedly expanded to include Fiat Chrysler Italy, alongside a number of other carmakers already being scrutinised over allegations of breaching emissions regulations. The recently reported inclusion of the Stellantis-owned FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) Italy is understood to have come this July, following reports in June which stated that Peugeot, Citroen, Renault, and Volkswagen are facing charges of emissions fraud by French prosecutors.
Since 2015, when the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal first emerged, a number of advances have been made in emissions investigations. The list of major carmakers accused of cheating emissions tests has grown in length, with many well-known brands being subjected to investigations across Europe and around the world.
As a specialist firm of consumer action lawyers, Your Lawyers played a key role in initiating the Volkswagen litigation in England and Wales, bringing compensation claims on behalf of affected customers. We now want to ensure that further carmakers are properly scrutinised for alleged emissions allegations, which is why we keep a close eye on any legal developments even when in other jurisdictions.
A Mercedes-Benz emissions settlement has been granted preliminary approval in a class action lawsuit in the USA. The agreement between Mercedes-Benz and law firms has reportedly been reached following consumer claims against the carmaker, which alleged that diesel vehicles had been fitted with systems that may have manipulated emissions. This could then allegedly allow them to produce amounts of Nitrogen oxide (NOx) gases that exceeded the legal limits.
The claim in the US case mirror allegations against Mercedes and its parent company Daimler which span across the globe, with millions of vehicles suspected of emissions irregularities. Many accusations against Mercedes have their origins in the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal from 2015, in which it emerged that the well-known manufacturer had been cheating emissions tests by means of illegal software known as defeat devices.
As pioneers of emissions litigation, we initiated the first High Court proceedings against Volkswagen in 2016 in England and Wales and have since been fighting to ensure that car owners affected by emissions scandals can recover the compensation they deserve. We believe that the Mercedes settlement in America bodes well for our own action against the company, so affected victims can sign up today if they want to join the fight for justice. They deny any wrongdoing here still, and claims are at a much earlier stage as investigations into allegations continue.
Since the Volkswagen ‘dieselgate’ scandal hit the headlines in 2015, many other car manufacturers have come under scrutiny regarding the emissions output of their diesel vehicles. Hyundai is one of a range of earlier carmakers to be subjected to allegations of excessive NOx (nitrous oxide) production, having reportedly been fined in 2014 over the fuel economy and carbon emissions of its cars. We are taking on Hyundai emissions compensation claims to ensure that all those who may have been affected by any alleged deceit relating to ‘dieselgate’ scandal types of issues can achieve justice.
As with others, the carmaker denies any wrongdoing. As advocates of consumer rights, it is important to us that all the emissions allegations against carmakers are thoroughly investigated in order for us to help as many affected customers as possible to achieve the justice that they deserve, where the law has been broken.
Soon after the news of the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal broke, carmaker after carmaker became implicated in the growing allegations of emissions fraud. Volkswagen was only the first of many well-known manufacturers to be accused not only of breaching emissions regulations, but also of deliberately cheating testing by means of illegal defeat device technology allegedly installed in their diesel vehicles. Having been subjected to similar allegations, Suzuki is also under suspicion, and we are investigating the carmaker as part of our Suzuki emissions compensation action.
As pioneers of emissions litigation, we were one of the first firms in England and Wales to formally take on diesel emissions claims against Volkswagen, and we were subsequently appointed to the Steering Committee responsible for the overall conduct of the VW Group Litigation Order (GLO). Using our unique expertise in emissions claims, we aim to ensure that all guilty carmakers are held to account, and that as many affected owners as possible can access the compensation that they deserve.
If you have been affected by the Suzuki diesel emissions allegations, you can sign up today to launch your No Win, No Fee compensation claim.
In 2015, Volkswagen found itself at the centre of the infamous ‘dieselgate’ scandal after it was accused of using illegal defeat device technology in order to cheat emissions tests. Seeking to avoid the pressure of meeting regulations on NOx emissions, the argument was that Volkswagen had developed a device that allowed it to disguise the true emissions output of its diesel vehicles while undergoing testing. In the wake of the scandal, more and more manufacturers were subjected to emissions fraud allegations, including South Korean carmaker Kia, against which we are now taking on Kia emissions compensation claims.
Your Lawyers became specialist Car Emissions Lawyers through our pioneering role in the Volkswagen emissions litigation. Sensing the potential to take action against this potentially huge violation of consumer rights, we were one of the first law firms in England and Wales to formally register claimants. Soon after, we initiated High Court proceedings against Volkswagen in early 2016.
We have since been pursuing group actions against several other carmakers, and Kia has been added to the list. It is important to us that all cases of emissions fraud are rooted out, although it is also important to note that Kia, like others, strongly deny they have done anything wrong. If you think you may have a claim, you can use our online form today to find out whether you could be eligible to join the fight for justice.
We are investigating and taking on claims for a proposed Jeep emissions compensation action following accusations of emissions fraud against the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) group. FCA, a parent company of the Jeep brand, is alleged to have cheated emissions testing, which could be by means of illicit defeat devices, although the carmaker strongly denies any wrongdoing at all.
The allegations against Jeep are similar to those made against a number of car manufacturers, all of which emerged after the news of Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal that was first reported in 2015. It was discovered that Volkswagen was suspected of using defeat device technology to disguise the emissions output of their diesel vehicles, meaning they were producing much more NOx emissions than regulatory limits allowed.
Your Lawyers has played a key role in the Volkswagen NOx emissions litigation. We were one of the first firms to formally take on compensation claims for clients, and we were later appointed to the Steering Committee responsible for managing the Group Litigation Order (GLO) on behalf of the claimants. Now, we are seeking to achieve justice for clients who may have been affected by the actions of over a dozen car manufacturers. Anyone who owns or previously owned an affected Jeep vehicle could receive thousands of pounds in compensation if they make a claim.
Following a monumental four-year legal battle, the UK Supreme Court has ruled in favour of Your Lawyers after a lengthy appeal case against Harcus Sinclair was concluded. The case initially arose from an agreement signed by the two firms in relation to the Volkswagen emissions litigation.
Unfortunately, Harcus Sinclair subsequently failed to honour the agreement made with Your Lawyers. Your Lawyers has been trading as The Car Emissions Lawyers since 2015 when news of the first “dieselgate” scandal hit the headlines, representing thousands of owners claiming against a range of carmakers in England and Wales.
Aman Johal, lawyer and director of Your Lawyers (The Car Emissions Lawyers), expressed his relief at the ruling: “This is such an important victory for Your Lawyers but also for the dignity and sanctity of the legal profession. We have lived and breathed this case for four long years and were forced to take the matter all the way to the UK Supreme Court simply to oblige a law firm to honour an agreement that they freely entered into.”
Since 2015, when it was revealed that Volkswagen’s diesel cars may have been emitting far more nitrous oxide emissions (NOx) than allowed by emissions regulations, we have been pursuing claims against car manufacturers on behalf of affected vehicle owners. We knew that the Volkswagen dieselgate scandal was only the tip of the iceberg, and many major carmakers have similarly been subjected to allegations that they may have cheated emissions tests. We have launched several emissions compensation actions in our effort to ensure that all those who may potentially be affected by car emissions scandals can access the compensation that we think they deserve.
So far, only Volkswagen has been found to have used defeat devices in the courts of England and Wales, and we initiated High Court proceedings against the company in 2016. In the subsequent actions, we want to use our experience of emissions litigation to hold adiesel vehicle manufactured ny other potentially guilty car manufacturers to account.
Where carmakers have broken emissions regulations, they may also have broken consumer rights law. You have a right to expect that manufacturers and dealers are honest about the vehicles they are selling to you. As such, where they have breached this duty, you could be eligible to make an emissions claim with us to ensure you receive the compensation that you deserve.
As a brand owned by the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Group, Alfa Romeo has fallen under suspicion regarding the potential use of illegal defeat devices in its vehicles. Although the specific models have yet to be fully identified, it is believed that hundreds of thousands of FCA vehicles may have been affected by emissions irregularities. We are taking on Alfa Romeo emissions compensation claims on the basis of the current allegations of alleged deceitful practices.
The ‘dieselgate’ scandal first shook the world in 2015, when Volkswagen came under fire for the alleged use of illegal defeat devices, installed in the manufacturers to allow them to cheat emissions tests. As a result of our pioneering work, Volkswagen has now had a finding against it in the High Court of England and Wales.
We are now working tirelessly to ensure that as many affected vehicle owners as possible have a chance to claim the compensation that they deserve. If you own or have previously owned a potentially affected Alfa Romeo model, you may be able to join our action to fight for justice. They, as with other carmakers, deny that they have done anything wrong.
