The link between decreasing vehicle emissions and more lives being saved by preventable illnesses and afflictions is obvious. This is another reason as to why any alleged cheating of emissions regulations must be investigated, and any carmaker found to be breaking the rules must be punished.
Consumers who have been caught up in the various emissions scandals here in the UK can be eligible to join a group action for justice. The purpose of this can be to pursue compensation from the carmaker if owners have been misled, as the law can entitle this. Taking such action can act as a form of justice for any affected owners and former owners, and it can also serve as additional punishments for the offenders.
You can find out if you are eligible to start an emissions compensation case here now.
We are now over six years on from the breaking news that shook the world, when the original Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal hit the headlines. Given that emissions are dangerous, news of their alleged behaviour had a huge impact across the globe and on the transport industry on the whole.
Right from the start, in September 2015 when news of the scandal broke, we decided to take action there and then. We recognised straight away just how serious this was, and the massive impact that it would have here in the UK. That is why we immediately started taking claims for compensation forward so we could take legal action for what had been going on. If we were not the first firm to formally accept No Win, No Fee legal cases, we were certainly one of them. When others were just registering details and unsure about what to do, we took legal action right away.
It has been a long fight, and it is far from over. And it is an incredibly important fight for many reasons also.
A Mercedes-Benz Canadian class action has reportedly settled on a provisional basis in the sum of $243m to account for some 80,000 owners who have joined the claim.
In terms of the wider fight for global justice arising from allegations of emissions cheating and deception, this looks to be another positive step forward. It is understood that a hearing is set to take place this week where the court may then be able to approve the provisional settlement made, and we will be keeping an eye on developments.
As pioneers in emission compensation, we have worked and networked with lawyers around the world, including Canadian lawyers. We welcome this latest provisional decision and look forward to more as time goes on.
At Your Lawyers – The Car Emissions Lawyers – we have built a solid reputation as experts in diesel emissions litigations. Our journey in this area of law began from the outset of the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal way back in 2015, when the revelation that Volkswagen had been allegedly cheating emissions tests shook the world.
We have fought to see that Volkswagen can be held accountable for emissions fraud, taking on claims for the affected customers soon after the controversy emerged. In early 2016, we initiated High Court proceedings against Volkswagen, the first law firm in England and Wales to do so. We were later appointed to the Steering Committee responsible for the overall conduct of the litigation.
The VW NOx Emissions Litigation later led to the High Court’s determination that the software code hidden deep within the affected vehicles amounted to an unlawful “defeat device”. Since then, a number of further allegations have come to the fore with other well-known carmakers now in the firing line.
Our scrutiny of these manufacturers is still in the investigations stage, but we can also take on claims now for anyone else who has been affected by the alleged deceit of carmakers.
There has been a finding reportedly made in South Korea in relation to Mercedes-Benz and Stellantis exhaust gas emissions being “rigged”, the media is reporting.
Thousands of vehicles are said to be affected for models of the two brands. Fines could now be issued, and mandatory recalls may also be initiated.
Although this is a story from another continent, it serves as an important reminder as to how the emissions issues are far from over. A great deal of work still needs to be done to get to the bottom of the allegations that dozens of carmakers are facing.
Opel has been fined for emissions issues in Germany to the tune of $75m, according to European news agencies. This is another fine in the bag over the ongoing emissions problems that have plagued the car industry for many years now.
According to reports, Opel has been fined for emissions issues that are not related to alleged illegal defeat device technology. What the fine is for is actually is in relation to reportedly providing vehicles that were producing higher levels of emissions than had been reported to German regulators.
Opel is one of the brands that are a part of the Stellantis N.V group, with related brands that include Peugeot, Fiat, Citroën, and Vauxhall. The latter brand of Vauxhall is essentially the twin sister brand that we have here in the UK, so they are effectively the same brand really.

Your Lawyers has been involved in emissions litigation since the beginning. We have been pursuing cases since news of the “dieselgate” scandal hit the headlines in September 2015.

Now, we want to ensure that other suspected carmakers are thoroughly scrutinised and held to account if necessary.

Our emissions group actions are important for a number of reasons, both in terms of punishments for alleged breaches of the law and how this can impact us all, and in terms of justice for consumers.
We are more aware than ever when it comes to the climate emergency and the global challenges we face when it comes to our planet and our environment. Emissions laws and regulations are in place for very good and very important reasons, so any situation where carmakers have breached the law should be met with full and proper punishment.
This is what we want to achieve as part of our emissions class actions, as well as justice for victims who have been affected from a consumer perspective which is what we can achieve within the confines of the law.
Several years have passed since the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal first hit the headlines, revealing that one of the world’s biggest carmakers may have been engaging in the deceitful manipulation of emissions controls in their vehicles. As one of the first firms to bring claims against Volkswagen, we are now investigating a string of other car manufacturers in relation to allegations of emissions cheating. As such, it is incredibly important that those affected seek legal advice before the emissions claim deadlines pass.
Whilst the deadline to join the Volkswagen group action has now passed, there may still be a chance to claim for affected owners of other diesel vehicles. We are investigating many others such as Porsche, Mercedes, Nissan and Renault, and many other carmakers. By signing up as soon as possible, you can look to ensure that you do not miss out on the opportunity to recover compensation. Some deadlines may have already passed, which is why we always recommend that you start a claim as soon as you possibly can.
As pioneers of emissions litigation, we have developed expertise in this specialist area of consumer claims. As such, we have the know-how to fight for the compensation you deserve. You can use our online form to register your claim today.
Right now, there are lots of questions being asked of multiple carmakers as to whether so-called “thermal windows” are being used as a loophole to cheat emissions regulations.
The idea that carmakers could be so brazen as to cheat emissions regulations first came into the limelight in 2015 when the original Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal hit the headlines. Over the last six years, dozens more vehicle manufacturers have been scrutinised and have faced similar allegations of cheating.
Whilst carmakers strongly deny that they have done anything wrong, there is evidence that could suggest not all is above board. Your Lawyers – The Car Emissions Lawyers – as pioneers of High Court action against VW in 2016, has vowed to leave no stone unturned in efforts to get to the bottom of the allegations made. As part of our legal actions where we represent thousands of people for emissions compensation claims, we are looking into whether thermal windows are being abused.
Air pollution is serious, and we were reminded why when, in the first ruling of its kind, air pollution was listed as a cause of death for Ella Adoo-Kissi-Debrah, a nine-year-old girl who tragically passed away due to an asthma attack in 2013. The Coroner’s court reportedly ruled that air pollution “made a material contribution” to her death, disproving an initial 2014 ruling that named “acute respiratory failure” as the cause of death.
The landmark verdict was notable for clean air campaigners who have long recognised the serious issues of pollution at the core of London’s air problems. In fact, it is a nationwide issue of social injustice, with some research indicating that polluted air is significantly more concentrated in Britain’s most deprived areas.
The case of Ella Adoo-Kissi-Debrah clearly demonstrates how ignorance can cause pollution problems to develop unchecked, with fatal consequences. At The Car Emissions Lawyers, we have spent years fighting to hold car manufacturers to account for their alleged violations of emissions regulations, so we are all too familiar with attempts by people in positions of power to get away with dangerous levels of pollutant production.
Fresh allegations of “defeat devices” in Mercedes vehicles are being reported as the ongoing emissions scandals continue to hit the headlines.
We have been representing clients for emissions cases since the very beginning in 2015, and we were the first firm in England and Wales to take VW to the High Court in January 2016. Since then, we have launched dozens of actions against more carmakers as we continue to investigate the numerous allegations that manufacturers are facing.
These fresh allegations come out from Germany and add to those that Daimler/Mercedes, and others, are already facing.
