The Dieselgate claim deadline is just two weeks away. At this late stage, anyone who has yet to claim is at risk of missing out completely.
Our phonelines have been ringing off the hook today with the Dieselgate claim deadline now just two weeks away. The deadline has been set as 26 October 2018, so unless anything changes, that’s it. After that point, you will be unable to join the class action we’re engaged in.
We’ve been saying for the past few weeks now that anyone who has yet to sign-up is already at risk of missing out. We’re now at a stage where anyone who isn’t signed-up and agreed to our Litigation Management Agreement could be at risk of losing thousands of pounds in unclaimed damages.
We’re now less than 80 days until the VW group action deadline. It’s fast approaching, and the clock for those who have yet to join is ticking.
Anyone who has still yet to launch their claim absolutely must do so before the VW group action deadline passes by. We won’t be taking on cases at the last minute either as we need to make sure that the tens of thousands in the action who have already signed up are fully prepared in terms of their cases and the information we need.
The deadline for claim acceptance will fall before the cut-imposed deadline. You MUST ACT NOW to avoid missing out.
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.
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.
Contrary to the perceptions VW appear to have done well to paint with the media and public, the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal is far from over. With the deadline to join the class action against them formally set as 26 October 2018, the legal fight for justice has really only just begun, and there is plenty to be done before the deadline elapses.
Our firm has been appointed to the Steering Committee who are leading the action against VW in the High Court of Justice. Anyone who has yet to start their claim and join our Claimant Group is urged to do so before the deadline expires to avoid missing out.
Former Volkswagen CEO, Martin Winterkorn, has been formally charged by US authorities for violating the Clean Air Act and allegedly covering-up knowledge of the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal.
Court documents reportedly reveal that Winterkorn knew about the automaker’s use of the defeat devices, yet he failed to alert authorities and covered up knowledge of the cheating behaviour.
These latest criminal charges are set to put even more pressure on Volkswagen who has already settled compensation claims in the US but is currently refusing compensation to UK victims.

You’ve probably seen all the press coverage this week surrounding our involvement in the Volkswagen Emissions Scandal action. Your Lawyers’ Principal Solicitor and Director, Aman Johal, has been widely quoted in the national press given his position at the forefront of the pending litigation.
Right now, the big hearing is on!
We’re lawyers who have been leading the fight for justice since the breaking of the ‘dieselgate’ scandal back in 2015, so a few people out there who are yet to start their claim may not take our word for it as to why they need to join the action now.
You should listen to our advice, though.
There have already been a number of hearings and a number of changes in how client groups are moving forward, and we have changed our options for claiming several times to reflect changes in the litigation as well.
Here are a few reasons as to why if you don’t bother to start your claim now could soon spell the end of your chances completely…
The next big hearing is set to take place at the end of March 2018, and this hearing may well trigger the deadline date for claimants to join the Volkswagen Emissions Action and claim their compensation as a victim of the “dieselgate” scandal.
The court will normally set the final date, and if you miss the deadline, you may be unable to claim any compensation at all. Having been involved in previous actions where some people simply left it too late, they ended up being unable to claim tens of thousands of pounds in compensation.
Our advice is simple: do NOT delay and claim NOW!
Former head for Volkswagen’s engineering and environmental office in Michigan, Oliver Schmidt, was given a maximum recommended prison sentence of seven years for his involvement in the VW Emissions Scandal. He was also given a maximum recommended fine of $400,000 (£300,000).
Schmidt was charged and convicted for conspiracy to defraud the U.S. and for violating the Clean Air Act. Schmidt wrote to Judge Cox admitting he was given “a script, or talking points” by senior members in the company, inferring he was only following instructions.
Does this vindicate him? We don’t think so…
