Join a GLO for emissions claims

In 2015, reports emerged alleging that Volkswagen was responsible for emissions fraud, having allegedly cheated regulatory tests conducted on its diesel vehicles. In response, we launched legal claims for many affected car owners, and we were later involved in the Volkswagen GLO for emissions claims, having been appointed to the Steering Committee responsible for its overall conduct.

The “dieselgate” scandal has since unfolded further, with many other major carmakers being accused of similar emissions-related offences. Having played a key role in the fight to hold Volkswagen to account, we continue to pursue justice for all those affected by emissions fraud, pursuing several group actions against suspected car manufacturers.

We specialise in group litigation and believe that this is one of the most effective means of holding major companies to account. By allowing claimants to join our actions in their hundreds or even thousands, we can present a strong front against the defendants involved. If you believe you may have been affected by emissions irregularities, you can check your eligibility for a claim via our online form now.

Emissions claims and the allegations against carmakers

In short, many of the allegations against carmakers consist of the claims that they have manipulated the engines and/or software of their vehicles in order to cheat emissions tests. This alleged manipulation is assumed to be to disguise how much emissions the cars have been really producing, meaning that they may have been breaching regulations. This may then have caused untold harm to the environment and to human health.

In some cases, it is believed that carmakers have been using so-called “defeat devices” that may allow vehicles to “detect” when regulatory tests are ongoing. When onboard software detects such activity, it can restrict emissions output in testing environments to keep them legal. However, outside of test conditions, emissions controls could be hindered.

How does a GLO for emissions claims work?

In the Volkswagen GLO for emissions claims, the High Court determined that the software code hidden deep within the affected vehicles amounted to an unlawful “defeat device”. Although this is a positive step forward, the carmaker continues to dispute that they should pay compensation to any of the people affected.

Any future GLO for emissions claims against other carmakers could follow a similar process, but it will also depend upon the specific allegations against the manufacturer involved. There is enough evidence and information for us to pursue the claims, this much we are certain of.

In many cases, emissions claims will be brought on the basis that carmakers may have deceived their customers regarding the emissions output of their vehicles. In addition, we may be able to bring claims on the basis of a breach of the CPUT (Consumer Protection From Unfair Trading Regulations), which could entitle claimants to receive up to 100% of the original price paid for their vehicle.
