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.
Even before the Volkswagen ‘dieslegate’ scandal hit the headlines, Kia was already suspected of allegedly deceiving its customers. In 2014, Kia and Hyundai were reportedly fined $110m for allegedly misinforming its customers about their vehicles’ carbon emissions output and fuel economy. Instead of releasing the average results produced by their tests, Kia and Hyundai are said to have published the optimum results, reportedly distorting the statistics to allegedly gain a market advantage.
As Kia and Hyundai are affiliated companies, both have been implicated in subsequent allegations that their diesel vehicles could be fitted with defeat device technology. It is understood that the vehicles may allegedly be emitting excessive NOx emissions and could, therefore, be in breach of regulatory limits.
We are still investigating the current allegations for our Kia emissions compensation action in order to establish exactly which vehicles may have been affected, if any are. It is important that this process is thorough to ensure that as many affected owners as possible can claim the compensation they deserve, if they are entitled to do so.
When bringing Kia emissions compensation claims, we will be basing our case on the alleged deceit Kia may have engaged in. If Kia has not been truthful about the amount of NOx emissions produced by its vehicles, the company may have breached your rights as a consumer.
We may also look to bring additional legislation into the claim. For example, the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations could award claimants from 25% to 100% of the purchase price of their vehicles in damages, if applicable.
We are able to take on eligible Kia emissions compensation claims on a No Win, No Fee basis, which means you won’t have to pay any of our legal fees if the claim is unsuccessful, subject to the terms and conditions in place. As we believe strongly in promoting access to justice, it is important to us that we offer this protection to our clients.
Having been previously appointed to the Steering Committee for the Volkswagen emissions litigation, our pioneering role in emissions litigation has equipped us with the skills and tools necessary to hold carmakers to account if they are in breach of the law. Anyone who owns or leases (or previously owned or leased) a potentially affected vehicle can start their compensation claim online today.
