News of another settlement in relation to emissions cheating claims has reached us from the shores of the US, this time to the tune of $3.5m in Ohio.
The claims settlement is reported to be for the 2015 “dieselgate” scandal that VW has found itself at the centre of, and this latest settlement is yet another in a long like that have taken place so far.
While this latest development has taken place in a separate legal jurisdiction to here, any news of another settlement is always welcome to us as we continue to fight to uphold the rights of anyone who has been wronged as a result of vehicle emissions problems.
Over the course of our involvement in the ongoing vehicle emissions scandals, we have aimed to respond to all suspicions of fraud and/or emissions irregularities as they have arisen. When the “dieselgate” scandal first hit the headlines in 2015, it was Volkswagen in the line of fire, but it has since emerged that many other manufacturers have been accused of similar behaviour. Among our numerous group actions, we are taking forward Suzuki fuel emissions claims for owners who may also be caught up in alleged emissions cheating.
To us, the car emissions issues revealed in recent years represent not only a huge environmental and public health scandal, given how harmful and dangerous NOx can be, but they also amount to a significant violation of consumer rights, where the allegations against manufacturers are proven. This is because the suspected carmakers are accused of potentially misleading customers regarding the emissions output of their cars. This could mean that customers were not fully aware of what they were buying and what damage their vehicle may have been doing.
If you have been affected by any allegations of emissions irregularities, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as you can, as you could be entitled to thousands of pounds in compensation. Eligible clients can claim compensation on an entirely No Win, No Fee basis with us.
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.
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.

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.
Media outlets have reported that Nissan and Porsche have been facing allegations over allegedly providing false emissions information in South Korea.
As leading pioneers of justice for emissions scandals here in the UK, this seems to be yet another story where the governments and regulators are looking into emissions problems over diesel vehicles. Whilst carmakers continue to strongly deny that they have done anything wrong, more and more evidence keeps mounting up, and more and more legal actions are being initiated.
This latest action in South Korea is not the first, and will probably not be the last.
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.
