We have known for years that the transport industry is one of the biggest contributors to air pollution in the world. However, studies have only recently started to take account of the potential real cost of releasing toxic emissions into the atmosphere. Since the ‘dieselgate’ scandal emerged in 2015, we have been faced with the problem that many diesel vehicles may have been producing even larger volumes of harmful gases than was first thought. As a result, air quality in the UK may have become even poorer due to the alleged actions of car manufacturers.
We were one of the first, if not the first, firms to bring claims against Volkswagen in 2015, and we were the first to issue High Court action in England and Wales in January 2016. We now want to ensure that other suspected car manufacturers are held to account for alleged excessive pollution that they may have caused.
Those who think that they may own, or may have previously owned, an affected vehicle can go to our online form to confirm their eligibility and get their claims started now.
As specialists in group actions, we often represent tens, hundreds, or thousands of claimants in the same lawsuit. We can bring group actions when multiple claimants are affected by the same breach of their rights, such as when they owned a car affected by emissions irregularities. When we believe that a group action is large and strong enough to be better managed and formally recognised with the court, we can apply for a GLO, as was done in the case of our Volkswagen emissions group action.
But what is a GLO? In short, GLO stands for Group Litigation Order, and is the term often used for formally recognised group actions here in England and Wales. As a claimant, you don’t need to know all the ins and outs of the legal terminology, but it is important to know how you can register for a GLO and what this means for your claim.
We make it as easy as possible for our clients to register their claims – you can use our online form today to check your eligibility for a car emissions claim quickly now.
Having led the way in taking on emissions claims against Volkswagen in the High Court in January 2016, we have been representing many people for Porsche emissions claims for several years.
The Porsche cases are in response to allegations that Porsche may also have engaged in the use of illicit defeat devices, something that they continue to deny. As the Volkswagen Group owns Porsche, we were quick to widen our investigation to include Porsche shortly after the launch of ‘dieselgate’ action after news of the scandal shook the vehicle manufacturing industry in 2015.
Our Porsche emissions group action has been live for a number of years, and we want to reach out to more affected owners who have yet to claim. We do not want anyone to miss out on the opportunity to recover compensation.
Jaguar Land Rover is one of several carmakers we are taking investigative action against over allegations of emissions irregularities. It has been alleged that carmakers including Mercedes, Nissan & Renault and Jaguar Land Rover may not be conforming to emissions regulations and could, therefore, be in breach of the law. If you own or lease, or have owned or leased, a potentially affected vehicle, you could be eligible to make a Jaguar Land Rover emissions claim.
It is understood that tens of thousands of vehicles might be affected by the alleged Jaguar Land Rover emissions issues. In the wake of the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal of 2015, which led to the High Court ruling that Volkswagen had installed illegal defeat device technology in vehicles in the UK, we are concerned that other carmakers may be guilty of wrongdoing as well.
You can sign up to join any of our many emissions group actions today if you have been affected. Together, we can seek the compensation that you deserve in the event that the allegations against carmakers are proven to be true.
At Your Lawyers, we have been champions of consumer rights for many years, conducting group actions and individual claims relating to all kinds of consumer issues, including the major emissions issues. Read on to learn more about Your Lawyers and our pioneering work.
One of the cases we are most known for is the Volkswagen emissions group action. In late 2015, we were one of the first law firms, if not the first law firm, to begin taking VW emissions claims forward. We pride ourselves on being ahead of the curve when it comes to consumer legal issues, which is why we began investigating other carmakers with regard to potential emissions irregularities soon after the news of the Volkswagen dieselgate scandal broke.
Most of all, we believe strongly in fighting for justice that is accessible to all, which is why we are taking on eligible claimants on a No Win, No Fee basis for all of our emissions group actions. You can use our online form today to find out whether you may be eligible to claim compensation now.
Among several other car manufacturers, the Car Emissions Lawyers is investigating allegations that put the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) group in the line of fire over the suspected use of defeat device technology. Defeat devices are so named for their purpose of overcoming and cheating emissions tests, potentially allowing vehicles to break EU emissions regulations unnoticed. Any car owners affected by emissions irregularities could be eligible to make Fiat Chrysler emissions claims.
With accusations circulating on an international level, we saw fit to launch a group action against Fiat Chrysler on the basis that they may have deceived owners upon the purchase of their vehicle. If you are an affected owner, you could be entitled to thousands of pounds in compensation, and you can use our online form to confirm your eligibility.
As it stands, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) refute that they have done anything wrong, and we continue to investigate the allegations that they face.
Porsche is one of several car manufacturers that is suspected of manipulating vehicles in order to cheat emissions testing. While Volkswagen is the only carmaker to have been proven to have used defeat devices in the courts in England and Wales, we are also taking on Porsche emissions compensation claims for any car owners that may have been affected by similar issues.
The fact that Volkswagen is the parent company of Porsche has undoubtedly contributed to the accusations levelled at Porsche. Even while we await a court ruling on the matter, we believe that the allegations have enough weight for us to take on Porsche claimants, and we have been doing so for a number of years.
If you are concerned that your vehicle may have been affected by emissions issues, you can use one of our online forms to find out if you might have a claim to make.
In recent years, a series of car emissions scandals have come under public scrutiny, with several car manufacturers being accused of installing so-called ‘defeat devices’ in their vehicles in order to cheat emissions tests. Understandably, those who are not as familiar with the dieselgate scandals may be asking the question: what is a defeat device, and how does it work?
Since the first issues about Volkswagen were revealed, we have initiated legal actions against several manufacturers for allegations involving dozens of car models. We have constantly kept our finger on the pulse for any further evidence or allegations regarding the use of defeat devices. We hope to dispel any confusion surrounding the allegations against car manufacturers and, more importantly, to make any affected owners aware that they may be eligible to claim compensation.
Ever since the Volkswagen ‘dieselgate’ scandal broke in 2015, The Car Emissions Lawyers have been instrumental in the fight to hold car manufacturers to account for any unethical practices of installing ‘defeat devices’ in cars in order to cheat emissions tests. One of our most recent lawsuits is the Nissan and Renault emissions action, launched over similar allegations that the manufacturer’s vehicles may have been producing excessive emissions for sinister reasons.
The carmaker strongly denies that they have done anything wrong, and we are in the process of investigating the allegations accordingly.
If you owned or leased a potentially affected vehicle, you may be eligible to claim in our group action. Excessive vehicle pollution has been proven to contribute toward environmental damage and harm respiratory health, so it is unacceptable if car manufacturers have been engaging in fraudulent practices behind closed doors just so they don’t have to compromise on things like engine performance.
The car models affected by emissions irregularities have been accumulating ever since the first car emissions scandal hit the headlines in 2015, in which Volkswagen was in the line of fire. In the legal actions that we have since launched, we believe that millions of potentially affected car owners could be entitled to significant emissions claims pay-outs, some of which may amount to tens of thousands of pounds.
The Car Emissions Lawyers were one of the first law firms to clamp down on manufacturers suspected of cheating emissions tests, pioneering the first High Court lawsuit against Volkswagen in England and Wales. We will not let any allegations of unethical practices slip under the radar, and we have now launched actions against Mercedes, Porsche, Jaguar Land Rover, Fiat, and Nissan and Renault.
If you think you may be eligible to claim, read on to find out about the amount of compensation you could be entitled to.
Have you been contacted by Mercedes to inform you that your vehicle is part of a recall or is in need of a software update? You could be eligible to make a legal case for Mercedes emissions issues, and we may be able to represent you on a No Win, No Fee basis.
The Car Emissions Lawyers are here to help you. Our team of expert lawyers has helped thousands of people recover millions in damages. We were appointed as a member of the Volkswagen Group Action Steering Committee conducting the litigation in the High Court of Justice, in 2018. Our lawyers are committed to helping you get the justice you deserve.
If you have been affected by any of the recent car emissions scandals, it is important you do not miss the deadline to claim.
Car emissions scandals can be extremely damaging to the general population and the environment, particularly in built-up areas such as cities. Holding car manufacturers accountable for any unlawful level of toxic emissions is vital, and exactly what we are here for.
Whilst carmakers continue to deny liability for the emissions claims, we continue to push hard to hold them to account where we believe that there has been a breach of the law.
