It’s August. This means we’re now two months away from the VW Group Action deadline that falls in October this year.
For anyone who has yet to start their claim for compensation against VW as a victim of the massive “dieselgate” scandal of 2015, time really is of the essence. Although the formal Court deadline falls at the end of October 2018, the deadline for lawyers accepting claims is set to fall in advance of the final Court deadline.
There’s now just 90 days left to make your Volkswagen emissions claim, but lawyers’ books for new claims are set to close in advance of the deadline.
It’s 90 days until the Court-imposed deadline, but Claimants wishing to join the massive action that we’re on the Steering Committee for must have their cases fully prepared in order to be able to join the action and benefit from any settlement that takes place in the future. Failing to join in time will likely mean you will be unable to make a claim at all, based on prior experience of Claimants missing Group Litigation Order deadlines.
If you’re serious about claiming, take action now.
We’re now less than 100 days until the Volkswagen claim deadline falls. The deadline for accepting claims will fall BEFORE the above Court deadline.
The Court-imposed deadline is essentially the final deadline for claims to be submitted to be a part of the massive legal action in England and Wales that we’re on the Steering Committee for. Although the Court deadline is now less than 100 days away, the actual deadline for your claim to be accepted and prepared will fall well in advance of the court deadline.
This means that, if you have yet to start your claim, you must get on with it ASAP to avoid missing the Volkswagen claim deadline.
There has been another Volkswagen settlement in the US as the UK remains ignored. In this latest settlement, VW are set to be paying $33.5 million to the US State of Maryland as a result of the “Dieselgate” emissions scandal.
News of this latest settlement that follows a long line of settlements totalling around $15 billion in the US will serve only to anger the ignored UK consumers who are being completely refused compensation.
This is why the legal action we’re co-steering is important.
Will Volkswagen settle the emissions claims against them on the eve of trial?
In the UK and Europe, VW is refusing compensation to owners affected by their “dieselgate” scandal, despite the huge settlements they have agreed to in the US. Earlier this year, VW settled another case that was set for trial, and they reportedly did it on the eve of the case going to court.
Although we’re behind the US cases because the legal systems here in the UK are different, will we see a similar situation where VW settle the claims on the cusp of trial?
