Contrary to the perceptions VW appear to have done well to paint with the media and public, the Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal is far from over. With the deadline to join the class action against them formally set as 26 October 2018, the legal fight for justice has really only just begun, and there is plenty to be done before the deadline elapses.
Our firm has been appointed to the Steering Committee who are leading the action against VW in the High Court of Justice. Anyone who has yet to start their claim and join our Claimant Group is urged to do so before the deadline expires to avoid missing out.
Reminiscent of the behaviour Volkswagen was caught out for, we are now asking the question: “Are BMW cheating emissions testing?” A US lawsuit says they are, which has been launched against the German automotive giant over what is being alleged as “misleading” practices.
The legal case launched says that BMW allegedly failed to disclose “emission manipulations”, and the result is that the vehicles cannot perform without wrongfully manipulating emission controls.
It’s all very familiar of the Volkswagen Emissions Scandal we are currently representing victims for.
We have noted before that experts say German automakers, like Volkswagen who have been caught out cheating emissions testing, are responsible for additional early deaths as a result of the extra pollution they caused.
Former government chief scientist, Sir David King, literally stated that they have “blood on their hands“; so, what’s being done about it? Are companies like Volkswagen going to be punished like they deserve to be?

You’ve probably seen all the press coverage this week surrounding our involvement in the Volkswagen Emissions Scandal action. Your Lawyers’ Principal Solicitor and Director, Aman Johal, has been widely quoted in the national press given his position at the forefront of the pending litigation.
Right now, the big hearing is on!
The deadline is set by the court, but we can tell you now that the deadline is likely to be set in the next few months.
This means that, if you have yet to start your Volkswagen Emissions Claim and you’re serious about making a claim, you need to get started now.
It’s easy to join and we are helping people on a No Win, No Fee basis. For these types of actions, you don’t need to do a lot as we will do all the legal work for you.
Read on for more KEY advice.
We’re lawyers who have been leading the fight for justice since the breaking of the ‘dieselgate’ scandal back in 2015, so a few people out there who are yet to start their claim may not take our word for it as to why they need to join the action now.
You should listen to our advice, though.
There have already been a number of hearings and a number of changes in how client groups are moving forward, and we have changed our options for claiming several times to reflect changes in the litigation as well.
Here are a few reasons as to why if you don’t bother to start your claim now could soon spell the end of your chances completely…
The next big hearing is set to take place at the end of March 2018, and this hearing may well trigger the deadline date for claimants to join the Volkswagen Emissions Action and claim their compensation as a victim of the “dieselgate” scandal.
The court will normally set the final date, and if you miss the deadline, you may be unable to claim any compensation at all. Having been involved in previous actions where some people simply left it too late, they ended up being unable to claim tens of thousands of pounds in compensation.
Our advice is simple: do NOT delay and claim NOW!
When Volkswagen admitted that some 11 million of their vehicles worldwide were laced with cheat devices capable of allowing emissions controls to be activated during testing, but deactivated outside of test conditions, the world realised that one of the biggest brands on earth had knowingly deceived us all.
Despite accepting what they have done and agreeing huge pay-outs and fines in America and Canada, VW are refusing compensation to UK owners, claiming they think they are not legally responsible to do so. The action we are fighting in aims to change this, and amid fresh claims that carmakers are continually misleading customers, it’s a matter of time – in our view – until VW pay what they owe.
If you’ve yet to sign up for your Volkswagen Emissions Action compensation claim, you’d be wise to sort your claim out as soon as possible.
At the end of this month, a hearing is taking place where the particulars of the group action moving forward are likely to be determined. This may include which firms will be leading the action and when the deadline will be to join the action.
We’ve been fighting for justice for VW victims since the very beginning, so if you’ve yet to sign up to our claimant group, the time is now!
When the news broke that one of the biggest companies on the planet had been cheating emissions testing, the world was shocked. Not only were we left surprised as to how they’d managed to get away with such abhorrent behaviour for so long, but we were also angered at why they would do such a thing in the first place.
Prior to the emissions scandal, VW scored very highly in terms of climate strategy, ecological sustainability, compliance and anti-corruption. When the truth came out about what they’d been doing, their fall from grace was sharp.
With blood on their hands due to Nox pollution from “dirty diesels” and increasing inner-city environmental damage, not to mention experiments on monkeys, a simple question really needs answering: “Hey, VW! Where’s your Corporate Social Responsibility?”
