A Mercedes-Benz emissions settlement has been granted preliminary approval in a class action lawsuit in the USA. The agreement between Mercedes-Benz and law firms has reportedly been reached following consumer claims against the carmaker, which alleged that diesel vehicles had been fitted with systems that may have manipulated emissions. This could then allegedly allow them to produce amounts of Nitrogen oxide (NOx) gases that exceeded the legal limits.
The claim in the US case mirror allegations against Mercedes and its parent company Daimler which span across the globe, with millions of vehicles suspected of emissions irregularities. Many accusations against Mercedes have their origins in the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal from 2015, in which it emerged that the well-known manufacturer had been cheating emissions tests by means of illegal software known as defeat devices.
As pioneers of emissions litigation, we initiated the first High Court proceedings against Volkswagen in 2016 in England and Wales and have since been fighting to ensure that car owners affected by emissions scandals can recover the compensation they deserve. We believe that the Mercedes settlement in America bodes well for our own action against the company, so affected victims can sign up today if they want to join the fight for justice. They deny any wrongdoing here still, and claims are at a much earlier stage as investigations into allegations continue.
Since the Volkswagen ‘dieselgate’ scandal hit the headlines in 2015, many other car manufacturers have come under scrutiny regarding the emissions output of their diesel vehicles. Hyundai is one of a range of earlier carmakers to be subjected to allegations of excessive NOx (nitrous oxide) production, having reportedly been fined in 2014 over the fuel economy and carbon emissions of its cars. We are taking on Hyundai emissions compensation claims to ensure that all those who may have been affected by any alleged deceit relating to ‘dieselgate’ scandal types of issues can achieve justice.
As with others, the carmaker denies any wrongdoing. As advocates of consumer rights, it is important to us that all the emissions allegations against carmakers are thoroughly investigated in order for us to help as many affected customers as possible to achieve the justice that they deserve, where the law has been broken.
It was revealed in 2017 that PSA, the manufacturer of Peugeot and Citroen vehicles, was being investigated by French prosecutors after its offices had been raided. Under suspicion of cheating emissions tests, Peugeot became just one among many manufacturers to be scrutinised over the potential use of alleged defeat devices and excessive emissions output. If the vehicles are found to have broken regulations, claimants could be eligible to recover thousands of pounds in Peugeot emissions compensation. The carmaker, like others, denies any wrongdoing at all.
The “dieselgate” scandal shook the world when it was alleged in 2015 that Volkswagen’s diesel cars may have been fitted with technology that allowed them to pass emissions tests. Later, it was proven that these cars were producing volumes of NOx that exceeded the regulatory limits, which had gone unnoticed due to the use of defeat devices.
We were one of the first law firms to bring claims against Volkswagen in England and Wales, and we later played a key role in the litigation after we were appointed to the Steering Committee responsible for the overall conduct of the Group Litigation Order. Our experience in emissions litigation means that we have the expertise needed to take on your Peugeot compensation claim.
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.
We are taking on Citroen emissions compensation cases for claimants, as current allegations suggest that the manufacturer may potentially be involved in the use of illegal defeat device technology. The PSA group, which owns the Citroen brand, became the subject of suspicion as early as 2016, when it was revealed that French prosecutors had reportedly begun investigating the company regarding potential emissions issues.
Citroen is one of many car manufacturers to have become the subject of emissions allegations since the Volkswagen ‘dieselgate’ scandal shook the industry in 2015. We were quick to respond by taking on claimants and initiating High Court proceedings against Volkswagen in early 2016, and we have been pursuing a number of different investigations into other manufacturers ever since.
If it emerges that certain Citroen vehicles are fitted with software that allows them to cheat emissions tests, the affected owners could be entitled to thousands of pounds in compensation. You can find out if you could be eligible to claim by contacting our specialist team today.
As a brand owned by the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) Group, Alfa Romeo has fallen under suspicion regarding the potential use of illegal defeat devices in its vehicles. Although the specific models have yet to be fully identified, it is believed that hundreds of thousands of FCA vehicles may have been affected by emissions irregularities. We are taking on Alfa Romeo emissions compensation claims on the basis of the current allegations of alleged deceitful practices.
The ‘dieselgate’ scandal first shook the world in 2015, when Volkswagen came under fire for the alleged use of illegal defeat devices, installed in the manufacturers to allow them to cheat emissions tests. As a result of our pioneering work, Volkswagen has now had a finding against it in the High Court of England and Wales.
We are now working tirelessly to ensure that as many affected vehicle owners as possible have a chance to claim the compensation that they deserve. If you own or have previously owned a potentially affected Alfa Romeo model, you may be able to join our action to fight for justice. They, as with other carmakers, deny that they have done anything wrong.
As one of latest car manufacturers to become embroiled in the car emissions scandals of recent years, Ford has come under suspicion following allegations that it may have used illegal defeat device technology. As we continue to investigate the allegations, those who own affected vehicles may be able to claim Ford emissions compensation. The carmaker, like others, denies any wrongdoing at all.
After Volkswagen was implicated in the dieselgate scandal in 2015, a number of other manufacturers were similarly accused of manipulating their cars to pass emissions tests in some way. The majority of carmakers have been associated with excessive nitrous oxide (NOx) emissions allegations, and the accusations against Ford have also linked it to allegations of the overproduction of carbon emissions.
If it does emerge that customers have been deceived regarding the emissions output of their vehicles, there may be a case for a Ford emissions group action, in which claimants could recover thousands of pounds. We have been invested in the fight against carmakers over such allegations from the beginning, having initiated High Court proceedings against Volkswagen in early 2016. Now, we are determined to ensure that all those affected by car emissions scandals can access the justice they deserve where allegations are found to be true.
Ever since the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal first emerged in 2015, we have been investigating allegations of emissions cheating made against a number of car manufacturers. BMW is one of the latest names to be added to our list, and is believed to be associated with the Volkswagen emissions scandal, as BMW is alleged to have colluded with Daimler and Volkswagen in order to restrict the emission controls in their diesel vehicles. Following fines and recalls in Germany, we believe that the allegations have enough weight for us to take on BMW emissions compensation claims.
Like other carmakers, BMW denies that they have done anything wrong and, at this stage, we are investigating allegations.
With our unique experience in emissions litigation, we are expanding claims to include a number of other manufacturers, including Ford, Vauxhall and Mitsubishi. We are determined to make sure that as many affected owners can access the compensation they might be entitled to, so you can register your details today to find out whether your vehicle may have been affected.
Nissan, alongside associated brand Renault, is currently the subject of investigations into the alleged use of defeat devices in its vehicles. The allegations, born in the wake of the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal, concern the debate over whether or not Nissan has used illegal defeat device technology to disguise its vehicles’ non-compliance with emissions regulations. If it is confirmed that customers were deceived regarding the emissions output of their vehicles, they may be able to make Nissan emissions compensation claims.
After a court case in which we played a key role in, Volkswagen was found to have been using illegal defeat devices to cheat emissions tests. The allegations of deceitful emissions practices now spread widely across the car manufacturing industry, and while they have yet to all be proven, we are determined to ensure that all suspected manufacturers are thoroughly scrutinised in order to root out any wrongdoing.
Nissan, as other carmakers are doing, strongly deny that they have done anything wrong. Our investigations will determine if this is the case or not.
As one of the first firms to take on Volkswagen diesel emissions claims, we have been investigating diesel emissions claims ever since 2015.
The dieselgate scandal was born when Volkswagen was accused of using illegal defeat devices to cheat emissions tests and, soon after, a number of other carmakers came under suspicion regarding their alleged breach of regulatory limits on emissions outputs also. As the allegations begin to extend wider across the car manufacturing industry, we have recently begun even more emissions investigations into several other carmakers.
Beyond the potential environmental and health implications, this is also a severe consumer issue as there may have been many breaches of consumer law on an unprecedented industry scale. If it is found that you were deceived when it comes to the emissions output of your vehicle, you may be able to recover thousands of pounds in compensation by making an emissions claim.
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.
