Sign-up to an emissions group action today - use our quick and easy form to start your claim for thousands of pounds in compensation.
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.
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 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.

If you have been involved in any of the recent alleged emissions scandals involving car manufacturers such as, Mercedes, Nissan & Renault, Porsche, or Fiat, you could be eligible to make a compensation claim with us today.
If you have been affected by the Porsche scandal, you could be eligible to make a Porsche emissions compensation claim with the Car Emissions Lawyers now.
Following the Volkswagen ‘Dieselgate’ scandal that broke in 2015, it has been alleged that a number of car manufacturers are following the same pattern, possibly using a form of ‘defeat device’ software to trick emissions tests. Whilst car manufacturers are not admitting to the use of such devices, with most having strongly denied allegations that they have faced, we believe Porsche (along with others) may have used such devices.
Volkswagen also refuted claims that they were using defeat devices, but the high Court has found that they were used in a number of models. We believe this to be the same with Porsche and would like to help all individuals affected make a Porsche emissions compensation claim.
Your Lawyers (T/a The Car Emissions Lawyers) are pioneers in vehicle emissions action. We were one of the first to take action for the Volkswagen ‘Dieselgate’ emissions scandal and have been taking action ever since. Read on to find out more about the Car Emissions Lawyers below.
We are an experienced law firm that is passionate about the impact of emissions scandals on our health and the environment, and we make it our mission to champion consumer rights. With the emissions scandals, it is down to allegations that some manufacturers could be using a form of ‘defeat device’ software to cheat emissions tests and pass EU emissions restrictions. By cheating the tests, cars could then produce illegal amounts of NOx (Nitrogen Oxide) during normal use which can be extremely harmful to both the human population and to the environment.
If your vehicle has been subject to a software update in relation to engine management, systems, or emissions, you could be eligible to make an emissions claim with us now.
If you have yet to do so, we always advise that starting an emissions claim as soon as possible is the best way to go, and we are here to help you now.
It is important to understand that every single case will be subject to legal time limits to claim. There are time limits as set out in the Limitations Act, and there are also court deadlines to make sure you do not miss in most cases like this as well.
Once these time limits have expired, it may be the case that you can no longer go ahead with the case without special permission from the court. This is not something that is commonly granted, so you must make sure that you do not miss out on the chance to claim.
The European Commission currently has tight emissions tests and regulations in place for light–duty (cars, vans) and heavy-duty vehicles (lorries, buses), and for non-road mobile machinery.
Over the last few years, with the introduction of higher standards, the legal limit of NOx (Nitrogen Oxide) has reportedly decreased by almost 70% for diesel cars.
Unfortunately, to meet these tighter restrictions, some car manufacturers stand accused of using ‘defeat devices’. This can be a type of software that can allow vehicles to restrict performance and pass their emissions tests, but allow for far greater emissions levels when being used on the road. The scandals stemmed from the original VW “dieselgate” issues that came to light in 2015 that has resulted in the High Court making a finding that the technology they used is a defeat device.
Can software updates affect vehicle performance? If so, what can you do about it, and how can we help as expert Car Emissions Lawyers?
Several car manufacturers, including VW, Mercedes and Nissan and Renault, are alleged to be involved in emissions scandals. Allegations are that engines can produce far more NOx emissions than allowed by European regulations as a result of the testing regimes being cheated.
To pass the emissions tests put in place, manufacturers stand accused of using ‘defeat devices’ that can do things such as detect when the cars were being tested, which can alter whether the emissions controls are engaged or not. This can mean that, on the road, the actual emissions could be far higher.
Porsche limiting European sales speaks volumes in terms of the inability of VW Group brands to keep their diesel engines legal.
At the time of the announcement, Porsche said that the number of models sold in Europe would be limited as a result of the changes to emissions testing; changes that likely stemmed from the Volkswagen emissions scandal in the first place.
Although they’re not the only carmaker to have halted or limited sales as a result of the changes, the Porsche recalls and the “Dieselgate” scandal itself say a lot in terms of the legality of these engines in my view.
The latest string of arrests, raids and recalls has taken the shine off luxury Volkswagen-owned Porsche. In the last few weeks, an EU-wide recall has been triggered for some 60,000 Porsche Cayenne and Porsche Macan models that are suspected of containing emissions cheating software.
This news came just weeks after Porsche had also been accused of cheating emissions testing by starting vehicles in second gear to lower tax bands for owners.
But this isn’t the only recent headache the VW-owned luxury brand has had to face: arrests and raids have been rife as prosecutors in more than one territory intend to get to the bottom of their involvement in emissions cheating behaviour.
