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.
Making the claims process easy
The thought of starting an emissions claim and the thought of going to court can be extremely stressful, and it can be intimidating for individuals as well. Thankfully, in the vast majority of cases, you will not be required to attend any court hearing at all.
Our aim is to always reduce the amount of stress you may feel during the claims process. We only take a No Win, No Fee case forward when we are confident in the success of the case. Working this way means that we can offer our clients security and confidence when it comes to the outcome of their case.
We want to help our clients – not make them feel worse.
Starting an emissions claim now
The first step for starting an emissions claim is instructing legal representatives. This means that you confirm that you wish for someone to represent you in the case.
This is what we offer. If you instruct us, you will be instructing pioneering and leading consumer action firm, Your Lawyers. If you do not instruct legal representatives early, and you leave it until the last minute, you may find that you do not have enough time to fully launch a case and get all the information and evidence together that is required.
The importance of beginning a case early can also mean that there is sufficient time to try to negotiate an effective settlement for you.
Here is where you need to go for getting started with an emissions claim now:
Will they ever learn?
Many car manufacturers across the world are now embroiled in allegations of cheating and emissions scandals. The VW scandal in 2015 was the trigger, and now we have others being investigated such as Mercedes, Nissan and Renault. Remember that, for any carmaker caught cheating, they have not only cheated their customers, but it is also likely that they have caused harm to human health and to the environment.
Your Lawyers (t/a The Car Emissions Lawyers) are pioneers in holding carmakers to account. We launched the first High Court legal proceeding against Volkswagen way back in January 2016, and we were appointed to the Steering Committee for the action back in 2108.
We are committed to holding any carmaker to account if it is found that they have been cheating the law – all on a No Win, No Fee basis for eligible clients.
