Why sign-up for VW Compensation?

Back in autumn of 2015, a colossal scandal broke out that shook the motor industry to its core.

Volkswagen group and its subsidiaries were found to have been cheating car emissions testing through the use of so-called “defeat devices” – a fact of which VW are bizarrely accepting in some countries, and disputing in others. This shocking scandal has also prompted governments and authorities to initiate investigations in various countries across the world.

The impact on owners has been huge.

Impact on owners

As well as potentially immense damage to the environment and health of the population, the scandal affects Volkswagen group vehicle owners directly by potentially depreciating the value of vehicles. Since the scandal broke, some owners have found their cars are worth a lot less than what they had expected.

The depreciated value of the cars may also affect an owner when they try to sell it: who would want to buy a car that emits legally excessive pollutants, and may not be as good after the “fix” has been applied?


If you purchased one of these cars prior to October 2015, you may be eligible to make a claim in our action with thousands of others:

If you vehicle is not listed above but you have received a recall letter, get in touch with our friendly claims team to see if you are eligible to join the action.

If you bought your vehicle from an approved VW group dealership after the 1st of October 2014, or made any finance payments after this date, you may be eligible for our additional claim under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008. Some law firms advertising in the media are not even looking at this very valuable avenue, so speak to us today to see if this applies to you.

You can still be eligible even if you no longer own the vehicle!

Don’t dismiss your chances to claim because you have traded in or sold your vehicle; you may still be able to join the action! Of course, any ongoing losses may be classed as having come to an end, but we can still help you recover any losses incurred during.

Please note that if you do sell or trade in your vehicle, make sure you obtain a fair market value. We recommend you use a comparison or valuation website to check what your vehicle was worth at the time of trading. This can also be used as vital evidence for the claim as well.

What you can claim for…

For all our claimants we are seeking to recover up to 100% of the purchase price of the vehicle.

We believe Volkswagen should not profit from cheating customers out of their hard earned money by selling and marketing vehicles as ‘eco-friendly’, and in our view, misleading consumers.

We will be looking to recover financial losses incurred as a direct result of the scandal. Whether this is from parts that have not worked after the “fix” has been applied; or anything else.

How we work

We are one of the main U.K lawyers involved in what may be the nation’s largest ever Group Action Claim. We were the first to properly take on claims, and the first to initiate court proceedings on the High Court of Justice last year.

We have a team of expert lawyers and barristers working on constructing a strong and robust claim to take on Volkswagen group and hold them accountable for their wrongdoings. We’re acting on behalf of thousands of affected owners to take Volkswagen to Court and demand that justice be served in the form of financial compensation paid back to our clients.

We are so confident in our case that we are offering our services on a No Win, No Fee basis. This means that, in the event you lose your claim, we can write off our fees.
