How might some owners claim as much as £96,000.00?
It is reasonable to wonder where the £96,000.00 figure has come from given that this is a huge amount of money. In short, some owners could genuinely receive as much as this by pursuing their claim in a certain way, which is what we are able to do for eligible owners.
This is how it works.
If we can establish that Daimler has made use of technology that amounts to a defeat device, the Your Lawyers Mercedes emissions compensation action should hopefully succeed. For some Claimants, legislation known as the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (CPUT) may apply.
We can find out if it may apply when you sign-up to join our compensation action.
CPUT can allow an eligible Claimant to receive compensation that amounts to a percentage of the purchase price of their vehicle. Depending on the severity of the CPUT breach, which could be determined by the Court, Claimants could be eligible to receive between 25% and 100% of the purchase price of their vehicle. Generally speaking, the more severe a breach is, the greater the percentage applied may be.
According to figures from the Mercedes website at the end of May 2020, the highest ‘on the road price’ of a vehicle listed that may be affected by the recall was £96,220.00. If anyone purchased this vehicle (the G-Class SUV) brand new then the ‘on the road’ price, according to Mercedes, is £96,220.00. If their vehicle is affected by the recall and a Claimant is eligible for a 100% pay-out, this is how this amount could be recovered.
Depending on if CPUT applies, and what the percentage is, and depending on how much you paid for your vehicle is how we work out how much a CPUT claim is worth. CPUT damages are being pursued in the earlier Volkswagen Emissions Scandal litigation that we were appointed a position on the Steering Committee for back in 2018 . Not all law firms may pursue every avenue of damages available, but our focus is always on making sure our clients receive the fair justice that the law can entitle them to.
Daimler, of course, is disputing that they have done anything wrong. We will pursue them hard to fight for the rights of the victims affected by this issue and, where CPUT applies, pursue the damages the law entitles them to.
