Your Lawyers Limited (t/a the Car Emissions Lawyers) is a specialist consumer action law firm that pioneered the first High Court action against Volkswagen in England and Wales after news broke about the "Dieselgate" emissions scandal. We have also been appointed to the Steering Committee leading the fight for justice. Being appointed to the Steering Committee means we are at the forefront of the High Court litigation and co-manage the course of the action.
TENS OF THOUSANDS HAVE REGISTERED COMPENSATION CLAIMS IN THE VOLKSWAGEN COURT ACTION
IF YOU ARE A CLIENT, WE WILL KEEP YOU UPDATED
The Volkswagen Emissions High Court Group Action
VW fitted millions of vehicles worldwide with defeat devices, resulting in increased amounts of dangerous NOx being polluted. NOx is lethal and damages our environment. Consumers have been misled, and VW must be held to account for their wrongdoing.
Your Lawyers were one of the first law firms in England to represent Claimants against Volkswagen on a No Win, No Fee basis in October 2015, and the first law firm to launch cases against Volkswagen in the High Court of Justice in January 2016.
From the very beginning when the news broke about Volkswagen's deception, we emphasised the importance of working with other lawyers in the U.K. and across the world in a unified approach. VW is one of the biggest corporations in the world and it takes the combined expertise of law firms to fight them through the courts.
We established ourselves, as the first law firm in England to launch High Court proceedings, in a strong position. We have been appointed to the Steering Committee by the High Court of Justice, and secured funding and top-rated insurance to protect our Claimant Group.
We have been working with lawyers and partners in America and across Europe, and our team has been fighting for justice since news of the breaking of the VW Emissions Scandal.
The court action is underway where a Group Litigation Order (GLO) has been established. A GLO is an order of the court which permits a number of claims with common or related issues (of fact or law) to be managed collectively.
The Deadline to Join The Court Action Has Expired
The deadline to join the Court action expired at the end of October 2018. Tens of thousands of victims of the Volkswagen Emissions "Dieselgate" scandal registered their claims in time for the action.
We are confident the action initiated against VW will succeed, which is why we offered our clients a No Win, No Fee arrangement.
If the case is lost, we can write off our legal fees and the litigation funder can cover court costs, expert fees and Counsel fees paid out on our clients' behalf.
The Steering Committee in the action would not be acting for tens of thousands of victims of the VW emissions scandal unless we were confident we can win the legal battle against them. In the U.S. and Canada, billions have already been paid out, and we're looking to make sure that victims in England and Wales receive the compensation they deserve.
