What claims are we currently investigating?

Slater and Gordon are leading experts in Collective Actions and were appointed as the joint Lead Lawyers in the ground-breaking Volkswagen Emissions Group Litigation where we successfully reached a significant settlement for our clients. We represented 71,000 of the 91,000 claims and our clients’ successes have established a new law which has seen claims against other manufactures emerge for similar emissions concerns.

VW Group emission claim

The case came after the Defendants were found to have installed software into vehicles which detected when the cars were undergoing emissions testing and would temporarily reduce the amount of harmful exhaust gas, to meet the testing standards.

Mercedes-Benz emissions claim

We’re pursuing a collective action on behalf of affected Mercedes diesel vehicle owners in which our clients allege that the manufacturer cheated emissions tests and produced non-compliant, highly polluting vehicles. Our thousands of clients are also alleging that Mercedes and other manufacturers colluded to suppress clean emissions technology being used in their vehicles to reduce costs and increase profits.

You could be entitled to between 25% and 100% of the value of your vehicle back in compensation if you’re eligible to bring a claim under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations and that claim is successful.

Vauxhall emission claim

We’re pursuing a claim against Vauxhall to enable tens of thousands of Vauxhall owners to hold it to account for allegedly producing vehicles that don't comply with emissions limits.

The Department for Transport in the UK found that Vauxhall models were some of the worst tested with the Corsa exceeding NOx limits by a factor of six and the Insignia by a factor of 10 when driven on the road.

Regulators in Germany have concluded that Vauxhall has installed ‘defeat device’ software in several of its models including the Zafira, Insignia and Cascada, and we expect the scandal to deepen as more information becomes available.

You could be entitled to between 25% and 100% of the value of your vehicle back in compensation if you’re eligible to bring a claim under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations and that claim is successful.

Why should you join our diesel claims?

We believe the false pretences under which these vehicles were sold is deceitful and has not only caused frustration and loss to customers, must also irreversible damage to the environment.

Environment

The affected vehicles produce an unlawful amount of the harmful pollutant, Nitrous Oxide (NOx). The impact this has on the air we breathe is thought to be the cause of thousands of deaths every year and lead to numerous adverse health effects. Holding manufacturers responsible will speed up the pace of change in the motor industry in the move away from dirty diesel to cleaner fuels.

Accountability

Corporate manufacturing companies are not above the law. We've seen instances of manufacturers involved in the scandal denying any wrongdoing and refusing to compensate their customers, despite paying billions in fines and having employees jailed. Very little by way of regulatory action has happened in the UK. Joining our group actions is a way for the consumer to hold large corporations accountable for their actions and send a powerful message that their unlawful behaviour will not be tolerated.

Compensation

There's the very real possibility that you could be owed compensation. We'll argue that this will be a percentage of the value of the price you paid for the vehicle (between 25% and 100% for those claimants that can bring a claim under the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations) or the difference in the price paid for the vehicle and its true worth. Depending on the make and model of your vehicle this could amount to several thousands of pounds.

No win, no fee

We work on a No Win, No Fee agreement, meaning that if your claim is not successful, you do not need to pay our fees.
