What Is An Emissions Claim?
The first emission claim began in 2015 when Volkswagen were found to have installed "defeat devices" into their vehicles. This software understood when the vehicle was being tested. When it was activated during testing, it would lower the emissions output. In real-world driving, however, the emissions were up to 40 times higher.
The claim itself focused on the fact that you, the customer, have been lied to. Not only were you misled on the emissions of the vehicle you bought, but the environment has potentially been significantly damaged due to car manufacturer lies.
The Volkswagen Group settled out-of-court with 91,000 claimants, paying them £193million. The claimants received an average payout of just over £2,100.
The Mercedes Diesel claim in particular will look to recover UK customers compensation from the car manufacturer for deceit, potential breaches of consumer protection laws, breaches of contract and potential breaches of the Competition Act.
How Much Compensation Can I Receive For My Diesel Claim?
Many of the diesel emission claims are still being investigated and compensation amounts have not been set. Having said this, we can look to the recent landmark settlement from Volkswagen. Volkswagen settled the claim out-of-court with a £193 million settlement. 91,000 claimants were looking to receive an average payout of £2,100.
In addition to this, Mercedes have recently agreed to pay $2.2 billion in compensation and fines in USA, with each individual owner receiving thousands in compensation.
