What Is A Diesel Emissions Claim?

The 'dieselgate' scandal unfolded in 2015, revealing the use of 'defeat devices' by several brands to conceal true emission levels from their vehicles. These devices activated emissions controls solely during laboratory testing, allowing vehicles to meet regulatory standards only during assessments. In some instances, emissions surpassed legal limits by 35 times, contributing significantly to pollution.


Despite car brands hesitating to offer discounts or admit wrongdoing, you have the opportunity to file a claim for diesel emissions, potentially receiving a substantial lump sum as compensation. This issue is estimated to have affected 500,000 UK vehicles, with owners eligible for compensation. In September 2019, Daimler (Mercedes Owner) faced a €870 million fine in Germany for negligent violations of supervisory duties regarding emissions regulations.


Each claimant in the case may receive an average compensation of £8,500, contributing to a potential nationwide total of £10.2 billion, making it one of the UK's largest group actions. The Dieselgate Scandal involves hundreds of thousands of diesel vehicles producing emissions far beyond legal limits, resulting in adverse effects such as harmful Nitrogen Dioxide levels impacting health and the environment, increased fuel bills, and heightened maintenance costs.


You can contribute to environmental preservation and financial gain by reclaiming from your vehicle manufacturer. Current and previous owners can promptly check their eligibility by providing their car registration number and other relevant details. If you believe you have a claim, it's crucial to act swiftly due to statutory deadlines, known as limitation periods, governing mis-selling claims.
