We are one of the Northwest’s leading legal practices, with a team which includes barristers, 18 Grade A solicitors, some of whom have over 25 years’ experience in their field of expertise, plus 100 other solicitors, chartered legal executives, and litigation members. We act on behalf of consumers who have been misled by Volkswagen Group over the true nature of their vehicles.
These companies allegedly installed defeat devices in their Diesel vehicles in order to cheat the emissions regulation tests. This means that those who have purchased or leased an affected vehicle between 2008 and 31st December 2015 can potentially bring a claim.
In order for a vehicle to be sold, registered and driven in the UK, amongst other things, it must comply with the NOx emissions limits provided in the Emissions Regulations. VW have breached those regulations manufacturing and selling vehicles that emit much higher levels of NOx than are allowed. Essentially VW fitted ‘defeat devices’ to around 1.2 million vehicles that were sold in the UK.
As a consequence consumers were misled into thinking that their vehicle was much less harmful for the environment and also charged more for the vehicle.
VW fraudulently represented that the affected vehicles complied with all relevant laws and thereafter fraudulently represented that the vehicles did not contain the ‘defeat devices’. As well as a claim in fraud, there is a breach of contract, EU Law and consumer protection laws.
Within the EU and the USA, the VW Group has already been fined and litigated against with successful settlements achieved for customers who bought these vehicles.
If you are someone who purchased or leased an affected vehicle during the relevant period, it is your right to seek financial compensation when a company deceives you.
Yes, you can still make a claim, even if the car was purchased second-hand or used. The reason you can still make a claim is because you are still effectively overpaying for a vehicle that you purchased, believing that it was better performance and had better fuel economy than it really did.

Our primary aim with this type of litigation is to get you as much compensation as possible for being misled about your car purchase.

The way that a No Win, No Fee works is that you sign up with the details that we require about you and your vehicle(s), if you’re eligible, we sign you up to the legal claim. You would then sign an agreement saying that we would only be entitled to take any money from you on the basis that we are successful in getting you compensation.
In order to ensure that you receive a fair amount of money, we will always cap our fees at a maximum of 50% of what is awarded.
Signing up is a very quick and easy process that only takes 15-30 seconds of your time. Once you have answered three simple questions about your vehicle, you simply fill in your information and we will then contact you to confirm your details.
If you are eligible, we will require a couple of documents from you about your car, but don’t worry, we will guide you through this process and make it easy and straightforward for you.If you have a Diesel Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda or SEAT, please Click Here
