What Happens After Submitting Diesel Emission Claims?
What to consider before you make a claim.
Only sign-up if you have a case.
You should only make a diesel claim if you suffered genuine financial loss, such as buying a vehicle at a premium because you thought it had lower emissions. You need to demonstrate in court that you wouldn’t have bought the car or van had you known the truth about emissions.
You can also claim if you can show the emissions scandal reduced the sale value of your vehicle. After 2015, customers began paying less for diesel cars and vans on the used car market.
Get legal advice if you aren’t sure you have a legitimate case. Lawyers can advise you on whether courts will accept your claim or not.
Check if you have a case quickly.
Online tools let you check quickly if you have a case. All you need to do is enter your vehicle make and registration number to start your free inquiry. Legal firms can usually tell you automatically if you qualify, and decisions typically take less than a minute.
If you financed your vehicle you may also discover that you have been mis sold car finance also known as PCP claims and could be owed further compensation.
You can withdraw from claiming within 14 days.
If you sign up for a diesel emission claim scheme but later decide against it, you have 14 days to cancel your agreement with the lawyer without paying anything. However, you might have to pay legal costs if you wait longer than this grace period. Lawyers will always explain the situation to you in full. It is then up to you if you proceed with a case.
You probably can't (and shouldn't) bring a claim of your own.
Making an independent claim against VW, or any of the other automakers implicated in the emissions scandal, is challenging. Cases are complex and costly, and the fees involved in taking car makers to court yourself will outweigh any compensation you receive.
Therefore, most owners bring cases by joining a legal group headed by a reputable legal firm. Many groups have thousands of people, all sharing the cost of the case.
Note, though, that even though carmakers broke the law, lawyers cannot guarantee you will win your case. Therefore, you may not receive any compensation at all.
Cases may take more than five years to complete.
Complex cases involving dozens of witnesses and testimonies can take years to go through the courts. Therefore, you may need to wait a long time before you receive compensation.
For example, the first VW Group case was formed in 2018 but only secured a trial for January 2023, nearly five years later. Fortunately, Volkswagen saw it would lose and settled out of court in May 2022. However, if the case had gone to court, victims might have had to wait several years to get the money they deserved.
