VW is paying UK diesel owners £193m and Mercedes owners are being urged to act quickly
Online legal information service ClaimExperts.co.uk helps owners get compensation they may have previously missed.
LONDON, UK, June 25, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — ClaimExperts.co.uk announces it is reaching out to Mercedes owners concerned they have missed out on compensation for a global emissions scandal.
ClaimExperts.co.uk is an online resource that produces easy to understand and comprehensive guides to all kinds of claims in the UK. The service connects potential plaintiffs with an expert panel of pre-vetted law firms and attorneys, and is completely free – while ensuring users can make any legal claim armed with the information they desperately need.
According to ClaimExperts.co.uk, the Dieselgate scandal as it is now known, which began in 2015, has finally come to an end, with 91,000 plaintiffs winning thousands in compensation from Volkswagen in an out-of-court settlement.
Now, Mercedes Diesel owners are next in line for a payout. The £193m deal sees each claimant receive an average payout of just over £2,100, a much appreciated sum in the current cost of living crisis.
The scandal found Volkswagen cheating on emissions tests by installing a defeat device on some of its diesel vehicles. This piece of software would recognize when the vehicle was being tested and cut emissions, but when the vehicles were on the road emissions could be up to forty times the legal limit where it was tested in the US.
Now Mercedes-Benz, which is facing similar diesel engine tampering claims, could be next in line for a potential bruise in the UK. However, Mercedes owners are urged to act soon to avoid a similar fate of many Volkswagen owners. Indeed, in recent weeks ClaimExperts.co.uk has been inundated with messages from Volkswagen owners wishing to make a claim – and who are now being told they are too late.
“In the last two weeks alone we’ve had hundreds of inquiries related to the now-closed Volkswagen diesel emissions scandal,” said William Morris, director at ClaimExperts.co.uk, who spoke about the rise of disappointed Volkswagen owners. “People see their neighbors receiving thousands in compensation and ask, ‘Why didn’t I do that?’ So we’re reaching out to Mercedes diesel owners now, so those who are eligible for diesel emissions offsetting don’t miss out. Our aim is to ensure that Mercedes is held accountable for its emissions potential through our comprehensive services.”
Experts estimate that around 1,000,000 UK Mercedes could be affected, with each of these vehicles being owned by multiple people in the eligible years between 2008 and 2018.
“All of this suggests that Mercedes has a similar headache on the horizon, similar to Volkswagen,” says Morris.
“Mercedes continues to deny any wrongdoing and has said they would challenge the lawsuit in court, but the case is now pending with various investigators and legal experts investigating the German manufacturer. In the meantime, our team at ClaimExperts.co.uk have a free eligibility checker to determine if you may be entitled to compensation. Find out more about this verifier at ClaimExperts.co.uk’s partner website Emissions.co.uk here.”
Other vehicle manufacturers may also have fitted a defeat device to their engines. As such, ClaimExperts.co.uk also offers owners of other manufacturers the opportunity to place their details on a waiting list pending further investigation.
