The Mercedes Emissions Action for compensation is extremely important. It is designed to hold Mercedes accountable if it is established that they have been cheating emissions testing.
Right now, parent company Daimler deny that they have done anything wrong. However, Mercedes began a ‘voluntary service action’ in 2017, recalling thousands of cars for software updates relating to engine management systems and emissions. So far, around 3 million diesel vehicles are thought to have been involved.
The Group Action Lawyers are experts in bringing together Group Action Claims, where a large number of affected victims, sometimes millions, come together to bring a joint legal case forward where similar issues arise. In this case, Daimler/Mercedes is the defendant, and we want to help fight for justice for owners for it if transpires that they have been breaking the law.

As specialist Group Action Lawyers, we are active in over 50 different group and multi-party cases, several of which are for emissions issues where we have represented thousands of clients.
We – The Group Action Lawyers – have been fighting for the rights of people pursuing emissions compensation claims since the start of the ‘dieselgate’ issues in 2015.
Thousands of people have signed up for cases with us since 2015 against a range of vehicle manufacturers embroiled in recalls and alleged scandals. This includes the Volkswagen cases (please note we can no longer take claims forward for that one), the Mercedes cases and others. In recent weeks, a large number of new clients have signed up for cases with us, and we are still taking new claims forward on a No Win, No Fee basis for Mercedes and Nissan/Renault owners.

As featured in the Telegraph, Claimants who pursue their Mercedes diesel compensation claims using certain legislation could be entitled to receive up to £96,000.00 in damages each.
This applies for Claimants who make use of important legislation that could allow an owner to receive a percentage of the purchase price of their vehicle. Not all law firms may use all the legislation at their disposal, so it is important to make sure you give yourself the best chance of succeeding with a case by being thorough.
In this article, we will explain how you may be entitled to receive compensation of up to £96,000.00, and whether this legislation may apply to you.
We are taking forward Mercedes emissions compensation claims in the same way that we have represented thousands for cases against Volkswagen, Porsche and Jaguar.
When we first took action against VW for their huge emissions scandal back in 2015, we strongly suspected that they would not be the only manufacturer to be investigated. Since then, other vehicle makers have been involved with legal actions and have initiated recalls around the world over emissions irregularities.
As we suspected, the VW scandal was the tip of the iceberg.
We are taking claims forward for Mercedes (Daimler) owners whose vehicles have been subject to recalls. We can represent clients on a No Win, No Fee basis for claims.
On 14th February 2017, the U.S. federal judge decided to share the love with thousands of affected vehicle owners when it granted preliminary approval to a $1.22 billion (£979 million) settlement offer made by VW.
In a separate hearing, U.S. District Judge, Charles Breyer, also approved a $327.5 (£262) million settlement offer made by Bosch.
Things are moving forward nicely in the U.S. which is, to be fair, frustrating for the thousands of U.K. clients we act for! We’re still confident we can win the cases though. So we’ll keep fighting them!
The ban on selling any 2017 diesel vehicles in the U.S., or any diesel vehicles, could be the biggest punishment that VW will have to face from their stunt of cheating emissions tests, which was revealed in September last year.
This could even supersede the millions of dollars in fines that they have to pay out.
The reason why I’m of that opinion is because the diesel vehicles sold in the U.S. made up a big percentage of all VW sales; which is not surprising as the German manufacturer marketed the cars to be “eco-friendly” and “greener” than other vehicles, and they cornered the diesel market well.
However, their “green assertions” turned out to be somewhat misleading…
