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.
Could you receive up to £96,000.00?
Claimants who use certain legislation to pursue their Mercedes diesel compensation claims could be entitled to receive between £23,775 and £96,220.
The key legislation is the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations (CPUT), and it is estimated that as many as a third, or more, of Claimants could be eligible to claim using these regulations. Where we can establish a valid CPUT claim, the owner could be entitled to receive up to 100% of the purchase price of their vehicle back in compensation where a Court views that the breach of CPUT is very serious. Depending on how severe the breach is viewed can depend on how much the claim could be worth, and it usually ranges from 25%, 50%, 75% and then to 100%. In our view, if it is established that a defeat device has been used, we can only ever see this is a very serious matter.
According to pricing data from Mercedes in May, the potential range of values based on the price data could between £23,775 and £96,220 for a 100% claim.
Am I eligible to receive this?
You could be eligible to claim using CPUT if you purchased your vehicle from an approved dealership on or after 1st October 2014. If You purchased your vehicle before then, but you made any form of payment after this date, such as a finance payment, CPUT could also apply.
We can work this out for you when you pursue your case with us.
Mercedes diesel compensation claims can be pursued whether CPUT applies or not, as we firmly believe that there is a legal case to answer. However, this important legislation could be used to recover a percentage back of the purchase price you paid, which could be substantial.
