Renault emissions compensation claims

Nissan and Renault emissions

Since 2015, a number of regulators and investigators have been scrutinising car manufacturers in regards to potential emissions fraud. Some investigations were provoked by the Volkswagen “dieselgate” scandal first reaching the news, with the carmaker subjected to allegations that it had used illegal defeat device technology to cheat emissions test. French carmaker Renault has since come under suspicion, and if the accusations prove to be true, those who own or have owned affected vehicles may be eligible to pursue Renault emissions compensation claims.

Like other carmakers, Renault strongly denies that they have done anything wrong. We will thoroughly investigate claims to see whether this is the case or not.

Our firm has played a pioneering role in emissions litigation since the beginning. As strong advocates of consumer rights, we saw that the “dieselgate” scandal represented what looked to be a significant injustice for thousands of people. We initiated High Court proceedings against Volkswagen to ensure that justice was done, and now we want to ensure that all other suspected carmakers are thoroughly investigated on behalf of the customers who may have been affected.

Claimants engaged in group and multi-party legal actions can be entitled to recover compensation for revision surgery where this is an applicable factor.

Preventing medical implant problems is key for the future

hernia mesh compensation claims

It may sound obvious when we talk about the importance of preventing medical implant problems before mass scandals occur, but it is a key point to raise given our line of work.

As specialist Group Action Lawyers, we have represented thousands of people engaged in group and multi-party actions. Some of those have been for medical implant scandals, including the PIP Breast Implant Scandal, the Vaginal and Hernia Mesh issues, and the Metal-On-Metal Hip Implant cases. What this means is that we have seen first-hand just how badly patients can suffer when things go wrong, and we do not want to see a repeat of such scandals and the awful consequences that ensue. Whilst it can be difficult to prevent problems like the PIP Breast Implant cases where deceit was involved, preventing medical implant scandals through better testing and warnings is a development to push forward with.

It is easy to look back in hindsight and see what could have been done differently. But it is important to look to the future to make sure that there are no repeats of mistakes that could have been prevented.

The wider importance of our emissions actions

emissions compensation claims

Our emissions actions now number at over 30 in terms of the number of carmakers that we are taking legal cases forward for, representing thousands of people on a No Win, No Fee basis.

Whilst action for justice for the consumers is important and is an integral part of what we are doing, it is also incredibly important to recognise the wider importance of the action that we are taking.

Hernia mesh compensation case – we can help

hormonal contraceptive cancer study

Despite their use in patient treatment for a long time, hernia mesh implants have become a huge cause for concern after many patients have come forward to report complications resulting from the use of mesh. According to some estimations, as many as tens of thousands of patients who have undergone mesh surgery in recent years could face complications further down the line. In a hernia mesh compensation case, people could pursue compensation claims for any suffering from harmful consequences from hernia mesh, and it may be that they were victims of medical negligence.

Prior to recent shocking revelations, many patients who agreed to undergo surgery to implant hernia mesh may have had little to no knowledge of the potential dangers associated with the medical device. Where doctors may have offered the treatment with little regard for potential pain and injuries, they may have breached their duty of care, and their actions could constitute medical negligence.

If you are among those who have been affected by mesh implants, we know that the pain and suffering may have taken a severe toll on your life. We are here to support you through this difficult time, and to give you the chance to claim the compensation you deserve.

Files on dark web after Stor-A-File cyberattack

medical recall for temperature sensors

It has been reported that tens of thousands of files that were exposed in the recent Stor-A-File cyberattack are now on the dark web and could be exploited by criminals.

We recently reported on the Lister Fertility Clinic data breach, which is one of the organisations affected by the cyberattack that involved services that they outsourced to Stor-A-File. The clinic has written to some 1,700 patients to inform them that their personal and sensitive medical details could be affected by the data breach. This latest development will no doubt come as a further blow now we know that information has been exposed on the dark web.

As leading Group Action Lawyers, we are taking action now and you can speak to the team here for confidential advice on pursuing a data breach compensation claim.
