So what are you waiting for? It’s time to claim the compensation you deserve.

Are you affected by the Volkswagen Emissions Scandal?

The Volkswagen Group breached emissions regulations by fitting a defeat device into 1.2 million vehicles in the UK.

Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions from the affected vehicles exceeded the permitted limit. 

If you owned, leased or financed a Volkswagen, Audi, SEAT or Skoda manufactured between 1st January 2008 and 1st January 2016 you may be entitled to compensation.

One million people are yet to make a claim. If you don’t file a formal claim, you will lose the right to do so.

Is it too late to claim?

No, but act soon. The existing claimants in England and Wales have had an initial victory at court, but with several legal issues yet to be resolved we are accepting new clients and there is still time for you to make a claim.

How does a group claim work?

A group claim is where one claim is made on behalf of a large number of claimants.

This differs from a large number of individuals all making separate claims over the same issue and is more affordable.

Is claiming straighforward?

Yes. You provide information and documents about the vehicle through our online system.

We store your data safely and we do not share it. A dedicated member of our legal team will keep you informed every step of the way.

“It is a pleasure to work with the team, who have an excellent practical and professional approach to dealing with client requirements and expectations.”

Why claim with LGWP Law?

The Volkswagen Group breached emissions regulations by fitting a defeat device into 1.2 million vehicles in the UK. Diesel emissions contain Nitrogen Oxides (NOx). NOx emissions are harmful to your health and detrimental to air quality.

LGWP Law supports clean air for all. Through helping you to claim the financial compensation you deserve from the Volkswagen Group, we also enable you to send a strong message to manufacturers that breaching emissions regulations is not okay.

We offer a simple and clear claims service on a no win no fee basis. If you don’t win, you don’t pay any legal fees or expenses. Our fee is 30% of your compensation plus VAT, or only 20% plus VAT if we don't need to go to court.

Your vehicle

When you bought or leased your vehicle, you were under the impression that it would meet the emissions standards.

A ‘defeat device’ was installed in the vehicle, so that emissions control systems only worked whilst it was being tested.

When the vehicle was on the road, Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) emissions exceeded the permitted limit.  This is a violation of emissions regulations.

When you sold, or sell, the vehicle, you may get less money for it than you would have, had it met emissions standards.

The manufacturer didn’t tell you that the vehicle was fitted with a defeat device. The High Court have recently found that the vehicles were fitted with defeat devices. We believe that you are a victim of deceit.

A factor that went into setting the price you paid for the vehicle, was that it complied with the emissions regulations, but as it did not, you paid more for the vehicle than you should have.
