What is all this noise about diesel emissions and claims?
This handy MoneySavingExpert page has a comprehensive explanation but let us summarise.
The issue began when Audi and Volkswagen cars faced regulatory action in the US in 2015. This was because their vehicles were producing more toxic chemicals than advertised.
A Lawsuit was brought against them because these manufacturers used illegal ‘defeat devices’ to mislead the public, which meant that there was a mis-sale.
It all happened very quickly, but people who registered with the solicitors to confirm they had owned and used a vehicle between a certain time period, then received a compensation payout from VW Group.
I’ve seen loads of TV Adverts saying I can get £10,000 is that true?
The answer in all honesty is no-one knows, you could get this, more, or less. The truth is however you will get something.
In the case of VW Group; they had 90,000+ owners register when they owned a car and they were submitted in the law suit so VW had to pay them compensation which is estimated to be at around £2,100 per owner.
The big difference with what’s happening now is that there’s been more time for the number of people to register. This means that the more people who register, the likelihood of a larger settlement. If you think about it, Volkswagen and Audi sell Millions of cars, and only a handful made a claim because only a few people knew about it.
What is Dynamo doing about this? Is there a time limit?
As a business authorised and regulated by the financial conduct authority, we’re always looking to help our customers with all financial matters especially when it comes to getting any financial uplift.
We have already pre-checked your vehicle against the list of effected vehicles and have worked with our own independent legal experts and have established that in our opinion, there is legitimacy to these claims and therefore you can make a claim for this and should be informed. As a business; all we’re providing is the introduction to a solicitor firm who can process this for you. Below is a form to fill out and the list can be found here on MoneySavingExpert should you want to contact them directly.
Can I do this on my own?
Unlike other claims like PPI, it would be almost impossible for you to bring a claim like this on your own. This is because these are complex legal proceedings which require technical expert opinion to establish facts.
If you were to bring a case yourself it is likely the solicitor costs would dwarf any payout you would get. This is the benefit of a class-action lawsuit because you simply need to register with a solicitor when you owned a vehicle and they will add you to the claimant pile and process with the case.
How Long will this take?
Registering your ownership takes only a few moments which you can do by clicking this link. Once submitted, a firm representative will contact you to introduce themselves as the firm handling the case. There is no spam or anything like that. They will then make sure you’ve completed all the necessary steps to sign up and will add you to the claimant pile. Once that’s submitted they will inform you of the timeframe and any updates.
If you owned or used a Diesel vehicle which was registered between 2006-2020, it’s likely you will be eligible for compensation. If you would like to receive a compensation payment you will need to register your ownership with an approved law firm. Once registered, you don’t need to do anything else and they will pay you once this has been received.
This should not be viewed as a ‘Quick win’ or ‘Instant payout’ – It may take days, months, or years. But, the only way to guarantee any payment. You need to just check the information below is accurate and press submit it’s that easy.
