What is the Leigh Day Emissions Claim about?

A number of leading vehicle manufactures have been accused of fitting 'defeat' devices to their vehicles in order to cheat EU and UK emissions laws. 

We believe thousands of UK vehicle owners have been effected by this and so are eligible to receive compensation. Leigh Day are acting on behalf of these owners and if successful, we believe UK vehicle owners who join the claim could receive compensation worth up to 75% of the purchase price of their vehicle. 

Why choose Leigh Day?

No win no fee - if successful we would be paid a maximum of just 35% of your damages, if we aren't successful you pay nothing

We will be bringing these claims on a 'No Win-No Fee' basis. This means that we will only deduct up to 35% (inclusive of VAT) of your damages if the claim is successful, but if the claim is lost you will not have to pay anything.

Leading experts in vehicles emissions group claims

Leigh Day are joint-lead lawyers in the emissions litigation on behalf of UK Volkswagen owners, who recently won the first round of their emissions case against Volkswagen in the UK High Court.

In April 2020 the High Court in London found that the decision by the KBA, the German road vehicle authority, that the software was a ‘defeat device’ was binding in the English High Court.
