What is the Leigh Day Emissions Claim about?

Several leading vehicle manufacturers have been accused of fitting 'defeat' devices to their vehicles to cheat the EU and UK emissions laws. 

We believe thousands of UK vehicle owners have been affected by this and 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?

Leading experts in vehicles emissions group claims

We are the 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.

No win - No fee

This means that we will only deduct a percentage of your damages if the claim is successful, but you will not have to pay anything if the claim is lost. To find out all about costs, please visit the individual pages by the manufacturer of your vehicle.
