Our Director Alisha Butler is involved in the VW Group Litigation as a consultant and she states that: “Owners / previous owners may have claim similar to that of the VW group litigation claimants. These large manufacturers should not be deceiving the public with these cheat devices. People often buy their cars based on claims made by the manufacturers such as “environmentally friendly” or “Cleanest Diesel Cars Ever” but these vehicles have been shown to have cheat devices which change the results of the emission tests so they show a reduction in emissions when being tested but then revert to higher emissions when back on the road. This is fraudulent and the general public are having the wool pulled over their eyes by companies they trust and we are here to fight their corner”

If you own / did own or lease an affected vehicle then you could claim and receive thousands in compensation.

We confirm that we work on a no win, no fee and our deduction is capped at 25% of any compensation. Please note that there may be a further deduction of approximately 5% in respect of insurance.
