Volkswagen emissions scandal UK

If you have recently purchased a Volkswagen, Audi or Skoda you are likely to be considering how the emissions scandal affects you and your vehicle and whether or not you can launch a claim against the Volkswagen group for compensation.

With VW diesel vehicles in the UK coming under the gaze of the European Commission, dealerships, franchises and owners may have legal claims for breach of contract if they can prove they have purchased the vehicle as a result of false information provided by VW which have subsequently affected the value of the vehicle. 

Our experts will continue to monitor the situation and updates will be provided when available including news relating to any possible class action or group action.
