Is this real and why is it possible to make a claim?
Yes, it is real and Versus Law are investigating a potential group claim against Mercedes-Benz and it’s parent company Daimler. The claim stems from an alleged ‘cheat device’ fitted to certain vehicles. The purpose of the alleged cheat device was to reduce emissions artificially so that the vehicles would pass EU emissions tests. We believe that software of this kind and in particular a large corporate organisation behaving in this way is against UK law. As such, we are planning on bringing a legal claim for compensation on behalf of consumers who own or owned affected vehicles.
