Volkswagen can face emissions claims where cars bought, EU court rules

European Union citizens should be able to sue Volkswagen in their national courts if they have bought cars with emission cheat devices installed, the EU’s top court has ruled.

The Court of Justice of the European Union has today ruled that EU consumers should be able to sue Volkswagen in their national courts. This is a step in the right direction for the vast number of Clients that Burns Nowlan LLP Solicitors are acting for in seeking compensation from Volkswagen for installing defeat devices in their vehicles. We have noted that the majority of our clients were first notified of the defeat devices in October 2015. The timeframe for issuing proceedings against Volkswagen is 6 years from this date and therefore anyone who has been affected should contact us as quickly as possible to ensure they protect their legal rights.
