Mercedes Benz Emission Fraud Lawsuit

Daimler, the parent company of Mercedes Benz has agreed to pay over $2 billion dollars in settlement to US authorities. Daimler has also settled a class action lawsuit from vehicle owners in the amount of $700 million, inclusive of attorney fees. The settlement stems from Daimler outfitting approximately 280,000 Mercedes Benz vehicles with software designed to cheat emission testing. The software disengages emission controls when temperatures are less than 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Mercedes Benz charged their customers a premium for their “clean diesel” vehicles, knowing all the time it was a scam. If you purchased one of the “clean diesel vehicles” listed below then you paid thousands of dollars for a feature you did not receive.

THE BAD NEWS

Your vehicle will require a repair or recall in order to make it compliant with State and Federal Emission standards. These repairs often lead to other issues with your vehicle and compromise the fuel efficiency and/or performance of the vehicle. Repairs, recalls, emission violations, etc. can all cause your vehicle to depreciate.

THE GOOD NEWS

I CAN HELP YOU! I am a Consumer Law Attorney with over 25 years of experience successfully handling thousands of these types of cases throughout the United States. I handle these cases individually and in collaboration with attorneys licensed in Texas and California. You have rights, remedies, and entitlements provided by State and Federal laws that may entitle you to recover damages. We will not charge you any attorney’s fees unless a recovery is obtained for you. In any event, if there is no recovery, then you will not be responsible for any attorney’s fees or costs incurred by us.

DO NOT GET LOST IN A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT

I WANT TO HELP YOU! Rather than getting treated as a number and lost in a class action lawsuit, call us! A class action settlement is a compromise that usually requires that your claim be resolved for less than its value if you were to pursue your claim individually. Contact us to represent you and to provide you with the information you need to make an informed decision about your car, so you make the decisions about your case. If you retain me to represent you then we will pursue those damages available that may include but are not limited to (1) repurchase/rescission of the sale of your vehicle; or (2) compensation for the depreciation in the value of your vehicle due to the misrepresentations made by Daimler; plus (3) any other remedy that you may be entitled to under law including attorney fees and costs.

WHAT WILL IT COST YOU? NO RECOVERY = NO FEES OR COSTS!

We will represent you on a contingency basis and will not charge you any attorneys’ fees or litigation expenses unless we obtain a recovery. If we do not make a recovery for you then you will not owe us any attorney fees or litigation expenses.
