Edwin Coe comments on potential claims that may follow from the Government test results on diesel cars.
David Greene, Senior Partner of Edwin Coe, said:
“The Government tests indicate that all diesel cars tested in real conditions failed on emissions and some to a dangerous level. This does not appear to be the result of test defeating software but does put a big question mark over the lab tests that are the foundation for manufacturers claims on emissions.
In the event that manufacturers were found to have misled or been negligent on the issue when marketing vehicles, buyers would have claims against them. Bearing in mind the size of the car market in Europe, the liabilities could run into many £billions dwarfing the claims arising from Payment Protection Insurance (PPI)”.
