Edwin Coe is assisting truck rental businesses with damages claims on a no win, no fee basis. The claims arise out of a cartel finding by the European Commission. The cartel lasted from 1997 to 2011. Unlike others, Edwin Coe is not acting for those who rented trucks on a short-term basis in the period, so we are able to assist those who bought trucks and then rented them out to third parties.

If you or your business bought trucks weighing six tonnes or more and then rented them out to third parties between 1997 and 2012, please get in touch. You or your business will have overpaid for the trucks because of the price fixing that was prevalent in the trucks market at the time. Five truck manufacturers (MAN, Volvo/Renault, Daimler, Iveco and DAF) have admitted to the European Commission that they participated in a price fixing cartel against purchasers of their trucks from 1997 until 2011

Edwin Coe has funding in place for these claims. This means that the funder will cover the legal costs of the claim in exchange for a share of any damages secured at the end of the proceedings – there is nothing to pay as the claim progresses. If the claim is unsuccessful, there will be nothing to pay.

The decision by the European Commission was published in 2016. Time is therefore marching on. Accordingly, if you would like to make a claim, please get in touch as soon as possible.

Please complete the following short questionnaire(s) as applicable: 1. Brand new truck purchase; 2. Leased trucks or 3. Second-hand truck purchase or contact Zahira Hussain directly.
