United States law firm, Hagens Berman, is a global litigation pioneer advocating for consumers who owned or leased dirty diesel emission vehicles, reaching settlements in these matters exceeding $16.9 billion.
The firm is at the forefront of emissions-cheating cases, a highly specialised realm of law. The firm is dedicated to this cause, and is the only U.S. firm that has purchased an emissions testing machine to determine if other diesel car manufacturers install similar cheating devices, bringing new cases based on the firm’s own research, time and testing. In doing so, Hagens Berman has become a proactive pioneer – testing vehicles, effecting scientific evidence of new fraud and leading the charge against automakers who violate the law, which includes Mercedes. No other firm has taken on the risk in developing automotive emissions cases like Hagens Berman has.
When news broke in 2015 of Volkswagen’s massive diesel emissions-cheating scandal, Hagens Berman represented thousands of consumers and took a leading role that would result in a $14.7 billion, record-breaking settlement for owners. Hagens Berman’s work and results are further evidenced by the recently announced $2.2 billion agreement in principle regarding Mercedes’ diesel vehicles, culminating investigations brought by the Department of Justice, Environmental Protection Office and California attorney general. The agreement includes a $700 million settlement for U.S. consumers impacted by loss of resale value and other damages resulting from Mercedes’ emissions fraud. Hagens Berman is committed to ensuring recovery for all Mercedes owners around the globe and, in collaboration with Fox Williams LLP, will be helping Mercedes owners in England and Wales obtain the justice they deserve.
