Mercedes Diesel Class Action
Have you ever owned or leased a Mercedes diesel vehicle? You may be entitled to compensation.
GMP Law has lodged a class action claim against Mercedes-Benz over the manipulation and misreporting of its Engine Testing, in relation to their diesel vehicles, particularly with Emissions
This class action is on behalf of people who own or leased the affected Mercedes diesel vehicles, and the compensation could potentially be a significant proportion of the purchase price of the vehicle for each owner. In some instances, there may be an entitlement to a refund.
If you own or lease a Mercedes diesel vehicle you could be eligible for compensation if the class action is successful.
About the Claim
Mercedes-Benz has been subject to investigations worldwide over the installation of 'cheat devices' in their engines which would misreport its performance under testing, particularly of emissions of Nitrogen Oxide (NOx).
NOx is toxic and harmful and has been associated with, amongst other things climate change, acid rain, and respiratory conditions, such as childhood asthma. In misrepresenting their engine emissions, Mercedes is likely to have caused irreversible environmental damage.
Owners and lessees of affected vehicles appear to have been misled about the performance of their vehicles. We are seeking to hold Mercedes-Benz accountable for its actions. We will fight for compensation on behalf of owners and lessees of affected Mercedes vehicles.
GMP Law is committed to taking to task car manufacturers that flagrantly take advantage of consumers worldwide, particularly honest Australians in this climate conscious world!

No Win - No Fee
We will act for class members on a 'No Win-No Fee' basis.
This means that we will only charge professional legal fees and out-of-pocket expenses if the claim is successful. At the successful outcome of the matter the Court can be expected to make an order that Mercedes pay the claimants’ professional legal fees and out-of-pocket expenses.
We presently intend to commence proceedings in the Supreme Court of Victoria and to apply for a Group Costs Order. If a Group Costs Order is made, the Court may allow a court approved percentage of the amount of compensation or damages to be deducted and paid to the lawyers conducting the case.
In the event that the claim is not successful, you will not be personally liable for Mercedes’ professional legal fees and out-of-pocket expenses.
