Consumer Protection


Volkswagen Diesel

Consistent with its mission to protect the rights of consumers, Global Justice Network attorneys are now representing victims of Volkswagen’s tampering with devices that measure emissions in diesel automobiles. It is reported that 11 million cars throughout the world are affected.

We have been contacted by two different types of victims who have been hurt by Volkswagen’s deception: car owners and shareholders. The damages each have suffered are different, but both very real.

First, people who have bought or leased Volkswagen diesel automobiles after having been assured that the cars were environmentally safe – even paying extra money for the “clean” feature – did not get what they had been promised or what they had paid for. Global Justice Network attorneys at US law firms Keller Rohrback and Lieff, Cabraser, Heimann & Bernstein have already filed class action law suits on behalf of distressed Americans who have purchased or leased Volkswagen diesel cars in the United States.

Because the problem of deceptive diesel emissions is not unique to the United States, where a 500,000 of the total of 11 million affected vehicles are located, the problem for consumers is comparatively greater in other countries. Global Justice Network attorneys are now taking steps in other countries to protect the rights of harmed individuals. Should you have purchased or leased a diesel car manufactured between the years 2009 and 2015 of the type Jetta, Beetle, Golf, Passat or Audi A3, we invite you to contact us for an initial, no obligation, no cost, legal evaluation. Please provide as much information as possible via our contact form.

Secondly, investors who have purchased shares of stock in one of the Volkswagen companies relying upon the information that had been made public about the products the companies manufacture and sell have suffered financial losses as the price per share has dropped in response to the market shattering news of recalls, fixes, loss of trust in the company and its products, criminal investigations and mounting legal fees. Investors, whether the shares were purchased via the US stock exchange or, more commonly, via the German DAX stock exchange, are entitled to compensation for their losses.

If you had purchased either common or preferred Volkswagen stock between June 6, 2008 and September 20, 2015, and held the stock on September 20, 2015, we invite you to contact us for an initial, no obligation, no cost, evaluation.
