THREE PRIMARY REASONS TO JOIN THE CLAIM

Once you have provided the information about your affected vehicle and asked us to represent you, we will handle your case from start to finish at no cost to you unless we get a recovery on your behalf.

21 August 2020 - Diesel Emissions Justice Foundation (DEJF) started legal proceedings in The Netherlands against Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (‘FCA’), and related parties, for damages resulting from the use of manipulation software to falsify emissions testing, for their role in what is commonly referred to as Dieselgate. The action is filed under the Dutch Act on Collective Damages Claims (Wet Afwikkeling Massaschade in Collectieve Actie), known as WAMCA.
The DEJF has requested the Amsterdam district court to be appointed as the Lead Plaintiff in order to lead the proceedings against FCA et al. on behalf of all affected Dutch and European parties, as described in the writ of summons. This writ (in Dutch) can be accessed on the Foundation’s website: https://www.emissionsjustice.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/08/Geanonimiseerde-dagvaarding-DEJF74.pdf
The Diesel Emissions Justice Foundation is a Dutch non-profit organisation. Its mission is to protect the interests of drivers impacted by the Dieselgate scandal and, by doing so, to facilitate access to justice for affected car owners. This new litigation is the third collective initiative by the DEJF to seek compensation for aggrieved consumers, following the Volkswagen litigation that the Foundation initiated in March 2020, and the Daimler litigation brought in June 2020.
