Pursuing a Lawsuit Against German Automobile Giant Volkswagen

VolkswagenBy Michael R. Jackson, Shareholder

Volkswagen and Audi owners the world over are presently weighing on an individual basis whether to pursue a lawsuit against German Automobile Giant Volkswagen.  In giving consideration to such an option, it is critical to locate a law firm with the experience, knowledge, and wherewithal to take on such a corporate powerhouse. The Jackson Law Firm has firm roots in Germany, inasmuch as the majority of its clients come from Germany and are pursuing legal recourse in the United States. However, the law firm also represents individuals against German entities in the U.S. legal system, and, because of its German-speaking attorneys and staff, this firm can more comprehensively represent the interests of those claimants seeking compensation against a German corporation. That is particularly so with respect to the international scandal that has surrounded the German auto giant Volkswagen. Often critical pieces of evidence are found within key documents, and, in a case such as this, those documents are likely to be in German. There exists a distinct advantage when your attorney speaks the same language as what is utilized in key evidence in your case and/or speaks the same language as your opponent.

Accounts reflect that 11 Million vehicles are affected in the Volkswagen Emission Scandal. Already the CEO of the company, Martin Winterkorn, stepped down from his post last week amidst the scandal. The new Volkswagen CEO, Matthias Müller, indicated that the owners of affected vehicles will be notified in writing regarding the need to bring in their vehicles for “service measures” without explaining, though, what those measures might be. In the USA it is believed that 482,000 vehicles alone were involved in this emission scandal.
