At Thompson’s we would like to reassure all our clients that as far as possible we are operating as normal. The health and safety of our staff and clients is our primary concern during this outbreak and as such we are reviewing the situation on a regular basis and will be adapting our working practices following government guidelines. However, we have had to make some minor changes to how we are doing things.

Following Government guidelines, we have temporarily closed all of our offices and our staff are now all working from home using secure technologies to ensure they are able to continue to progress with existing and new cases as normal. All face to face meetings have been cancelled, however we are continuing to hold these meetings via phone and video calls. All the team are contactable on their direct dial numbers and email should you need to speak with your solicitor, please do not hesitate to talk to us about anything during this time.

We know these are uncertain and unsettling times for many of our clients, and the wider population, and things might look a little different for the foreseeable future. But our focus remains on our dedication, knowledge and strength that we provide to all our clients. We will continue to provide updates over the coming days and weeks in accordance with official guidelines and to keep everyone informed of the situation.

As always, for any concerns, advice and updates on your case; Talk to Thompsons.

Mercedes Claim Registration Form

Please note you can only claim if your vehicle was purchased between 2007 and 2020.


It has come to light that many Mercedes diesel vehicles were fitted with cheat devices to defeat emissions tests. If you owned, leased, or financed a vehicle which was affected, you could be eligible to join our mass litigation where you could claim thousands in compensation.

Mercedes installed many of their cars and vans with software which allowed these vehicles to display lower emissions readings than were accurate when undergoing testing. This means that these cars and vans were causing more pollution than acceptable under European regulations and misleading consumers of their true emissions figures.

In 2017 The German Federal Motor Transport Authority confirmed these devices had been installed which led to Daimler being fined £776 million. Mercedes have now been ordered to recall over 90,000 affected vehicles in the UK.

Similar cases have been brought forward in Northern America, and Thompsons will be raising a court action in 2023 for Scottish motorists who have unknowingly bought, leased, or financed an affected car or van.



Why Thompsons Scotland?

Thompsons are one of Scotland’s leading law firms and have been instrumental in the VW Emissions Scandal, launching what will be the largest class action in Scottish legal history, acting on behalf of the thousands of Scottish Motorists affected.  With the knowledge and expertise in this area we have accumulated through this mass litigation, we are now pursuing this similar action against Mercedes with confidence.  We firmly believe that Mercedes mislead consumers by offering these vehicles with false emissions figures by using their cheat software during testing.

Is my vehicle eligible?

You may be able to join our legal action if your Mercedes vehicle: 

  • Was manufactured between 2007 and 2020
  • Was bought outright, leased or financed regardless of being new or second hand

Talk to Thompsons today on 0800 0891 331 if your car or van meets the above criteria to register your details.
