HAVE YOU BEEN CAUGHT IN THE VOLKSWAGEN FRAUD?
If you are the owner of a Volkswagen TDI Diesel model years 2009-2015 you likely have a vehicle whose diesel emissions are greater than allowed by the EPA and you may have a claim against Volkswagen for the reduced value of your vehicle.
Volkswagen marketed their TDI diesel vehicles as “clean diesel” vehicles that were good for the environment. Little did consumers know that Volkswagen, the largest automobile manufacturer in the World, cooked the books and intentionally manipulated emissions data as part of the marketing ploy. Volkswagen fooled the regulators and the consumers with intentionally misleading data. All done in the hopes that environmentally conscious Americans would buy their vehicles and the VW share of the US market would grow. And oh how did they.
Volkswagen sold tens of millions of pollution spouting diesel vehicles in the US over the 6 year time frame and increased market share on the backs of defrauded Americans. Sure VW will now offer a fix for vehicles to get them back into compliance with the emissions regulations, but who wants to drive a VW now. The intentional nature of the fraud and the type of fraud (emissions) may have forever impaired the value of your vehicle. Jekel-Doolittle is here to take on VW and to pursue claims for consumers who were subject to the fraud. If you are an owner of the following 2009-2015 VW models you may be entitled to compensation:
- Beetle TDI
- Golf TDI
- Golf Sportswagen TDI
- Jetta TDI
- Passat TDI
SOUTH CAROLINA DEALERS ACT FILED
Friday September 25, 2015 the law firms of Jekel-Doolittle, LLC and Lewis Babcock & Griffin each filed a state court claims for South Carolina owners and purchasers of the subject Volkswagens under the South Carolina Dealer Act. They are the Riney and Glowacki actions filed in Charleston County. The firms intend to pursue the claims together in state court as part of their effort to more efficiently secure justice for South Carolina purchasers, owners, and lessees of the Volkswagen vehicles at issue. The Dealer Act prohibits actions in “bad faith” by automobile dealers and distributors among its other provisions at issue in the cases. The Act allows for plaintiffs to recover two times actual damages as well as attorneys’ fees and costs should the action be successful. Additionally, a jury can award three times actual damages as punitive damages if a jury finds that a defendant acted maliciously. The Act also allows for the current actions to be brought “for the benefit of the whole” whereby other South Carolina purchasers, owners, and/or lessees of the subject Volkswagen vehicles may recover damages. Unlike other lawsuits filed across the country, these lawsuits are not class actions; rather, they seek to take advantage of the simpler and more efficient mechanism of the South Carolina Dealers Act providing that the lawsuits may be prosecuted for the benefit of the whole.

VOLKSWAGEN VEHICLES THAT WERE PART OF THE FRAUD
I will forever be thankful to Fritz. He fights for what is right and I am so glad our paths crossed...
Excellent, Knowledgeable Attorney
Mr. Jekel represented my husband and me in an insurance claim pertaining to a fire in a rental property and got a settlement that we were very pleased with. Without the services of Mr. Jekel, the insurance company would never have compensated us for what was really owed for the extensive damages. We have found Mr. Jekel to be easily approached, unlike other attorneys we have dealt with. He personally takes his calls, not being shielded by an assistant and promptly answers e-mails. We have found him to be a personable and extremely competent attorney and will always hire him to represent us in whatever we may face. Mr. Jekel seeks justice for his clients.
