Deceived Diesel Volkswagen Owners have Legal Options

Strauss Troy to Help Consumers File Individual Lawsuits

CINCINNATI, OH--(Marketwired - October 08, 2015) - Strauss Troy, a leading litigation firm, announced today that it has filed individual lawsuits in both Ohio and Kentucky against Volkswagen [VOWe3.DE] alleging that the automotive manufacturer intentionally installed software on diesel vehicles designed to cheat emissions tests. The firm seeks additional affected VW owners for possible lawsuits and financial relief.

More than 11 million VW diesel automobiles manufactured between 2009 and 2015 have been recalled, including nearly half a million in the U.S. The recalled diesel vehicles include the Golf, Passat, Jetta and Beetle. Some Audi A3 diesel automobiles have also been recalled.

"Volkswagen set up the pollution control 'Defeat Devices' on these vehicles which only worked during emissions testing," explained Strauss Troy Attorney Ron Parry. "Volkswagen did this to deceive federal and state regulators and owners into believing that these diesel vehicles had adequate pollution control devices, when in fact these 'Clean Diesels,' weren't really clean at all."

"Your vehicle's corrected pollution control equipment will operate properly after the service recall is performed. This service, however, will affect your vehicle's performance. Both the acceleration and the miles per gallon will likely degrade and your future maintenance costs may increase. The value of your VW diesel has also dropped as a result of VW's deceitful actions," Parry explained.

Strauss Troy believes that VW owners would be better served by filing individual lawsuits rather than waiting to see what, if anything, happens with the hundreds of class-action suits which may take years to resolve.

There are benefits to an individual lawsuit. Deceived VW owners can maintain individual control over the manner in which their lawsuits are handled and resolved. This may be far better than waiting to hear from a class action attorney, who may be representing tens of thousands of car owners, and who may have no contact with any individual VW owners until after the case is already settled.

Strauss Troy has already filed individual cases for VW diesel owners in Kentucky and Ohio and is prepared to act quickly to evaluate your case. There is no legal cost to consumers if the firm is unable to successfully recover a loss. Any attorney's fees are contingent and will be a percentage of the recovered funds.

Strauss Troy is offering free consultations for VW owners seeking legal help. VW owners can call 513-621-2120 or submit a form from the Strauss Troy website.
