Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know your offer is legitimate?
First you can refer to the Press Release of the European Commission. It states clearly under the section Action for damages, that:
Any person or firm affected by anti-competitive behaviour as described in this case may bring the matter before the courts of the Member States and seek damages. The case law of the Court and Council Regulation 1/2003 both confirm that in cases before national courts, a Commission decision constitutes binding proof that the behaviour took place and was illegal. Even though the Commission has fined the companies concerned, damages may be awarded without being reduced on account of the Commission fine.European Commission
Additionally, we already have court decisions backing up our approach in Germany.
Finally, we offer to pay you within 30 days if you decide so.
Is it too late to act?
No – at least not through the German Courts. But time is running out so make sure you get your claim in as soon as possible. It won’t cost you anything, and there is no risk to you, you only stand to gain.
When do I receive my money?
If you have chosen our 30-day-scheme, then you receive your money within 30 days. However, if you have chosen to maximize your claim, we can not be certain when the claims will be paid out. Given the large number of cases and the workload of the courts, the process could take several more years.
How much do I get?
No one can say for certain. A great development is that Munich Regional Court has appointed the two leading experts who will determine the amount of damage for the claims we represent. To understand the complexity of the process, the expert team has been working on the report since 2019.
The best way to get an estimate is to complete our simple form.
How does it work?
Simple – a litigation funding company offers you this risk-free opportunity to get your money back.
“Litigation funding” means we undertake all the costs and the risks in exchange for a certain share of the future refunded amount. You can also opt to receive an agreed amount within 30 days and we take over your case. With this option, you get to keep the money even if the case was unsuccessful.
Is the process really free?
Yes – if no financial success is achieved, you will not have to bear any costs or risks. In the case of success, we will receive a certain portion of the money as previously agreed upon in a written litigation funding agreement.
What are the advantages of hiring TruckRefunds.com to get my claims enforced?
Many – there is no risk to you and you do not have to pay any upfront costs. The whole process is coordinated by our extensive professional team. We have a tried and tested approach and economies of scale on our side. No claim is too big for our team to process.
Am I eligible?
Yes – if your business is located in the EU, EEU, UK or Switzerland and bought, leased or rented new trucks made by Mercedes, Iveco, DAF, MAN, Renault, Scania or Volvo between 1998 and 2016, you are entitled to claim a refund.
I have already sold my vehicle. Can I still claim damages?
Yes – if you have sold your vehicle, you are still entitled to compensation.
What documentation do I need to provide?
Very little – all we require is proof of purchase, a leasing contract or a rental contract for each vehicle.
Is an out-of-court settlement expected?
Probably – however we will strive to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients. Whether that is an out-of-court settlement or full litigation.
How much time will I have to spend in the preparation for the proceedings?
None – once you have submitted the required documents, almost no more effort is needed from you. It is our responsibility to handle everything. You will not have to personally participate in any proceedings.
Why can’t I simply turn to the respective truck manufacturer and demand damages myself?
You can – however, the results will probably not satisfy you. The past has often shown that corporations vigorously deny compensation claims out of hand, no matter how valid they may be. Companies are taking advantage of the deterrent effect of a complex lawsuit. They expect the strict refusal to pay will work in their favour if only a fraction of the claimants eventually go to court.
Is this going to harm my relationship with the truck dealer?
Absolutely not – we only litigate with the truck manufacturers in court; if you are a Truck Cartel victim, your relationship with your dealer remains safe.
