The lawyers at Heygood, Orr & Pearson have represented thousands of vehicle owners across the United States in a number of automotive litigation cases over the past several years.
Diesel Emissions Litigation
One of our partners, Michael Heygood, was appointed to the federal Plaintiffs’ Steering Committee that helped secure a class action settlement of over $10 billion for Volkswagen, Audi, and Porsche vehicle owners as part of the federal Volkswagen “Dieselgate” litigation. These lawsuits involved allegations that Volkswagen installed “defeat devices” on its “clean diesel” vehicles in order to evade federal emissions standards.
Our firm also represented approximately 2,000 VW, Audi, and Porsche “Clean” diesel vehicle owners who chose to opt-out of the nationwide Dieselgate settlement and have their cases tried individually.
Our law firm filed a lawsuit against Fiat Chrysler and its parts suppliers on behalf of owners of Dodge RAM and Jeep Grand Cherokee EcoDiesel trucks whose vehicles were fraudulently equipped with emissions cheating software.
Heygood, Orr & Pearson was also involved in the litigation involving similar emissions cheating claims against Mercedes Benz involving its BlueTEC “clean diesel” vehicles.
Current Automotive Litigation Cases
In addition to the Chevy Bolt litigation against General Motors, Heygood, Orr & Pearson is currently involved in the General Motors Duramax litigation. These lawsuits involve allegations that GM sold hundreds of thousands of GMC and Chevrolet diesel trucks that are incompatible with U.S. diesel fuels, causing damage to the fuel system and engines of these vehicles that can lead to total engine failure.
Our law firm is also currently involved in the Ford DPS6 transmission litigation, which accuses Ford of hiding defects in some Ford Fiesta, Focus, and other vehicles with defective DPS6 clutch or Powershift transmission, which can lead to transmission or engine failure.
