Experienced experts will ensure your entitlement to any compensation for damages against
the truck cartel
We will get your money back – without any cost risk
For years companies and customers have been overcharged for their purchase, lease or long-term rent of trucks because of price agreements between truck manufacturers. 2011 MAN informed the European Commission as a crown witness, thus exposing one of the largest cartels in the European Union.
Due to their manipulation of prices from 1997 to 2011, the manufacturers Daimler, Volvo/Renault, Iveco and DAF have already been fined with penalties up to billions. MAN avoided a fine due to the leniency notice. The manufacturer Scania remains under investigation.
If you purchased, leased or rented a truck cab for a long-term period between 1997 and 2011, you are entitled to a compensation of the purchase price. Claim partner can show you how: First we will determine your potential claims with you by examining all relevant purchases/leasing cases and by preparing a competition economic expert report for each truck.
In a next step we will - first out-of-court - claim partial reimbursement of the purchase price depending on the outcome of the expert report. If the other party will not accept any extrajudicial compromise we will continue to assert your claim in court – including all costs.Claim partner works exclusively on a commission basis, which means that there will be no cost risk for you.
