Why use myright?
Many customers are confused by the VW scandal. Very few know their rights, much less assert them.
myright stands on the side of those who shy away from the enforcement of their own legal action. myright puts an end to obscure lawyer bills, nerve-wracking processes and sprawling paperwork. And: myright bears all legal risks for you. If you don’t receive any compensation, you don’t pay any fees. Guaranteed!
myright works with the law firm of Michael Hausfeld. Michael Hausfeld has, amongst other cases, fought for compensation for Nazi forced labourers, and victims of the Exxon Valdez oil disaster. Hausfeld’s latest case: The agreement with VW in the US for thousands of motorists.

myright works exclusively with Hausfeld. Due to the implementation of a „defeat-mechanism“ (exhaust-manipulation software) in vehicles within the United States, Hausfeld LLP has filed several class action lawsuits there against Volkswagen in October, 2015. Besides consumers, Hausfeld LLP also represents the Center for Auto Safety (CAS), a major non-governmental organisation, whose purpose is the representation of consumers in connection with automotive matters. Moreover, Hausfeld LLP brought actions against Volkswagen for breaches of the US Clean Air Act (Clean Air Act) in relation to government regulations. The various US actions against Volkswagen were brought before Judge Charles R. Breyer of the United States District Court for the Northern District of California in San Francisco.
In related proceedings, the court usually appoints a group of lawyers to conduct the legal dispute over a so-called Plaintiffs‘ Steering Committee (PSC). Michael Hausfeld, Chairman of Hausfeld LLP, was appointed member of the Volkswagen PSC by Judge Breyer on 21 January 2016. This PSC includes a total of 21 lawyers who were appointed to enforce the claims against Volkswagen on behalf of all consumers in the US. The PSC has filed an amended joint action for; deception, false advertising and breach of US consumer protection laws, in particular the RICO Federal Act (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act) to combat organised crime, the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and of state laws related to ensuring consumer protection, deceptive competitive behaviour and fraudulent concealment. Since January, the PSC is working intensively with the insight of VW documents and has reviewed millions of documents. The PSC is working hard to bring about a solution to the exhaust scandal for US consumers.
