Germany charged in violation of European law, a 4-5% higher toll payments for heavy goods vehicles (over 7.5 tonnes), as the toll payments included not only the costs for the maintenance of the roads, but also the cost of the traffic police.

Any company that has paid toll in Germany since 2005 to this date should be entitled to a refund for the overpayment of toll paid, according to the decision of the Court of Justice of the European Union from 28 October, 2020.

 

However, injured companies must be in a hurry to secure refund for the year 2018,
as the claim for 2018 will be time-barred at the end of 2021!

FAQ

Who is LitFin?

LitFin is a specialist in litigation finance with a special focus on competition law disputes. We are currently working with freight carriers to obtain compensation from truck manufacturers' cartels before a Dutch court, in Germany, we are helping investors recover lost investments in Wirecard and in Belgium we are ensuring that injured traders receive fair compensation for unjustified fees from MasterCard and Visa. Thanks to extensive international experience, we offer you a reliable and effective approach to obtaining compensation for you and your company.

Who can claim a toll refund?

All companies which paid tolls for trucks over 7.5 tonnes on German highways and roads between 2005 and 2017, and in particular between 2018 and 2021, can claim toll refunds.

Why do I have to act fast?

German law is strict on the issue of statute limitations and claims for 2018 are in danger of being time-barred at the end of 2021. The eligibility of claims for the years 2005 to 2017 are therefore still uncertain, but we will do everything we can to obtain them for you as well.

How much can I get back?

Simply put, you can get the difference between the amount of toll without the costs for the traffic police and the amount you actually paid for the toll. It is likely that you have paid 4 to 5 % more in tolls each year than you should. However, we cannot rule out that the amount of compensation may be higher.

What documents are needed?

To prove your claim, it is necessary to provide documents on toll payment and all data on toll payments. These documents need to be provided separately for each company that wants to claim. If you have any questions regarding the documents necessary for the lawsuit, do not hesitate to contact us.

How much will it cost you?

LitFin assumes all financial risks and legal costs in exchange for a share in the successful recovery of compensation. Even in the event of a failure of the lawsuit, which we do not assume, we bear all the costs and you do not have to pay anything.

If you have any further questions, please contact us and we will be glad to provide you with detailed information.
