Car Company Says Anton Yelchin Was Responsible for His Death in New Legal Papers

Valencia CJD has responded to the wrongful death suit filed by Anton Yelchin‘s parents against the company, Jeep manufacturer FCA US and others.

Anton died at the age of 27 when his car rolled down his drive way and pinned him to a gate.

“Defendant alleges the injuries and damages, if any, or which the plaintiffs complain were caused and/or contributed to by the negligence of plaintiffs’ decedent which bars any recovery herein or the alleged damages of plaintiffs, in any, are reduced according to law,” the countersuit filed read (via The Wrap).

“Defendant alleges the damages allegedly sustained by plaintiffs were the proximate result of plaintiffs’, decedentt’s or other’s misuse, misapplication or damage of the product or modification, repair and/or maintenance of the product involved which failed to conform with defendant’s specifications,” the papers continued.

    But the car had a defect which had a roll away issue. How was this his fault? He found found dead pinned against the car and gate with the car in neutral!

    He was very handsome too. Such a loss.

    Sad as it is, he didn’t take the car in when it was recalled by the manufacturer.

    The vehicle had a recall alert associated with that exact defect, which Anton failed to comply with. It is VERY sad, but not the manufacturer’s fault in terms of the law. JJ didn’t bother to post that part, for some reason.

    He never got the recall notice according to his parents lawyer. They sent him the notice 1 week after he died.

    he would still be alive if he had only put the emergency brakes on. something that would have only taken one second to do.

    so so sorry that he did not do it. such a shame. tears, tears, tears that his parents will never stop shedding.

    If that’s true and they can prove it, then they should win the lawsuit.

    Yes he should have used a car brake but he didn’t( like many other people). Either way, it wasn’t his fault. A car should not switch out of gear and start rolling. Very sad for the parents. Their only child.

  • Ariana-Kaelita

    I hope so it.. It won’t bring their son back but they should get some justice.

    “Anton Yelchin received recall notice for jeep 7 days after death” is the title of this page on Just Jared.

    This is nothing but the car manufactures fault, and the fact that they’re putting blame on Anton is disgusting. Some companies have no shame. I hope they get their deserve.

    AS I SAID ALREADY: if that can be proved, then his parents should win the lawsuit. Stop repeating the same fucking words.

  • Dee
