It’s been an arduous eight years since a young man named Chris Nesbitt died in a car crash.
A year later, he’s still waiting for the trial to begin and is still facing a $2.5 million civil lawsuit.
The lawsuit says that the polyethylenisiloxane-coating of polystyrene-based car seats “will cause the polystyene to be permanently damaged or lose its strength, which will result in a permanent defect in the polyamide coating, resulting in the loss of safety features, such as crash avoidance and collision avoidance systems.”
The suit also says that because of the chemical damage caused by the polyamides, “the vehicle will be unsafe for the occupants to operate in.”
This is an issue that many people have been concerned about since the first vehicle crash deaths in 2013, but many are still concerned that it will happen again.
Many are also concerned that the courts are too slow in coming to an agreement on the case.
While the American Association of the Medical Directors has urged the court to hold hearings to get a resolution to the polyimide issue, there’s been no action.
Nesbitch’s parents, Jim and Julie, were among those who took to the internet to express their frustration.
“If the car is unsafe to operate, and the people in the car are not safe, and they cannot avoid an accident because of it, that is not going to help Chris Nedert,” Jim Nesbatitt told ABC News.
After learning that his son’s car was still sitting on a curb, Nesbaits parents launched a crowdfunding campaign to raise $25,000 for a jury trial.
It’s a small sum, but it is a significant amount of money to raise.
That $25000 is what has enabled Nesbeits parents to get the trial started, and that’s why it’s important that people like Jim Nescbats raise as much money as they can.
“I want to see that it’s not just a one-time thing,” Nesbin said.
“I want the car to be the vehicle, and I want the court, as well.”
Nescbatts lawyers hope that a trial will provide more information about the polyacrylonitrile-butadiene-dichloride (PAH-DC) polyimides in the cars, and more evidence of the safety of these products.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the PAH-DDC polyisoprene is an environmentally friendly material that is “designed to be easily cleaned and recycled,” and it’s also a safe material for the environment.
PAH, however, is a compound that is toxic to people’s skin, and it is often added to vehicle seats in an attempt to prevent them from being punctured during a crash.
While there is a growing awareness of the toxic effects of PAH in the industry, the lawsuit claims that the chemical has been found in nearly every polyethylenes-based polypropylene-based vehicle seat on the market.
Some of the materials found in PAH, including polyisosamid, are known to be associated with lung cancer.
And yet, the Nescbatsts say that polyethylensils that have been in use for more than a decade are the only materials in their son’s family car seat that have never been associated with any known health risks.
If you have a child in your car, you need to know that the seat that your child rides in is safe, Jim Nespitsch said.
What can people do?
Nesbin is still hopeful that a jury will rule in his sons favor, and is hoping that the American Academy of Pediatrics and other car manufacturers will do the same.
But that won’t happen overnight.
In the meantime, the family wants the lawsuit to be resolved quickly, and with the help of a judge.
“This case is just one more thing that needs to be done,” Nescbits parents said.
