Anton Yelchin's parents take action.

On Tuesday, Anton Yelchin's parents, Viktor and Irina, officially filed their lawsuit seeking punitive damages for the wrongful death of their son.

"Anton Yelchin was crushed and lingered alive for some time, trapped and suffocating until his death."

In today's emotional press conference, Viktor and Irina expressed their grief over their loss, with the 27-year-old's dad sharing through tears:

"In spite of our grief we decided to come here to prevent other families for the same tragedy. Anton was our only son and he was a remarkable human being very modest, very simple, very honest, generous, loving. It is wrong, it is against nature when the parents bury their own child."

Anton Yelchin's Parents To File Wrongful Death Lawsuit After Tragic Jeep Accident

Anton Yelchin's parents are seeking action.

We can't imagine what Anton Yelchin's parents have been going through since the death of their son back in June.

The Star Trek Beyond actor passed away when his 2015 Jeep Cherokee rolled backwards, leaving him pinned against his security gate. In the aftermath of his death, it was revealed the specific model was part of a voluntary recall because of a flaw with the e-stick which caused drivers to unintentionally leave their cars in neutral instead of parked.

A class action suit was then filed against Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the company which owns Jeep.

Well on Monday, TMZ reported the 27-year-old's parents, Irina and Viktor Yelchin, have hired a lawyer and are planning to file a lawsuit against the corporation for punitive damages in "the wrongful death of their son due to significant defects."

They're also looking to sue ZF North America, which manufactured the vehicle, and AutoNation, where Anton seemingly bought his car from.

We'll keep you update with any news of a forthcoming suit.
