July 17, 2021

July 11, 2021 — A Nissan LEAF electromagnetic radiation lawsuit has been filed by a Georgia man who sued the automaker “for permanently damaging his health and for destroying his family and career, not to exceed $10 million.”

The 2015 Nissan LEAF customer who filed the lawsuit alleges the car caused him serious health problems from prolonged driving while sitting on a giant battery that allegedly emits large amounts of low-frequency electromagnetic field (EMF) radiation.

The plaintiff claims the LEAF radiation is “way above” safe levels of 2 mG (milligauss) or less.

According to the radiation lawsuit, the 2015 Nissan LEAF EMF measurements are as follows:

  • Driver’s floor — up to 9.2 mG, Top of the seat — up to 5.3 mG
  • Passenger floor — up to 13.1 mG, Top of the seat — up to 4.9 mG
  • Back row floor — up to 31.3 mG, Top of the seat — up to 4.5 mG
  • Back row/top of the elevated floor panel at the center of the vehicle — up to 12.6 mG

The Nissan LEAF electromagnetic radiation lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia: Josef Tater, v. Nissan North America, Inc. In addition to seeking up to $10 million, the plaintiff says Nissan should pay up to $990 million for gross negligence.

“Towards the end of January 2017, the plaintiff had a difficult time to distinguish what was real and what was not, and as a result was terminated from his job. On January 25th, the Plaintiff was hospitalized with inability to hear and speak. Going forward, the Plaintiff kept suffering physical and mental symptoms and his marriage fell apart as his wife filed for divorce on April 15th, 2017.” — Nissan LEAF radiation lawsuit
