Paul Walker’s 18-year-old daughter, Meadow, settled her wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche late last month following the death of her father.
In 2013, Paul passed away along with his friend Roger Rodas when the car they were driving at over 100 mph crashed and immediately burst into flames. The coroner’s report stated: “The vehicle then struck a sidewalk and the driver’s side struck a tree and then a light post. The force of these collisions caused the vehicle to spin 180 degrees and it continued to travel in an easterly direction. The passenger side of the vehicle then struck a tree and it then burst into flames.” According to The Guardian, the report also stated that the Porsche was “totaled with major traffic collision damage all around and it appeared that the vehicle was almost split in half.”
In September 2015 Meadow sued the car company and claimed that her father would have survived the attack had it not been for manufacturing issues on Porsche’s end, which would have included a faulty seat belt. Us Magazine reported in 2015 that Meadow sued Porsche and her lawyer, Jeff Milam, stated that, the seatbelt “snapped Walker’s torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis.” The suit also claimed that the fire started 20 seconds after the crash and had the belt been working, Paul could have escaped.
Milam called the Porsche “a dangerous car” and alleged that the car had a history of issues that Porsche was aware of. It was also reported that he added the car “doesn’t belong on the street. And we shouldn’t be without Paul Walker or his friend, Roger Rodas.”
