Paul Walker's Daughter Settles with Porsche Over Actor's Death

Paul Walker's Daughter Settles with Porsche Over Actor's Death

Paul Walker died in November 2013 and, almost five years later, his now 18-year-old daughter just reached a settlement with Porsche.

In 2015, Meadow Walker filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche. However, Meadow's lawsuit claimed that her father and Roger may have only been driving between 63 and 71 miles per hour before the crash.

United States media reports said that the suit alleged that Porsche knew the Carrera GT had a history of instability but failed to add a control system to correct the problem. They also alleged that Walker knew the vehicle he was getting in, and knew the risks of riding at high speeds. According to ABC News story, Porsche originally alleged that Paul Walker "knowingly and voluntarily assumed all risk, perils and danger in respect to the use of the subject 2005 Carrera GT". Last year, Meadow was awarded $10.1 million on behalf of Roger's estate. A separate lawsuit filed by the actor's father and executor, Paul William Walker III, was settled on an undisclosed date, TheBlast added. ABC News reports according to the lawsuit, Paul Walker unable to get out of the vehicle due to the seat belt design and was alive for a full minute and 20 seconds after the collision, until the auto "erupted into flames" and he passed.

See how one of Walker's former Fast & Furious co-stars tributed him in the BET Breaks video above. "Through his estate, Mr. Rodas, the driver of the auto, took partial responsibility for the crash".

Meadow's lawyer Jeff Milam told ABC News at the time the vehicle was "dangerous".

Now 18, the younger Walker reached a settlement with Porsche on October 16, according to documents obtained by the Blast.

The Times has reached out to Meadow Walker's attorney for confirmation that a settlement was reached.
