Paul Walker's daughter settles lawsuit

Saturday, October 28, 2017

Paul Walker's daughter Meadow launched the wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche in 2015.

Nearly four years after the shocking sudden death of Fast and Furious actor Paul Walker, the late star's daughter has settled a wrongful death lawsuit with Porsche.

Walker died in November 2013 at the age of 40 in a car accident alongside his friend, Roger Rodas, who was driving the Porsche Carrera GT. Rodas lost control of the sports vehicle as they were driving in Santa Clarita, California.

Law enforcement ruled that the car was travelling at nearly 90 mph to have lost control, but the lawsuit alleged that it might have been going at as little as 63 mph because of inherent safety flaws. It also claimed that a "defective" seat belt may have prevented Walker from escaping the car before it burst into flames, killing him.

"The bottom line is that the Porsche Carrera GT is a dangerous car," said Jeff Milam, the lawyer for Walker's teenage daughter Meadow, back in 2015. "It doesn't belong on the street. And we shouldn't be without Paul Walker or his friend, Roger Rodas."

Now, in court documents obtained by The Blast on Wednesday (October 25th), it has been confirmed that a settlement has in fact been reached between Porsche and Walker's daughter, though the details and exact amounts are confidential.
