Hard to believe it's been nearly four years since the tragic crash.
Almost four years after his tragic death, the daughter of Paul Walker has settled her wrongful death lawsuit with Porsche. Eighteen-year-old Meadow Walker and Porsche reached the settlement on October 16, according to The Blast, though the terms are to remain confidential. Both Walker and Porsche have also requested for the wrongful death case to be dismissed. The documents obtained by The Blast also show that Paul Walker’s father settled a separate suit against Porsche.
Meadow Walker first sued Porsche in 2015 after it was discovered that her father did in fact survive the crash as a passenger in the Porsche Carrera GT. His friend, business partner and financial advisor, Roger Rodas, was behind the wheel. Rhodes was killed instantly when the car veered off the road and smashed into a poll at over 80 mph, then went up in flames. In the suit against Porsche, Walker claimed the seatbelt “snapped (her father’s) torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis.” In short, he was burned alive, though it’ll forever remain unknown whether or not he was conscious.
The suit also claims the Porsche Carrera GT itself was not stable and had a history of “instability and control issues.” Meadow Walker settled with the Rodas’ estate for $10.1 million in 2016. Paul Walker and Roger Rodas were killed on November 30, 2013.
