Paul Walker's Daughter Won A $10.1 Settlement But Not From Porsche

Lawsuit

Someone had to pay something.

Paul Walker’s now 17-year-old daughter, Meadow, may have lost a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche last week (which she’s appealing), but she apparently reached a settlement with another party - the estate of Roger Rodas, the man at the wheel of the Carrera GT on that terrible day two-and-a-half years ago. According to Meadow Walker’s attorney, a $10.1 million settlement was actually reached back in November 2014. TMZ was the first to uncover this. Why did it go unnoticed until now?

Because the suit was filed under "Meadow W." Walker’s attorney stated that Rodas was only partially responsible for the crash, the main culprit being the car itself. Rodas drove the Carrera GT at nearly 93 mph when he lost control and spun into trees and a utility pole in Los Angeles in November 2013. The Rodas estate settlement, according to the attorney, covers a "fraction of what her father would have earned as an international movie star had his life not been tragically cut short." Meadow Walker’s settlement, for now, has been placed in a trust. It's also unclear as to who exactly paid out the $10.1 million - Rodas' estate itself or his insurance company.
