Paul Walker’s Daughter Meadow Files Wrongful Death Suit Against Porsche
Meadow Walker, Paul Walker‘s surviving 16-year-old daughter, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche, the maker of the car he was in when he died nearly two years ago.
Meadow Walker Filing Lawsuit
Meadow and her lawyers allege that the Porsche Carrera GT that Walker was traveling in with close pal Roger Rodas “lacked safety features… that could have prevented the accident or, at a minimum, allowed Paul Walker to survive the crash,” according to E! News, which obtained the court documents.
The suit claims that Porsche knew that the Carrera Paul was riding in “had a history of instability and control issues,” but “failed to install its electronic stability control system, which is specifically designed to protect against the swerving actions inherent in hyper-sensitive vehicles of this type.”
The suit further claims that Rodas could have been only been going between 63 and 71 mph when it lost control, as apposed to the 80 to 93 mph reported by law enforcement.
Finally, the suit suggests that the Carrera had a defective seatbelt that failed to release when Walker tried to leave the vehicle before it was engulfed in flames.
“The bottom line is that the Porsche Carrera GT is a dangerous car,” Meadow’s lawyer Jeff Milam said in a statement to E!. “It doesn’t belong on the street. And we shouldn’t be without Paul Walker or his friend, Roger Rodas.”
