It’s been almost two years since Paul Walker tragically passed away and now his 16-year-old daughter, Meadow, is seeking justice. Meadow is filing a wrongful death suit against Porsche, the manufacturer of the car he was in during the crash that took his life.
Paul was riding in a Porsche Carrera GT at the time of the accident. Meadow and her team of lawyers have suggested that the car, “lacked safety features…that could have prevented the accident or, at a minimum, allowed Paul Walker to survive the crash.”
The lawsuit claims that Porsche knew that this specific model, “had a history of instability and control issues”, and yet they, “failed to install its electronic stability control system.”
The original reports claimed that the car was going between 80 and 93 MPH at the time of the crash, but the lawsuit is claiming that it was closer to between 63 and 71 MPH.
The lawsuit also suggests that there’s a chance Paul could have escaped from the car before the fire had the seat belt been in proper working order.
Meadow’s lawyer, Jeff Milam, spoke to TMZ about the suit.
“The bottom line is that the Porsche Carrera GT is a dangerous car. It doesn’t belong on the street. And we shouldn’t be without Paul Walker or his friend, Roger Rodas.”
