Paul Walker’s daughter files wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche
LOS ANGELES – The family of a popular actor, who died in a car accident nearly two years ago, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche.
Actor Paul Walker died in a fiery crash in 2013 while attending a charity event.
However, the driver lost control of the car and it slammed into a tree.
The coroner’s report claimed the Porsche may have been going 100 miles-per-hour when they crashed.
It also says Walker suffered burns to 100 percent of his body.
Now, Walker’s only child is suing Porsche for the death of her father.
Meadow Walker, who was only 15-years-old at the time of her father’s passing, claims the carmaker failed to equip the vehicle with proper safety mechanisms.
It also says there weren’t precautions in place to prevent the flow of fuel following a crash, and says a defect in the car’s seat belt restraints trapped Walker in the car and broke his ribs and pelvis.
“Absent these defects in the Porsche Carrera GT, Paul Walker would be alive today,” the lawsuit says.
The lawsuit also claims that the Porsche wasn’t going 100 miles per hour, but rather was traveling between 63 and 71 miles per hour.
The lawsuit was filed by Meadow’s guardian.
