Porsche Responds To Paul Walker’s Daughter’s Lawsuit, Says Actor Was To Blame

Porsche has reportedly fired back at Meadow Walker’s lawsuit , which claimed her father was killed due to design flaws with the car he was in.
According to TMZ,the luxury car giant  says the actor’s death was his own fault, with Paul being a “knowledgeable and sophisticated user of the 2005 Carrera GT”,”
Porsche also say he should not have allowed or participated in a high-speed drive under the conditions that existed.
Walker’s daughter ,Meadow claims in her lawsuit his actual speed was between 63 and 71 mph, not  80 to 93 miles per hour, as law enforcement claims.
Meadow also claimed the 2005 Carrera GT Paul was travelling in at the time “lacked safety features… that could have prevented the accident or, at a minimum, allowed Paul Walker to survive the crash.”
Meadow believed Paul was still alive when the car caught fire and a “defective” seat belt prevented him from escaping after the safety feature “snapped Walker’s torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis” and leaving him trapped.
Porsche disputes that the design was defective, reportedly saying “the subject 2005 Carrera GT was abused and altered”. They added that the car was “misused and improperly maintained.”

Paul Walker’s Daughter Sues Porsche Over Father’s Wrongful Death

Paul Walker’s 16-year-old daughter, Meadow Walker, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche following her dad’s Nov. 30, 2013, death in Valencia, Calif. According to the lawsuit, obtained by Us Weekly, Meadow’s lawyers claim that Paul died after being trapped inside the 2005 Carrera GT he was riding in alongside friend Roger Rodas.

“It is with great reluctance that Meadow Walker has authorized the filing of this lawsuit on her own behalf and as heir to Paul Walker’s estate,” her attorney, Jeff Milam, said in a statement to Us.

According to the documents, Walker’s seat belt “snapped Walker’s torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis,” and trapping him in the passenger seat after the car crashed and broke apart. The lawsuit notes that the fire didn’t erupt for a minute and 20 seconds until after the crash, and that Paul was still alive inside the vehicle. “Paul Walker breathed soot into his trachea while the Porsche Carrera GT burned,” the suit alleges.
