Meadow Walker, the daughter of famous actor Paul Walker, has been awarded a gargantuan $10.1 million for her father’s death from a car crash in November 2013.
The 17-yr-old will be given $7 million from the settlement with $3million going to Attorney Jeff Milam over the ‘Fast & Furious’ star’s death in November 2013 when the Porsche Carrera GT himself and Roger Rodas were driving in crashed and burst into flames in Los Angeles.
The court found that Rodas, who was driving the porsche that the two men were in, was “partly to blame” for the accident and as a result Meadow Walker was awarded the huge sum.
It’s not known if the funds will be taken from Rodas’ estate, or his insurance company.
The teenager has also filed a separate case against the car manufacturer Porsche.
Her Attorney Milam, said: “The issues in the cases are very different. The federal case was filed on behalf of Roger Rodas, who was the driver of the Porsche Carrera GT and was killed instantly upon impact.
Meadow’s father, Paul Walker, was a passenger in the car. He survived the crash but was trapped and burned to death because of the vehicle’s defects.
Meadow will continue to fight to hold Porsche accountable for selling a defective product that kills.”
The settlement comes as a court rejected Rodas’ widow, Kristine Rodas’ wrongful death lawsuit, in which she claimed the car lacked crucial safety features that would have prevented the death of the two men
