TMZ recently broke through with news that Paul Walker's daughter, Meadow Walker, has filed a lawsuit against Porsche for a wrongful death. Evidence has suggested that the crash ultimately killed him, but he was burned alive in the vehicle.
The seat belt in the vehicle broke Paul Walker's ribs and pelvis, trapping him in the passenger's seat. The car did not erupt for 1 minute and 20 seconds after impact, but Paul was helplessly trapped and burned to death.
Discrepencies against the speed of the car have been stated - the police claiming 80-93 mph, while the claim says the driver Roger Rodas was only going between 63 and 71 mph when the vehicle went out of control. The suit claims that the car does not contain a proper stabilizing system that would have prevented the car from getting out of control.
The lawyers claim the car in question, the Porsche Carrera GT has a history of stabilizing issues that Porsche is well aware of and that could have been solved with a stabilizing system, but Porsche failed to install in this model. They also go on about claims in other defects that did not prevent the car from going up in flames.
In general, they are claiming that the car is dangerous and does not belong on the road. The wrongful death lawsuit does not ask for a specific number in damages.
