Paul Walker’s dad files lawsuit

Paul Walker’s father has officially taken up a lawsuit against Porsche, on the basis of ‘negligence’ and ‘wrongful death’. He took up the lawsuit almost exactly two years after Walker’s death in 2013. Famous for the Fast and Furious franchise and charitable efforts, Walker and friend Roger Rodas died when the Porsche he was in spun out of control.   

Walker’s daughter Meadow also filed a similar lawsuit and Porsche responded by releasing a statement stating “[Walker] knowingly and voluntarily assumed all risk, perils and danger in respect to the use of the subject 2005 Carrera GT." The company continued to state that the "risk and dangers were open and obvious and known to him and that he chose to conduct himself in a manner so as to expose himself to such perils, dangers and risks, thus assuming all the risks involved in using the vehicle."

A representative for Meadow responded with a statement:

"It is beyond regrettable that Porsche is trying to deflect its own responsibility by blaming the victim - Paul Walker - for his own death by getting into the passenger seat of its Carrera GT. Contrary to Porsche's assertions, the facts are clear: Paul was the passenger in a car that was not designed to protect its occupants, in a crash on a dry, empty straightaway in broad daylight and at speeds well below the vehicle's advertised capabilities."

Walker’s father stance is the car was “defective” due to the seat belt being faulty and the rubber fuel lines design.
