Paul Walker‘s 18-year-old daughter has settled her wrongful death lawsuit with Porsche after claiming the car company was responsible for her father’s death.
Meadow Walker and the car company reached a settlement after she claimed her father’s death could have been prevented.
The terms of the settlement are confidential, but the documents state that a settlement has been reached and the lawsuit has been dismissed, E! News reports.
Back in November 2013, Paul was riding in a Porsche Carrera GT between 80 and 93 MPH when it crashed into a tree and burst into flames.
In the lawsuit filed by Meadow two years ago, she claimed the car “lacked safety features…that could have prevented the accident or, at a minimum, allowed Paul Walker to survive the crash.”Continue Reading
The late actor’s daughter is now 18-years-old and has made a return to Instagram after a year long hiatus.
While Meadow took to the social media platform to share a throwback photo with Paul last year, she hasn’t posted a current photo since 2015.
The new photo features Meadow sitting outside of a window and shielding her eyes from the sun.
Earlier this year, Meadow signed a modeling contract with Women Management. She also founded the Paul Walker Foundation in 2015, which aims to protect the oceans and wildlife.

The settlement was actually reached 2014, but remained under the radar because it was not filed under Meadow‘s name.
“The amount paid by the estate of Roger Rodas into a trust for Meadow Walker only covers a fraction of what her father would have earned as an international movie star had his life not tragically been cut short,” the lawyer explained.
Meadow is still in the middle of a lawsuit against Porsche AG for “producing a vehicle that was defective and caused Paul Walker‘s death.”Continue Reading
The car company is saying that Paul‘s death was his own fault and that he was “a knowledgeable and sophisticated user of the 2005 Carrera GT.” According to TMZ.
Porsche is also replying to the allegations that the car was defective. “The subject 2005 Carrera GT was abused and altered,” Porsche reportedly says in the suit, adding that the car was “misused and improperly maintained.”
The filing deduces that Paul was partly to blame for his death. Paul died almost two years ago at age 40 in a fiery car crash in Southern California.Continue Reading
“Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions. His passion for the ocean, his passion for rescuing animals, his passion for helping people and his passion for spontaneous goodwill,” the 16-year-old wrote on Instagram.
“I wanted to start this foundation because I want to share that piece of him with the world. I want to share that part of him with others,” Meadow added. “I am tremendously proud to be launching The #PaulWalkerFoundation (@paulwalkerfdn) on his birthday. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate my father. #DoGood”
