Daughter of late ‘Fast and Furious’ star Paul Walker, Meadow Walker has gotten a $10.1 million deal with the driver of the car in which her father died. The 17-year-old girl was settled with Roger Rodas’ estate on Friday, April 8.
Meadow’s lawyer Jeffrey Milam issued a statement regarding the settlement with Rodas’ estate, saying, “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.”
“Through his estate, Mr. Rodas, the driver of the car, took partial responsibility for the crash,” he continued, “Meadow’s lawsuit against Porsche AG-a $13 billion corporation-intends to hold the company responsibly for producing a vehicle that was defective and caused Paul Walker’s death.”
According to Jeffrey, Meadow will receive approximately $7.2 million after expenses and attorneys’ fees.
Jeffrey said that the basis of the settlement was that Roger was partly to blame for the fatal accident, although he was “not directing the car through any particularly unsafe maneuvers when it went out of control.”
