Paul Walker's daughter wins $10.1 million settlement

Paul Walker's daughter Meadow Walker has won a $10.1 million settlement from Roger Rodas' estate, who was behind the wheel of the Porsche that killed both Paul and himself in 2013.
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 - Meadow's lawyer, Jeffrey Milam.
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 her father death was denied while earlier this week.

Roda's widow also lost lawsuit against Porsche. In her suit, Kristine Rodas contended that the crash occurred because of a failure in the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT’s suspension system and a lack of proper safety features.

A federal judge said the car was not at fault in crash that killed both men:
Mr. Rodas, the driver of the car, took partial responsibility for the crash. Both Walker, 40, and Rodas, 38, died at the scene after the Porsche hit a concrete pole and several trees while traveling 80-93 miles per hour in a 45-mph zone in Valencia, Calif.
The 17- year old is reportedly will continue the fight' against Porsche despite judge's ruling.

The settlement between Walker and the Rodas estate was finalized in November 2014 but remained undisclosed until this week.

The "Fast and the Furious” star also left his entire estate, valued at $25 million, to his daughter.
