Paul Walker’s Father Sues Porsche Over the Accident that Killed the ‘Fast and Furious’ Actor
There is nothing more unfortunate than losing your son and for a child to lose a father, so when tragedy struck Paul Walker’s family in the form of “Furious 7” star’s demise; one can imagine how tough it must have been for the family. Almost two years later, Paul’s father has sued Porsche claiming that it was because of lack of features in Paul’s car that led to his death.
According to Fox News, Paul’s father Paul William Walker III has sued Porsche for the death of Paul and has claimed negligence and wrongful death as the reason. It has been two years since the “Furious 7” star breathed his last and after his daughter sued the car company, his father has filed a fresh lawsuit against the same.
In his lawsuit, Paul’s father has cited the absence of features like stability control system, side-door reinforcements and breakaway fuel line and added that had these features been on the car, Paul’s life would have been saved. Porsche from their side have maintained that there was nothing wrong with the Carrera GT that Paul was in and put a counter argument that the car was not in proper condition and it was because of that Paul and business associate Roger Rodas lost their lives.
Cops too in their investigation have cited the tremendous speed the car was travelling at as one of the reasons why it crashed. Despite all of it Paul’s daughter Meadow’s lawsuit claims that it was because of the car company’s negligence that Paul was in the terrible accident and even went ahead and claimed that the model sold to them was not safe enough.
E! added that on November 30, Paul along with his friend and business associate Roger were riding in the 2005 Porsche Carrera when the car went out of control, hit a tree and caught fire, which killed both of them. All the fans, including many Hollywood pals of Paul, grieved over his death and amongst them Vin Diesel was definitely the one who was affected the most. With the help of Paul’s brothers, “Furious 7” finished filming and went on to gross $1.5 billion worldwide.
