Porsche Claims Paul Walker’s Death And Injuries Were The Result Of His Own Comparative Fault
In response to a lawsuit filed by “Fast and Furious” actor Paul Walker’s daughter, Meadow Rain, Porsche totally denied any sort of responsibility in the accident that took place on Nov. 30, 2013.
According to iSchool Guide, Rain filed a wrong lawsuit against the luxury car giant without even considering how the condition was when Walker was driving. Her lawsuits claimed that Porshe is liable for Walker’s accident followed by instant death as the car had multiple design flaws.
“The vehicle lacked safety features that are found on well-designed racing cars or even Porsche’s least expensive road cars — features that could have prevented the accident or, at a minimum, allowed Paul Walker to survive the crash,” a small part of the lawsuit filed by Walker’s 16-year old daughter Rain.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department conducted an investigation in March 2014. Commander Mike Parker already stated, “Investigators determined the cause of the fatal solo-vehicle collision was unsafe speed for the roadway conditions.” The report even highlighted the speed of Walker’s car before crashing into a concrete lamppost and two trees on Hercules street was between 80 and 93 miles per hour. Whereas, the speed limit posted in that area where the accident happened was at 45 miles per hour.
Fortune reported that the legal papers were filed by the German carmaker with an objective to dismiss a wrongful death lawsuit filed by Walker’s daughter in September. Even earlier, the company completely denied responsibility for the fatal accident caused to Walker. The company even elaborated in its last week’s filing that his death, all other injuries or damages claimed were the result of his own comparative fault.
Porsche even extended its clarification mentioning that Walker knowingly and voluntarily assumed all risk, perils and danger and all the factors were open and known to him.
