Actor Paul Walker's daughter Meadow Walker has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche.

Paul Walker died in a fiery car crash after the Porsche Carrera GT he was riding in lost control and hit a utility pole in Nov. 2013. The diver, Roger Rodas, also died in the high-speed crash. Walker was 40.

From USA Today:

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, the car was going 80 and 93 mph when it collided with a power pole and several trees.

The Associated Press says the suit claims the car, marketed as a street-legal race car, lacked a proper stability control system and safeguards to protect occupants and keep it from catching fire after a collision.

TMZ, which first reported the lawsuit, quotes the suit saying "Paul Walker survived the impact of the crash that took his life but suffered horrifically as he was burned alive." The suit also states that when Porsche Carrera GT crashed, Paul's seat belt "snapped Walker's torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis," and trapping him in the passenger seat.

UPDATE: Porsche responded to Meadow Walker's lawsuit by blaming reckless driving and excessive speed.

In a statement released today Porsche replied:

“As we have said before, we are very sad whenever anyone is hurt in a Porsche vehicle, but we believe the authorities’ reports in this case clearly establish that this tragic crash resulted from reckless driving and excessive speed.”

    Such a sad tragedy ?but this scenario doesn't seem case worthy. Unfortunately, Greed is always lurking N high profile deaths. Pretty sure someone behind the scenes is coaching her.?
    Will probably b a settlement just 2 avoid bad press for the car maker.

    Seems like the only person she'd be able to sue for wrongful death is the driver of the car. But she can't sue him so....that's all I got. RIP to both men though.

    Paul always said he would die doing what he loved. I just wish he didn't suffer in his last moments. I hope she is able to find comfort in his peace and learns to cope with his passing...she'll see him again.

    1)The gay dude is cute as hell to me, there are A LOT of gay sex scenes..IMO
    2)When I seen Ms. Viola take of that wig and all that makeup and make those faces, lawd forgive me, but nope.
    3)Her husband is a straight dirt bag.
    4)The black dude is cute in a quirky sort of way.
    5)Them framing that boy and the ex-cop finding out..*mind blown*
    6)The chick still marrying dude after she found out about him and the cute dude.
    7)That meeting about the pre-nup, mom dukes said You will not steal what we have built, bish...
    That's all I got, forgive my enthusiasm but I missed out on a lot..
    I almost forgot when that boy fell out the window and she got dude off death row...I shed a tear...

  • Let Your Soul Glow

    So I'm sure I missed the discussion, but I watched LAHHH for the first time last night (damn my sister for deboeing the remote!). I only know these people from what I read on here. The girl who got thrown out of Fizz's house, was that his child's mother? The one who sells the freaky toys? Or am I mixing up ppl? (I'm almost mad I'm using brain cells trying to understand this...)

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    Bahahahahahahahahahaaaa!!! We're doing good :))))))) He lives in Cali I live in CT.. I'm thinking about making a move out there before the end of the year..

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Daymn...you behind azz hell. lol.. jk...its good

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Alrigth now...You get a commitment first in form of platinum or Gold...cause Cali is too expensive to be going out on faith with nothing to pawn.

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    Yup! I already told him that.. LOL

  • Milani

    LOL, the chick he threw out, her name is Kamiah. His child's mom's name is Moniece (not sure of the spelling and too lazy to google). They both look alike to me.

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    TrashBag ( bc she got thrown out) No, one of the many chicks he should never mess with but not kid's mom. Fizz would never touch her ( real BM) or attempt to throw her out bc she would probably stab him, bury him...planet a tree in his honor and read the Sunday paper on top of him...she's crazy

  • Bootcampgirl

    LOL, I know right

  • Libragirlone

    Me too!

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    I don't see it. lol

  • Bootcampgirl

    Speaking of, is it just me or does Moniece seem a little too bossy with her new boo?? I was looking at my screen with my face turned completely up, that's a good way to run a man away..early

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

  • Bootcampgirl

    I got Hulu/Netflix and this wonderful little thing called Kodi, which can be downloaded from the app store...

  • TheRealLee

    No one should be driving beyond the speed limit regardless of the type of car one has. If he was driving a grand prix auto on a 45 mile zone then he better not exceed the speed limit. It's a waste unless you go to the desert or someplace you can exceed the speed limit with your fancy car.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    I'm sorry she lost her dad in the crash, and bless her heart for trying, but it's not Porshe's fault. The driver was going 80 & 93 mph and crashed into a pole. Street-legal race car or not, he went way past the posted speed limit and this was the result.

    he seem so goofy I cant take him seriously every time he is on screen I start laughing

    The only reason I think she could have a case, is the fact about the seat belts. If he could of gotten out of the car, he still might be alive.

  • ramosyo

    Question?? why wait 2 years later to come up with this ? I mean she was sole heir to his will damnit!.. You cannot justify why he was going 80,93 an hour anyway..+ the fact he jumped in the passenger seat no one forced him to get in his friends car. I mean let go, let GOD.

    It took 2 years to find a suit.

  • Full Monty

    IDK sounds like the driver was the one at fault for speeding. You can't control a car at that speed unless you are a professional and that doesn't always work. They probably will settle but it sounds like she should be going after the estate of the driver.

  • FoxyDiva

    Yep, Porsche don't want those details public. Bad for sales

  • rodt

    How? How you going to sue the car company? A. they were personally wreckless. B. He did not own or purchase the car. C. the big one. they wrecked the car, it was not a malfunction or some error with the vehicle.

  • ZZZ

    They were not burned alive. According the autopsy report, the died on impact from head trauma before the Porches exploded. Even if the Porches had not exploded, they would still be dead. Meadow is grieving for her dad and was probably convinced by Roger Rodas wife to join her in the same lawsuit she filed last year which is still pending in federal court. If anything, Meadow should sue the Rodas estate for killing her dad if she needs to feel better. After all, he should not have been driving in a rate of speed in a business area. He was a race car driver. If both needed a need to speed, they should have taken the Porches to an appropriate place to speed. I pretty sure they both had access to such places and both would still be here.

  • rodt

    he was crashed.....

  • rodt

    no they wont. You dont know porsche

  • rodt

    They sell out that model every year. Actually it boosted sales

  • ZZZ

    I'm pretty sure Roger Rodas' wife. She started the lawsuit last year and it's still pending in federal court.

  • BLOODBLOOD

    Wtf I'm sure he left her millions why be so greedy ??

  • FoxyDiva

    We'll c once the lawsuit get underway

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    The details of that crash is still so hard to stomach.. Even 2 years later.. Poor Meadow..

  • Ms.Capricorn101

    This what got me....i felt goosebumps as I was reading it

  • dazoe

    Yea that snake lawyer knows that. Especially since the girl is truly innocent and being taken advantage of. This is probably why corporate american isn't giving raises.

  • Glenda Nichole

    Rodas died on impact, not Paul as he had some soot in his lungs and notice his autopsy says Thermal injuries as well as Traumatic when Rodas' says just Traumatic. Paul's injuries May have been survivable, but not with that inferno. I'm sure she is angry to lose her dad, but in such a way has to be absolutely heartbreaking and if you are selling a car for half a mil I think there is some responsibility to make consumers as safe as possible and if you look up the particular model he died in it's notorious for being unsafe at high speeds from a mere bump on the road, but I agree they should have Never been on that road anyway and Rodas is most responsible. Paul's family even had to sue the Rodas family already to get some of Paul's cars back! Just sad and tragic all around and I hope that she can find peace, but I think of that stupid quote of Paul's where he says that if the speed kills him don't be sad because he died doing what he loved and I'm sure this was not what he meant and makes him seem a bit reckless because life outweighs a thrill. Regardless, the only person I can think of who deserves this type of death is Trayvon Martin's killer...actually no he deserves worse?

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Porsche actually has a class for those that purchase the Carrera GT. It is not for novice drivers. By design it is a challenging piece of machinery and buyers are made aware of this before ordering it. It is nothing like the 911s, 964s, etc. that they produce. A sad situation, but they really can't blame Porsche. They were in a Business Park and only a few hundred yards from where they left. The driving was reckless. Maybe the suit should be against the Estate of Roger Rodas.

  • Parisjok

    it just seems so shocking that a person as beautiful as Paul where every body says he was so good would pass away so very, very, badly and someone so physically beautiful would be gone in such a violent shocking manner.

    a book I read written by a person who does autopsies on bodies says that people deserve to pass away in the manner that they do!! what could he have done in life to deserve this horrible way of leaving this earth?
