Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche!
In her lawsuit, she alleges that her father would still be alive if the car maker installed the proper safety features in the expensive car. It was revealed that Walker survived the impact of the crash, but instead burned alive after the seat belt snapped against him, holding him in the car.
Specifically, Meadow’s lawyers assert that despite Porsche “knowing that the Carrera GT had a history of instability and control issues,” the company “failed to install its electronic stability control system,” which they say is “specifically designed to protect against the swerving actions inherent in hyper-sensitive vehicles of this type.”
In addition to the alleged lack of proper stability control, Meadow’s lawyers claim that a “defective” seat belt design kept Walker trapped in the car. If it wasn’t for this design flaw, the lawsuit alleges Walker might have been able to exit the vehicle before it caught on fire.
According to the lawsuit, the seat belt “snapped Walker’s torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis,” trapping him in the car “where he remained alive until the vehicle erupted into flames one minute and twenty seconds later.”
Even the fire itself was allegedly caused by faulty “rubber fuel lines,” according to the lawsuit, which states that “absent these defects in the Porsche Carrera GT, Paul Walker would be alive today.”
