After the unfortunate death of Hollywood star Paul Walker on 30th November, 2013, when his friend Roger Rodas crashed his 2005 Porsche Carrera GT into a pole, his daughter Meadow Rain Walker filed a lawsuit against luxury car manufacturer Porsche. Meadow had alleged that design flaws in the car prevented Paul from getting out after the accident.
Porsche has responded to the lawsuit with a 7 page document that says Paul Walker was well versed with the design and controls of the Carrera GT. Porsche also mentions that the Carrera GT owned by Roger Rodas was heavily modified, “Abused and Altered”, and this contributed to the accident and Paul Walker’s death. Porsche also claimed that the car was “misused and improperly maintained” and hence “Mr Walker’s death, and all other injuries or damages claimed, were the result of Mr Walker’s own comparative fault.”
