Paul Walker's Father Sues Porsche For Son's Death, Says Car Lacked Safety Measure
Paul Walker's father Paul William Walker III, on Wednesday November 25, 2015, filed a lawsuit suing the German car maker Porsche for his son's death in 2013. The 'Fast & Furious' actor died two years ago in a car accident in California.
The actor was on a break from making the 'Furious 7' movie when the incident occurred. His car Porsche Carrera GT was driven by his friend Roger Rodas, while Paul was seated in the passenger's seat. Both men were lost in the accident.
According to the reports, driver Roger lost control over the car and crashed into three trees. The car burst into flames after the crash and was burned down. Paul's father is claiming that the car lacked safety measure which could have saved his son and the driver's life.
The lawsuit filed by William Walker claims a wrongful and negligence death of his son. He says the car had a history of instability and control issues. Similar issues have been raised by Paul's widowed wife and daughter Meadow Walker.
But company responded to Meadow Walker's lawsuit saying that "Porsche Carrera GT had been altered and improperly maintained and those factors contributed to the deaths of Walker and Rodas," it added, "knowingly and voluntarily assumed all risk".
