Both Paul Walker and Roger Rodas were killed in a high-speed crash in 2013 when the Porsche Rodas was driving went out of control.
Walker's sole heir is his 17-year-old daughter Meadow Walker. She initiated a wrongful death suit against Rodas' estate and, only recently, the terms of the settlement were revealed. Interestingly, the settlement was reached in November of 2014, but because it was filed as "Meadow W." it eluded public attention until now.
Under the settlement the estate paid $10.1 million, which was placed in trust for Meadow Walker.
The Huffington Post reported on this settlement in "Paul Walker's Daughter Meadow Reaches $10 Million Crash Settlement."
Rodas was determined to only be partially responsible for the crash that led to Walker's death. It is still possible, though improbable, that Meadow Walker could receive more money from Porsche AG.
She claims the car company failed to put safety measures in the vehicle that could have prevented the crash or at least kept the occupants alive. However, investigators at the time concluded that speed was the sole cause of the crash and a similar suit by Rodas' estate against Porsche AG recently failed in federal court when the judge found no evidence of liability against the company.
