ANOTHER WRONGFUL DEATH SUIT FILED OVER PAUL WALKER CRASH
News broke recently that another lawsuit has arisen from the tragic automobile accident involving a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT that claimed the life of Paul Walker and Roger Rodas in November 2013 in the Santa Clarita area northwest of Los Angeles.
In or around May 2013, the widow of the driver of the Porsche, Kristine Rodas, filed suit against Porsche, purportedly alleging negligence, wrongful death and product liability.
Paul Walker’s daughter, Meadow Walker, has alleged in her lawsuit that the car was unsafe and dangerous. According to the L.A. Times, her lawsuit claims Porsche took safety shortcuts, marketed the vehicle as a race car licensed for the road, knew the car had a history of instability, and failed to address safety concerns in the design and manufacture of the vehicle.
Claims have surfaced of other deaths related to this particular vehicle.
