More than two years after the tragic car accident that killed her father Paul Walker, Meadow Walker is walking away with $10.1 million from the man who was driving the vehicle.
Roger Rodas‘ estate forked over the money in a settlement decision this week, acknowledging that he was partly to blame for the crash that killed both himself and Paul.
“The amount paid by the estate of Roger Rodas into a trust for Meadow Walker only covers a fraction of what her father would have earned as an international movie star had his life not tragically been cut short,” the 17-year-old’s lawyer, Jeffrey Milam, said in a statement to City News Service.
What was left of the car Paul and Roger were traveling in.
The only child of the actor also filed a lawsuit against Porsche AG, claiming the vehicle driven by Roger was defective.
However, a judge ruled earlier this week that there isn’t enough evidence to prove that the car company is responsible for the death of the Fast & Furious star.
Meadow is expected to receive approximately $7.2 million after expenses and attorney fees have been paid.
