Paul Walker’s daughter denies ‘he was responsible for his own death’

Porsche has filed a response to Meadow Walker's wrongful death lawsuit.

Two months ago Meadow alleged that the Porsche Carrera GT lacked safety features that could have prevented the accident. Now, the car company is defending themselves against several accusations.  

In court documents obtained by E! News, Porsche alleges that Paul "knowingly and voluntarily assumed all risk, perils and danger in respect to the use of the subject 2005 Carrera GT."

The company goes on to state that the "risk and dangers were open and obvious and known to him and that he chose to conduct himself in a manner so as to expose himself to such perils, dangers and risks, thus assuming all the risks involved in using the vehicle."

The company also believes that Meadow is barred from receiving any compensation because Paul was both “a knowledgeable and sophisticated user of the car." 

In September, Meadow and her lawyers filed a lawsuit alleging that Porsche knew that the specific car in Paul's case "had a history of instability and control issues."

In respond to the company’s latest statement on the issue, Meadow’s attorney is continuing to argue that her father was not at fault in the tragic accident.

“It is beyond regrettable that Porsche is trying to deflect its own responsibility by blaming the victim—Paul Walker—for his own death by getting into the passenger seat of its Carrera G.T." 

The statement continued: "Contrary to Porsche's assertions, the facts are clear: Paul was the passenger in a car that was not designed to protect its occupants in a crash on a dry, empty straightaway in broad daylight and at speeds well below the vehicle's advertised capabilities." 

Jeff Milam, Meadow’s attorney concluded by saying: "If Porsche had designed the car to include proper safety features, Paul would have survived, he would be filming Fast and Furious 8, and Meadow Walker would have the father she adored."
