Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow Walker has received $10.1 million from the estate of Roger Rodas, the driver in the fatal 2013 car accident that killed him and the movie star.
The 17-year-old’s lawyer Jeffrey Milam released the statement regarding the settlement decision that read, “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,” E! Online reported.
Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions. His passion for the ocean, his passion for rescuing animals, his passion for helping people and his passion for spontaneous goodwill. I wanted to start this foundation because I want to share that piece of him with the world. I want to share that part of him with others. I am tremendously proud to be launching The #PaulWalkerFoundation (@paulwalkerfdn) on his birthday. I can't think of a better way to celebrate my father. #DoGood
The statement continued, “Through his estate, Mr. Rodas, the driver of the car, took partial responsibility for the crash. Meadow’s lawsuit against Porsche AG, a $13 billion corporation, intends to hold the company responsibly for producing a vehicle that was defective and caused Paul Walker’s death.”
Walker will receive approximately $7.2 million, after expenses and attorney fees have been paid.
