Paul Walker’s Daughter Claims Design Flaws in Porsche for His Father’s Death
Meadow, 16 year old daughter of Paul Walker came out claiming the terrific crash of his father’s car to Porsche. She filed a lawsuit against the car manufacturer.

As per her claims, 2005 Carrera GT had design faults and her father was alive when the car caught fire and then crashed horrifically. However, the lawsuit says that the F&F star did not die of the impact of hitting the vehicle a concrete lamppost and some trees by his driver. Report says that Paul Walker was alive even when that sports car caught fire.
Lawyers of Meadow claimed that the sports car crashed and Walker was thrashed by thousand pounds of force hitting his ribs and pelvis. Further, the star fought for his life for one and a half minute when the car caught fire. The lawyers alleged that Walker breathed soot into his trachea while the car burnt.
The lawsuit said that the vehicle at that time was driving between 63 and 71 MPH.
