Paul Walker's daughter wins $10.1M crash settlement

The daughter of Paul Walker has won a $10.1 million settlement from the estate of Roger Rodas, who was behind the wheel of the Porsche in which both men died in November 2013.

Jeff Milam, the attorney for 17-year-old Meadow Walker, told TMZ.com that while Rodas was partially responsible for the crash, while not "directing the car through any particularly unsafe maneuvers when it went out of control."

The settlement between Walker and the Rodas estate was finalized in November 2014 but remained undisclosed until this week.

"Through his estate, Mr. Rodas, the driver of the car, took partial responsibility for the crash," Milas said in a statement to USA TODAY. "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."

He said the money would be placed in a trust for Meadow Walker, but that it only covers "a fraction of what her father would have earned had his life not been tragically cut short."

He added that he and his client intend to continue their lawsuit against Porsche AG in Los Angeles Superior Court, despite the fact that a federal judge dismissed a similar case brought by Rodas' widow Kristine earlier this week. She had claimed the accident was the result of a suspension failure and the lack of key safety features on her husband's 2005 Carrera GT.
