Lawyers for Walker’s 16 year old daughter claim that when the Porsche Carrera GT crashed and broke apart, Paul’s seat belt snapped his back. Due to this, Walker was trapped in the passenger seat.
The suit does claim that the fire did not erupt for 1 minute and 20 seconds after impact but due to Walker being trapped he died in the fire. The suit states that Walker was alive when the fire broke out.
The lawsuit, obtained by TMZ first, alleges that Walker inhaled soot into his trachea while the Porsche Carrera GT burned. According to law enforcement agencies, the cause of the crash was speeding (80 to 93 MPH).
Yet the law suit states that the driver was only going between 63 and 71 MPH. The suit also alleges that the car would never have gone out of control if it had a proper stabilization system.
The lawyers representing Meadow Walker say that the defect can be corrected with a stability management system. The suit also raises other issues with the car such as deficient door reinforcements. The lawyer for Meadow, Jeff Milam, stated that the Porsche Carrera GT is a dangerous car. The car doesn’t deserve to be on the road.
