A wrongful death lawsuit was recently filed against Porsche claiming negligence in the death of movie actor Paul Walker almost two years ago, a November 27 article of NBC News reported.
Reports said lawyers representing the actor’s father claimed that some “safety features” were not included in the 2005 model Porsche Carrera GT occupied by Walker at the time of his single-vehicle crash on November 30, 2013. The lawsuit also claimed that some parts of the vehicle were found to be defective, including seat belts and “side-door reinforcements.” The lawsuit alleges that the actor may have survived the accident if his vehicle had sufficient safety features. A similar lawsuit was filed by the actor’s daughter last September. Fellow race enthusiast Roger Rodas, who was operating the vehicle occupied by Walker, was also killed in the crash.
