Paul Walker’s daughter Meadow has been award a $10.1 million settlement from Roger Rodas’ estate.
Rodas and Walker were killed in a car crash in 2013. Rodas was driving the car and Walker was the passenger.
“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,” Meadow’s lawyer, Jeffrey Milam, said in a statement to City News Service.
Earlier this week, a federal judge ruled that Rodas’ widow cannot prove the carmaker is responsible for the accident.
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
