Meadow sued Porsche in 2015, claiming that her father could have survived the crash but was instead trapped in the Carrera GT by a defective seatbelt and burned alive.

Meadow alleged that the seatbelt “snapped Walker’s torso back with thousands of pounds of force, thereby breaking his ribs and pelvis.”

In 2016, Meadow collected a $10.1 million settlement from the estate of driver of the car, Roger, who also died in the accident. The cause of the crash was determined to be the high speeds at which Roger was driving, between 80 and 93 miles per hour.
