Porsche Claims Paul Walker 'Assumed All Risk' In His Fatal Accident

Porsche responds to 16-year-old Meadow Walker's wrongful death lawsuit.

UPDATE (11/25/15): Paul Walker's father has now filed his own lawsuit against Porsche for wrongful death, per Deadline, claiming that the vehicle he was riding in during his fateful crash two years ago was lacking in necessary safety features, including a stability control system, a breakaway fuel line and side-door reinforcements. Walker's father is seeking unspecified damages from the company.

PREVIOUSLY (11/17/15): Back in September, Paul Walker's teen daughter Meadow initiated legal measures against Porsche, the manufacturer of the vehicle that the "Fast and Furious" star was tragically killed in after a high-speed one-car accident in November 2013.

Now, Porsche has officially responded to the wrongful death lawsuit, claiming that Walker was responsible for his own death according to new documents obtained by PEOPLE.

Per the documents, the company "alleges that Mr. Walker knowingly and voluntarily assumed all risk, perils and danger in respect to the use of the subject 2005 Carrera GT, that the perils, risk and dangers were open and obvious and known to him, and that he chose to conduct himself in a manner as to expose himself to such perils, dangers and risks, thus assuming all the risks involved in using the vehicle."

Meadow's lawsuit maintained that the Porsche Carrera GT, which her father and driver Roger Rodas were driving in, had "a history of instability and control issues" and that certain features of the vehicle, including its safety belts and its stabilization system, contributed to the tragic outcome of the vehicle’s crash, which killed both her father and Rodas. However, Porsche's official statement implies that the late actor knew the potential risks involved in riding in the vehicle and did so anyway.

Porsche also claims that the car "was misused and improperly maintained, and that the misuse and improper maintenance proximately caused or contributed to the incident and to Mr. Walker's death."

The "Fast and Furious" star died in a collision after his friend Rodas lost control of the vehicle, resulting in the accident that killed both. According to police reports, the cause of the accident was deemed speeding, saying that the driver was going between 80 and 93 MPH, in a 45 MPH zone, at the time of the tragic incident.
