On Thursday, Meadow received a $10.1 million settlement from the estate of Roger Rodas, the driver involved in the 2013 fatal car crash that killed both him and the Fast and Furious star.
"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, Jeff Milam, said of the large settlement, which was actually reached in 2014.
Meadow and her lawyer are still going forward with their wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche that was filed in September. "Through his estate, Mr. Rodas, the driver of the car, took partial responsibility for the crash," Milam said in a statement to ET. "Meadow's lawsuit against Porsche AG -- a $13 billion corporation -- intends to hold the company responsible for producing a vehicle that was defective and caused Paul Walker's death."
Roger and Paul were riding in a Porsche Carrera GT on Nov. 20, 2013, when it crashed and exploded in Santa Clarita, California. Both men were pronounced dead at the scene. Paul was 40 years old.
Meadow is now continuing her father's legacy of charity work. Last September, in honor of what would have been Paul's 42nd birthday, she announced the official launch of the Paul Walker Foundation, whose simple mission is to "do good." The foundation also provides grants and scholarships to selected students and researchers pursuing marine science educations, or working on advancements in the field.
"Reflecting on my father, I found myself reflecting on his passions," Meadow wrote. "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."
