Paul Walker: Daughter's Lawyer Says Porsche's Victory is Irrelevant


Porsche will have to pay up dearly in the wrongful death lawsuit filed by Paul Walker's daughter, despite the car company's win against the driver's widow ... so says Meadow Walker's lawyer.

Attorney Jeff Milam tells TMZ, Porsche's big victory will have no impact on Meadow's case ... for several reasons. First, a federal judge ruled against Roger Rodas' widow, and Meadow has filed in a different legal system ... L.A. County Superior Court. The federal dismissal has no bearing on Meadow's case.

Even more important, Milam says Rodas was killed instantly upon impact, adding, "Meadow's father, Paul Walker, was a passenger in the car. He survived the crash but was trapped and burned to death because of the vehicle's defects."

TMZ broke the story, the judge in the Rodas case ruled the claim that the fuel cell was compromised in the crash is irrelevant, because it has nothing to do with the cause of his death. Meadow's lawyer is claiming the fire was the cause of Paul's demise, and he'd still be alive were it not for a defect in the cell.

Milam says, "Meadow will continue the fight to hold Porsche accountable for selling a defective product that kills."
