The Fast and Furious star and his pal Roger were killed in 2013 when the 2005 Porsche Carrera GT Roger was driving crashed into a pole and trees and burst into flames. Paul was only 40.

His 17-year-old daughter Meadow has now been awarded $10.1 million (£7.2 million) in a settlement with Roger's estate, which has taken "partial responsibility" for the crash. She will receive around $7.2 million (£5.1 million) after expenses and lawyers fees.

"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 explained in a statement to City News Service.

"Through his estate, Mr. Rodas, the driver of the car, took partial responsibility for the crash. Meadow's lawsuit against Porsche AG - a $13 billion corporation - intends to hold the company responsibly for producing a vehicle that was defective and caused Paul Walker's death."

Meadow is still pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit against Porsche manufacturers, insisting the car was missing safety features that could have prevented her father's death.

Roger's widow Kristine filed a similar lawsuit but a judge ruled that Porsche bosses were not at fault and dismissed the legal action on Monday (04Apr16).
