    It’s always someone else’s fault.

      Of Course it is someone else’s fault. Solution to this stupidity is to put the plantiff bar on the hook for all defense costs if the Judge finds that the case is without merit.

    it seems that every accident has to be the fault of someone or something other than the complaining party. Prsche should have the right to recover their costs , pain and suffering, loss of reputation, etc.. if the wife fails to prove her case. of course in California and the fact it was a movie star, Porsche better get ready to pay through the nose. i can only pray the Walker family will then drain the wife of her illgotten gains. the claim lottery is alive and well !!

    Haven’t gone backed and looked, but I thought the original reports said that the speed was in excess of 100 mph at the time of the crash?

      How would she know the car was traveling at 55MPH?

        Has the information contained in the car’s data recorders (the car has 2 or 3 data recorders) been made public?

    Doesn’t this car have a couple of data recorders? Could be where she got the speed info from.

    If the driver was going 55 MPH, how did he lose control of the vehicle so badly. He was supposedly a professional race car driver. At 55 mph, he should not have lost control as he did. I own a Porsche, so I am not unbiased. I know how they are built and designed. If you are competent and under control, they can maneuver as well as any vehicle on the planet. This would lead one to believe that excessive speed and driver error are the primary driving factors that cost Paul Walker his life (and a little girl lost her Dad).

      Here’s an excerpt from another story on the crash:

      “Kristine Rodas filed the lawsuit today … claiming the Porsche Carrera GT Paul and Roger were driving had a faulty part in the suspension which caused the car to careen out of control. In the papers, she claims Roger tried to keep the car on the road, but could not regain control before hitting a light pole.

      In the docs, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court … Kristine also blames Porsche for the car exploding on impact — claiming the vehicle lacked a proper “crash cage” and a “racing fuel cell.”

      Well, if it was 55 he must’ve lost it sideways from a standing start and never let up.

    I wonder whether Ms. Rodas retained Bill Shoemaker’s legal team.
