Meadow sued Porsche in 2015 claiming that her actor father was trapped by a faulty seatbelt and burned alive while in the passenger seat of a 2005 Porsche Carrera GT.

The lawsuit also alleged that Porsche knew the Carrera GT had a history of ‘instability and control issues’.

Court documents also showed that Paul’s father, Paul William Walker III, also settled his own lawsuit against Porsche.

Meadow previously was awarded $10.1 million in a 2016 settlement from the estate of Roger Rodas.

Paul died aged 40 in a high-speed fiery crash over Thanksgiving weekend in November 2013 after attending his charity event for typhoon victims.

The Porsche was going between 80 and 93 mph in a 45 mph zone when it careened off the road striking a concrete lamp post and two trees and becoming engulfed in flames.
