Roger Rodas was the driver of the Porsche involved in the accident that killed both Walker and Rodas in 2013, which left fans shocked and devastated.

Jeffrey Milam, Meadow's attorney, released the following statement:

"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.

"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."

Earlier this week, Rodas' widow lost her lawsuit against Porsche, which included allegations of negligence, wrongful death and product liability. 

Speaking on the Rodas case, Milam pointed out that the cases were too different to compare.

"The issues in the cases are very different," he told E! News. "The federal case was filed on behalf of Roger Rodas, who was the driver of the Porsche Carrera GT and was killed instantly upon impact." 

"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."

Last Father's Day, Meadow, who is now 17, shared a sweet throwback photo of herself as a baby embracing her late father.
