Tracy Morgan Speaks About Injuries After Accident

Tracy Morgan appeared on the Today Show recently to discuss for the first time the auto accident that left him struggling to survive. Even a year later, Morgan’s injuries and emotional trauma are very apparent. The comedian has worked hard to put his life back together and heal from his injuries, but without the help of his medical team, his family, and his car accident lawyers his situation would have been dire.

Morgan’s Case Demonstrates Complex Circumstances

The details of Morgan’s case highlight the complexities of accidents involving commercial trucks. Morgan’s medical recovery has lasted a year so far, and he still has a long way to go to fully recover. Throughout this last year, he has been unable to work and has barely left his house. He also struggles with the loss of his friend and mentor, James McNair, who was killed in the six-vehicle accident.

Walmart Faces ResponsibilityThe Walmart truck that rear-ended Morgan’s limo bus on the New Jersey Turnpike was driven by 35-year-old Kevin Roper. Roper, who had not slept for 24 hours before the accident, has been charged with vehicular homicide and assault as a result of truck driver fatigue. Morgan, along with two other crash survivors, sued Walmart for their role in the accident. That case was settled for $10 million.
