Tracy Morgan’s lawyer says he has serious brain damage4
Tracy Morgan is suffering. According to his attorneys, the injuries he sustained after his car was hit by a Walmart truck were even worse than most people thought.
According to Morgan’s attorneys, the actor is suffering from severe brain trauma and may have a difficult time ever making a full recovery. The crash with the truck driver was more than five months ago and Morgan’s lawyers say that they are not sure if Tracy will ever be, “the Tracy Morgan he once was.”
Attorney Benedict Morelli is claiming that Morgan’s brain injury only worsened the impact of damage that was already done to his leg, nose and ribs, all of which were broken during the tragic incident.
“He’s fighting to get better, and if there’s a chance for him to be back to the Tracy Morgan he once was, he’s going to try to do that,” Morelli said. “But we just don’t know because of the severity of the injuries that he sustained and the fact that he had such a severe brain injury.”
Attorneys revealed all of this information during a recent court appearance to determine if Walmart should be made to pay for what their driver did to the actor. It is alleged that the driver fell asleep in the crash, therefore causing the accident. Walmart has tried to argue that it was Morgan’s fault for not wearing a seatbelt during the crash.
As a result of the accident, comedian James McNair was killed. Also, three others were injured, with two of the injuries being very serious.
Morgan was able to recover, but isn’t able to perform nearly as much as he could before, if at all. It appears that the effects of the accident are going to be very long-term.
