Tracy Morgan May Never Perform Again Due To His Car Crash Injuries

Tracy Morgan May Never Perform Again Due To His Car Crash Injuries

Tracy Morgan‘s prognosis after his car accident is still not clear, his lawyer has said.

“The jury’s still out,” Benedict Morelli, Tracy‘s lawyer, told The New York Post about whether he will ever perform again. “The doctors don’t know the answer. I don’t know the answer.”

This news of Tracy‘s prognosis comes on the heels of his Walmart saying they were not at fault for the crash because Tracy and his friends were not wearing seatbelts.

We continue sending Tracy well wishes during his recovery.

    I am sorry to hear this, but I’m disturbed by comments that Wal Mart is falsely blaming Morgan.

    Walmart rightfully pointed out that Morgan wasn’t wearing a seatbelt. Contrary to some reports, seat belts are required in limos in New Jersey.

    Walmart has a legitimate question in asking, if Morgan was wearing a seatbelt, would he have been less injured?

    Saying Walmart is the devil here is wrong. There are literally tens of thousands of vehicular deaths each year, many due to people not wearing seat belts.

    There are also thousands of accidents involving uninsured drivers out there, including low income and illegal residents.

    This is a huge public issue, not a Wal mart issue.

    Shame on Morgan for not using this opportunity to talk about it.

    @G: So, what is your response for Walmart giving the truck driver an over-24hrs work schedule?

  • Jackie

    @G: It’s too bad people like you aren’t the ones killed in the car crashes.

    @Jackie: eat a d!ck

    Walmart WILL pay in this, they won’t walk away.

    Trucker scheduling has always been a serious issue. It’s especially serious with independent contractors – people who carry around Walmart and other company goods, but aren’t their employees. Morgan was lucky that Walmart was this trucker’s direct employee because it means they (their insurance company actually) will pay through the nose.

    My basic point is that trucker accidents and vehicle accidents happen every single hour, every single day that lead to death. Instead of just blaming Wal Mart, let’s solve the issue for everyone’s benefit instead of just Morgan’s!

    @G: I agree. The timing of this is interesting, too. I hope he fully recovers, but this statement comes a day after Walmart’s. They’re going to be bickering back and forth, and he needs to take responsibility for not wearing a seat belt, and Walmart needs to take responsibility for their driver. Hopefully, they can meet somewhere in the middle.

    @Jackie: Suck on it too, while you’re at it.

    I never watched him, never thought he was funny at all. Yes it is strange ‘he may never entertain again’, get ready to pay WalMart. The minute you pay he will be back on stage. I am sorry he was in the accident.

  • crapfest

    So falling asleep at the wheel of a semi is perfectly OK, the real crime here is being in the way when they do? F******g REALLY?

  • Kristen

    All he does is run his mouth in garbled words that aren’t remotely funny or entertaining. Oh, I almost forgot, he’s a homophobe. Karma. Got to love her. And what a surprise that she works for a Wal Mart. Who knew?

  • Kristen

    @G Oh, but he’s a celebrity. They don’t have to obey the law like the rest of us. I hope Wal Mart sees this all the way through.

  • Kristen

    @Jackie And then shove it up your moronic a$$.

  • EtnaStar

    He may never walk again. Walmart is trying to reduce the settlement they will have to pay. They will have to pay something. What do they care? They’re still filthy rich. The six heirs of Walmart are rolling in money. This is chump change to them.

  • claudia

    I’m really sorry that this happens beacause of that terrible accident but I won’t miss him on the public scene. Still, it sucks that it is not a free choice but a collateral one.

    People failed to understand the concept of mitigating or comparative liability which has a direct effect on damages. If you failed to follow a law and you are injured you may be barred in some states from receiving damages, in others the amount of damages is mitigated by your percent of negligence. So while Walmart will probably end up paying something for the injuries, they may well not be found to be 100% responsible. In that case let’s say if the judge or jury determines that Morgan is 50% at fault for his injuries and the total value of his claim is 100 million dollars, he would only receive 50 million in the settlement. Laws differ from state to state. No matter how horrific the injuries are the courts have to look at whether any laws were violated and if the parties were negligence, even the injured party. Corporations can’t be held up for money just because they have it. They are entitled to the due process of law like everyone else.
