Tracy Morgan’s Recovery After Accident is Difficult

Tracy Morgan

Tracy Morgan is lucky to be alive after being involved in a six-vehicle accident in June after a Wal-Mart truck driver allegedly fell asleep at the wheel and crashed into the comedian’s tour limo. However, his road to recovery has not been paved with roses. It’s been difficult on the actor and comedian, despite his permanent smile and happy personality.

“He’s really having a tough time,” states Benedict P. Morelli, Morgan’s lawyer. Morgan has been attending rehabilitation sessions to help him recover from his injuries, but he still relies heavily on the use of both a walker and a wheelchair to get around. His timeline for being able to walk on his own is unclear, but statements issued by his camp have mentioned that it could be months before the star is able to walk unassisted.

“He’s making incremental progress. But they’ll have to wait another month before they assess him cognitively,” Morelli continued.

Among his injuries, Morgan suffered from a broken leg, which has made his recovery more difficult. In addition to his leg injuries, he also suffered brain injury and facial fractures. While he’s no longer reporting to a rehabilitation center after being released last month, the actor is undergoing therapy for his injuries in the comfort of his own home.

The accident in which the comedian was involved resulted in the death of another comedian, James McNair, 62, and left several other passengers, including Morgan’s personal assistant, badly injured. The investigation as to the cause of the accident and the condition in which the Wal-Mart truck driver was driving is currently ongoing, but Morgan’s camp has filed a lawsuit against Wal-Mart for their part in the accident. It’s believed that the truck driver was driving after being awake for more than 24 hours, which is against the law in New Jersey, where the accident occurred.
