Tracy Morgan's injuries from a devastating six-car accident in June are so serious that the comedian may never be able to perform live again. Morgan, who is suing Walmart over the accident that landed him in critical condition, is in the midst of intensive therapy and lawyer Benedict Morelli told the New York Post that it's unclear when, or if, the 45-year-old star will take the stage again.
"The jury’s still out," Morelli reportedly told the paper. "The doctors don’t know the answer. I don’t know the answer." Morelli said Morgan's daily routine includes speech, cognitive and physical therapy.
Morgan is suing Walmart over the accident, in which the comedian and three others were injured -- and friend and fellow comedian James "Jimmy Mack" McNair was killed -- claiming that the retail giant should have known their driver Kevin Roper was "fatigued" when he caused the pile-up. On Monday, Walmart responded, claiming, in part, that Morgan’s injuries "were caused, in whole or in part, by plaintiffs’ failure to properly wear an appropriate available seatbelt restraint device."
The Walmart comment elicited a scathing response from Morgan, who released a statement on Monday excoriating the company for attempting to shift the blame. "I can't believe Walmart is blaming me for an accident that they caused," he said.
