NEW YORK, June 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The New York Daily News provided an update on the status of famous actor Tracy Morgan, who suffered serious injuries and the loss of a close friend in a car accident last year. ("Tracy Morgan Says He's Healing, Still Grieving for Lost Pal, Jimmy Mack: 'The Pain is Always Going to be There'", June 1, 2015). Mr. Morgan expressed his disbelief that he was still alive and that he was physically recovering well. Mr. Morgan, who still had visible scars and walked with a cane, added that he will never get over the loss of his close friend and mentor, Jimmy Mack.
Mr. Morgan and Mr. Mack were riding together on the New Jersey Turnpike in June of 2014 when they were struck by a Walmart truck that was speeding and being driven by a driver who was allegedly over or near his allotted hours for the day. Mr. Morgan did not discuss the details of the settlement with the commercial giant Walmart, as they are confidential however he did express his gratitude that the suit was not dragged out and that his friend's family was taken care of.
"This appears to be a case where the company liable for an accident really stepped up and took responsibility," said Adnan Munawar, Partner at Munawar & Andrews-Santillo LLP. "I would not be surprised if Mr. Morgan had a top-notch lawyer by his side, but if the facts are true as reported, there hopefully was not a whole lot to argue about. We express our condolences to all those affected by the accident and hope they can now work on moving forward."
"While Mr. Morgan almost certainly already had an attorney, the average person involved in an accident may not have a lawyer's number in their phone. The reality is that every second counts in an accident, and the sooner you speak with an expert who can guide you through the process, the better off you will be. It is not as intimidating as it may seem, and nearly everyone can afford quality representation, as the consultation is free and you only pay a fee when you collect. Having the right attorney by your side can not only help you collect the compensation you need and deserve more quickly, as the case seems to suggest with Mr. Morgan, but it also allows you to focus on your recovery knowing that a zealous expert is standing up for your rights."
