The accident, which occurred in June 2014, seriously injured the comedian and three other passengers.

12 Months Later Morgan Still Healing
The accident occurred as the comedian was returning from a comedy show in Delaware with other performers. Morgan suffered a traumatic brain injury, a broken leg and broken ribs when the truck crashed into his vehicle. The crash put Morgan into a coma and two of Morgan’s friends were also seriously injured in the accident. His fellow performer and friend James “Jimmy Mack” McNair was killed.
The accident on the New Jersey Turnpike involved six vehicles, including the Wal-Mart truck that crashed into Morgan’s vehicle. Several lawsuits were filed against Wal-Mart. According to a media report, Morgan has stated that he will return to comedy, but his current goal is healing and getting better.
Injured Drivers or Passengers May Be Entitled to Compensation
People who are injured in car accidents that are caused by another person’s negligence may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of income or ability to work.
If a person is killed in an accident caused by another’s negligence, his or her family members may be able to pursue claims for the wrongful death of a loved one. Wrongful death compensation may include:
- Medical expenses attributable to a fatal injury
- Pain and suffering from the loss of a loved one
- Funeral expenses
Car accidents often present complicated issues, such as determining all potential responsible parties, and negotiating fair and reasonable compensation for injuries and other damages is likewise often difficult. People who have been injured in a car accident are advised to seek the counsel of a New York car accident attorney.
