Tracy Morgan’s Lawyer Says He Is Suffering From Severe Brain Injury
Tracy Morgan’s lawyer is speaking out about the actor’s current condition -- the result of a deadly traffic collision that took place earlier this year -- and things may not be looking so great.
Despite earlier reports that Tracy’s injuries, while serious, were no more than broken bones, it looks like the damage is far more extensive, as his lawyer claims the actor is suffering from a "severe brain injury.”
Tracy’s attorney, Benedict Morelli, said via NJ.com: “Mr. Morgan is a fighter. He's fighting to get better. And if there's a chance for him to be back to the Tracy Morgan he once was, he's going to try to do that. But we just don't know because of the severity of the injuries that he sustained and the fact that he had such a severe brain injury.”
Morelli later continued: "When you have a traumatic brain injury, it takes a very long time to find out how you're going to do and how much you're going to recover," he said. "You just don't know. So that's where he is. He's still fighting and trying to live his life at the same time and trying to get better, and he's just not better. We're hoping and praying to get him back to where he was. But the jury's out."
We're wishing Tracy a safe, full recovery. Our thoughts go out to his family during this difficult time.
