Tracy Morgan's lawyer says the funnyman is struggling more than two months after he was injured in a motor vehicle crash that left a fellow comedian dead.

Attorney Benedict Morelli told NBC's "Today" show Monday the former "Saturday Night Live" and "30 Rock" cast member is fighting hard.

Morgan, 45, suffered a broken leg and broken ribs when the limousine van he was riding in was hit from behind June 7 by a Wal-Mart truck on the New Jersey Turnpike.

The wreck killed 62-year-old comedian James McNair and injured two others.

Morelli has filed suit against Wal-Mart, claiming the retailer should have known the truck driver had driven 700 miles from his home in Georgia to work in Delaware.

The truck driver has pleaded not guilty to death by auto and assault by auto charges.
