    Any legal eagles have an idea what a case like this is worth?

    Tracy Morgan has reached a settlement with Walmart, and says he's satisfied with how the corporation took care of him financially after the accident that left him severely injured.

    Tracy's attorney and Walmart's attorneys announced the settlement, but said terms of the deal would remain under wraps. Whatever they paid, Tracy's happy with it ... saying, "Walmart did right by me and my family, and for my associates and their families."

    He added, "I am grateful that the case was resolved amicably."

    Walmart also settled with two of the other passengers, Ardie Fuqua and Jeffrey Millea, and settled with the family of James McNair, who died in the crash involving Tracy's limousine van and the Walmart 18-wheeler.

    He shoulda sued the NJ Turnpike Commission and the company doing the construction also. That is where the real money would be. They had 3 lanes of 65MPH traffic (most doing 75-89) merging down into one lane, w/ only 2 signs notifying the drivers, 1 of which was usually 1/4 mile into the back up. I almost had the same accident that truck driver did, but I was driving a mini van, so my breaking distance was probably 1/10th of his and I stopped in time.

    ...its really hard to get the state to admit to liability. i watched this strippers trial in vegas who ran down a bunch of kids picking up garbage on the side of the freeway for pot violations and such. the state had NO signs warning drivers a clean up crew was working ahead. the state threw the book at her and accepted no responsibility for lack of warning signs.

    I hear ya, but now that Tracy and his attorneys have the Walmart money in pocket, they have the backing to go after the state.
