Comedian’s heirs to get $10 million from Wal-Mart

Comedian James McNair’s heirs were awarded $10 million in compensation after a truck accident, a March 20 article on Reuters reported.

According to reports, the amount of the settlement was revealed in the recent documents forwarded to Westchester County. McNair’s children Jamel and Danita are named as the recipients. McNair, 62, died on June 7 after the vehicle they were occupying was struck by a truck owned by Wal-Mart. The driver reportedly was awake for more than a day when the accident occurred. Other passengers, including well-known comedian Tracy Morgan, suffered serious injuries in the crash.

McNair’s sister weighed in on the ruling by saying, “There is no value, no dollar amount, on my brother’s life at all, but in terms of finances, it will assist the family a great deal.”
