Lack of Escape Hatch Contributes to Tractor Operator’s Death

Semi-truck accident

Stewart Eisenberg, Esq., Nancy Winkler, Esq., and Daniel Sherry, Jr., Esq., recently initiated a product liability case against a major trucking company and a commercial tractor manufacturer regarding a man’s tragic death. A low-speed, frontal collision caused a tractor to immediately catch fire, and three eyewitnesses watched the entrapped and conscious tractor operator burn to death. This product liability case includes allegations that the tractor lacked a critical escape hatch.
