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.

It takes a specific mindset, specialized skills and substantial resources. The types of cases we handle are not the average personal injury. They involve severe, permanent injuries to people that radically affect their lives forever, or in some instances, even cause their death.
