St. Paul Truck Accident Attorneys
Trucks over 10,000 pounds (semis and tractor-trailer) represent only 3% of all registered vehicles but are responsible for more than 25% of vehicle-related deaths. Many of the semi trucks on Minnesota roads are well over 20,000 pounds (80,000 is the federal limit).
Semi-Truck Accident Lawyers Helping Injured Drivers
When a car is struck by a semi or tractor-trailer, the result is often tragic, resulting in either fatalities or catastrophic injuries which will have a lifelong impact on the individual and the family. At Bennerotte & Associates, P.A., we understand the emotional strain these accidents place on victims and family members.
The most common causes of commercial semi-truck accidents are as follows:

- Overworked truck drivers (too many hours on the road)
- Aggressive or reckless drivers
- Excessive speeds by the tractor-trailer operators
- Drivers who fall asleep at the wheel
- Overloaded or overweight semi trucks
