Categorized as Auto Accidents

Dutchtown, MO (November 12, 2021) – On November 10, at around 2:26 p.m., the Missouri State Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a motor vehicle accident that left one man with moderate injuries.

Reports from MSHP Trooper D. M. Wyatt show that a 1997 GMC 1500 was making a left turn at the intersection of Highway 25 and Highway A when it collided with a 1995 Harley Davidson motorcycle.

The motorcyclist, 65-year-old Joseph Arnzen, sustained moderate injuries in the accident. He was transported by EMS to St. Francis Hospital in Cape Girardeau for emergency medical care.

At this time, the incident remains under investigation.

Our thoughts are with Joseph Arnzen and his family at this time. We hope for his full recovery.

Motorcycle Accidents in Missouri

Each year, more than 55,000 people are hurt in crashes throughout the state of Missouri. Here in Dutchtown, we see many people hospitalized with injuries that impact their health and wellbeing. Motorcyclists are more likely to suffer severe injuries in accidents due to the fact that they have little more than helmets to protect them during crashes. Broken arms, burn injuries, and evening internal organ damages are incredibly painful injuries. They are also very costly to treat.

In many instances, victims are left with severe injuries that drastically limit their abilities and require immediate and long-term care. Dealing with painful injuries is only made worse by the financial consequences that impact both victims and their families.

In cases where people sustain injuries in crashes, due to the negligence of other motorists, they are often able to recover financial compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and various other damages. When victims are hurt in accidents, due to the negligence of other motorists, they often have legal options available to help them recover.  Working with a trusted and competent motorcycle accident lawyer in Dutchtwon can help to ensure you are able to get the maximum amount of compensation available to you.
