As discussed in the February 1, 2015 post (“Motorcycle Loss Of Control As An Accident Cause“) many accidents are caused by motorcyclists who lose control of their bikes. Many Illinois motorcycle accidents that cite “loss of control” as an accident cause are summarized within this site.
Recently, there have been two more motorcycle accidents, one in Illinois and one in Iowa resulting in a fatality, that cite loss of control. They are summarized in the following articles:
The underlying reasons for loss of control are various, and can include:
- Motorcycle defects
- Poorly maintained motorcycles
- Road hazards (such as gravel)
- Motorcyclist operating error
Often, loss of control of the motorcycle occurs when the motorcycle is vulnerable to instability, such as travel at high speed or taking a corner too quickly.
Additional information can be seen in the sources mentioned above.
