Many Illinois motorcycle accidents – including those that cause fatalities like the fatal St. Charles motorcycle crash summarized above – involve a motorcycle loss of control. These loss of control accidents have been frequent in 2018 and so far in 2019. As discussed on the “Motorcycle Loss Of Control Accidents” page, a rider can lose control of the motorcycle for many reasons. Among these reasons are those that involve the actions of the rider (such as riding at excessive speed or rider error.) Many other reasons are outside of the scope of the rider’s actions, such as dangerous road hazards that may cause the motorcycle to become unstable and crash. Other factors, such as a mechanical failure or a sudden tire blowout can also cause the motorcycle to crash. Due to the fact that many crashes caused by loss of motorcycle control occur at significant speeds, resulting rider injuries tend to be serious if not life-threatening in nature.

Many Illinois motorcycle accidents – including those that cause fatalities – involve a motorcycle loss of control. As discussed on the “Motorcycle Loss Of Control Accidents” page, such instances of loss of motorcycle control can occur for many reasons. One factor that can increase the likelihood of a motorcycle becoming unstable and crashing is riding at excessive speed, or riding too fast for conditions. Another common reason for loss of bike control is riding too fast going into a curve.

An excerpt from the aforementioned page concerning riding too fast going into a curve:

Operating a motorcycle too fast for conditions is often problematical from a control standpoint, and such excess speed is especially perilous when going into a corner.  Motorcyclists should be mindful of their speeds, especially when going into a corner.  This is especially so when riding on unfamiliar routes, where curves may be much sharper than one might expect.

Route 59 Motorcycle Crash In Aurora Near Meridian Parkway

A Route 59 motorcycle crash happened in Aurora on Saturday (May 18, 2019) night. Details concerning this Route 59 motorcycle crash appear to be limited at this time.

According to police, the crash happened on Route 59 near Meridian Parkway.

An excerpt regarding this Route 59 motorcycle crash, from the May 18, 2019 Daily Herald article titled “Aurora motorcycle crash causes lane closures on Route 59“:

A motorcyclist hit a pole in a crash that did not appear to be fatal, according to tweets from the Aurora Police Department. The accident shut down southbound traffic on Route 59 at North Aurora Road and northbound traffic on Route 59 at Liberty Street/Jefferson Avenue, police said.

Additional details regarding this Kane County motorcycle crash can be seen in various media sources, including the article mentioned above.

A common cause of single-vehicle motorcycle wrecks that involve the motorcycle crashing into a fixed object or the motorcyclist being ejected from the bike is loss of motorcycle control. As discussed on the “Motorcycle Loss Of Control Accidents” page, there can be many reasons as to why a motorcyclist loses control of the bike. While some of these reasons, such as rider error, are the fault of the motorcycle rider, other reasons are beyond the rider’s control. Among these issues that may be outside the rider’s control are sudden, unexpected road hazards, such as road debris that when hit by a motorcycle can cause instability that leads to a crash.

Motorcycle loss of control remains a leading cause of Illinois motorcycle crashes that cause injury, including those that lead to the death of the motorcyclist. Accident injuries are often serious in nature, i.e. those that lead to (extensive) hospitalization and, for those that are non-fatal in nature, possible temporary and permanent impairments.

Motorcycle Grove Motorcycle Accident Later Led To Rider Passing Away

A Morton Grove motorcycle accident that occurred on April 25, 2019 was summarized in the “Morton Grove Motorcycle Collision With Vehicle On Dempster Street” post. As seen in that post, this Morton Grove motorcycle accident allegedly involved a vehicle that attempted to make a left-hand turn in front of an oncoming motorcycle. A collision ensued between the vehicle and motorcycle. The motorcyclist was critically injured due to the crash.

According to the May 17, 2019 Chicago Sun-Times article titled “Naperville motorcyclist dies weeks after Morton Grove crash” the injured motorcyclist died from accident injuries on Wednesday, May 15, 2019. The rider was identified as Andrew Clark, 48, of Naperville.

As seen in the article, this Morton Grove motorcycle accident involved a “head-on collision” between the motorcycle and vehicle. These types of collisions are typical when a vehicle attempts to make a left-hand turn in front of an oncoming motorcycle. As discussed on the “‘Head-On Collisions’ Involving Motorcycles” page, there are many reasons as to why these collisions often lead to serious, if not life-threatening accident injuries to the motorcycle rider, and if applicable, passenger.

Due to the severity of injuries resulting from such crashes, riders who survive such crashes often seek to get compensation for their accident injuries. Due to the severity of such injuries, extensive hospitalization is often involved, which typically involves emergency care, extensive testing, possible surgeries, and possibly a protracted hospital stay. There are also other forms of care needed, such as various types of rehabilitation. Given this level of medical care, medical bills are likely to be high, even for those who have good insurance. A personal injury lawsuit can seek to get compensation for these medical bills, as well as types of compensation for other harm and financial adversity that has occurred.

The topic of personal injury lawsuits for motorcycle accidents is further discussed on the “Reasons For Filing A Motorcycle Accident Injury Lawsuit” page.

If the motorcycle accident was the fault of another person or entity, and it resulted in the death of motorcyclist or motorcycle passenger, relevant parties may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Those types of lawsuits are further discussed on the “Motorcycle Accident Wrongful Death Lawsuits” page.
