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.
