As seen in many Illinois motorcycle accidents discussed in this site, many motorcycle crashes involve a loss of motorcycle control.

There can be many reasons why a motorcycle rider loses control of the motorcycle. If a crash happens after a loss of control, the injuries to the rider are often serious, if not life-threatening, in nature. These injuries tend to be especially serious if certain characteristics are present, such as the crash was a head-on collision or if the crash happened at a high speed.

Riding at a high speed is one of many “high-risk” actions. Other actions that significantly increase the potential for a serious accident which may cause extensive injuries to the motorcycle rider are discussed on the “High-Risk Motorcycle Actions” page.
