There can be many reasons for loss of motorcycle control. These reasons are further discussed on the “Motorcycle Loss Of Control Accidents” page. Motorcycle loss of control remains a significant hazard to riders. This issue has led to a high percentage of fatal Illinois motorcycle accidents, many of which have been summarized on this site.
An excerpt from the loss of control page:
Road hazards, if hit, can cause loss of control. Such road hazards can be in numerous forms, and can present themselves suddenly. Often, such road hazards can include large potholes or other types of substantial pavement abnormalities. Another type of road hazard includes debris, which can be especially hazardous if substantial. Often such debris may be from other vehicles, such as tires or tire treads. Dropped cargo from trucks and cars can also be problematical.
