Motorcycle accidents can happen for many reasons. A discussion of these reasons is seen on the “Reasons For Illinois Motorcycle Accident Injuries And Fatalities” page.

An excerpt:

Riding motorcycles is popular in Illinois for a variety of reasons.  However, due to many factors, riding a motorcycle often entails risks.  As seen in various Illinois motorcycle accident statistics, the level of fatal motorcycle accidents remains at historically high levels; as well, there are far more motorcycle accidents which involve non-fatal accident injuries.  As further discussed below, many of these non-fatal injuries can be very serious in nature and lead to a range of permanent accident injuries and various types of temporary and permanent physical and mental impairments.

While, as discussed on that page, there are many reasons for such crashes, one primary reason is motorcycle loss of control. These loss of control accidents can be caused by many reasons. Another primary reasons for a motorcycle accident is when a motorist “does not see” a motorcycle, and collides with it. Often, this is when the motorist is attempting to make a left-hand turn immediately in the path of an oncoming motorcycle.
