As discussed on the “Motorcycle Accident Injuries And Fatalities In Will County” page, motorcycle loss of control is one reason that can cause a motorcyclist to crash. Should this loss of control occur at higher speeds, which is often the case, injuries can be serious in nature and often are life-threatening.
There are many reasons why these loss of control crashes can occur. For example, a defective motorcycle part or component can cause or contribute to a crash. Another cause of loss of motorcycle control is if there is a tire blowout, which often leads to a crash. Tire blowouts on a motorcycle are particularly dangerous as high levels of instability can instantly occur. Often an accident investigation is needed to determine the cause of the loss of control.
As seen in many Illinois motorcycle accidents, in the year 2018 motorcycle loss of control has been a frequent cause of fatal Illinois motorcycle crashes.
