As seen in the Will County motorcycle accidents that are summarized on this site, many have resulted in serious accident injuries, and in some cases fatalities, to the motorcyclist and/or motorcycle passenger. While there are many reasons for these accidents, one main reason is loss of control of the motorcycle. These loss of motorcycle control crashes can happen for a number of reasons. While some loss of control issues are the fault of the motorcycle rider, other loss of control problems can be caused by factors outside of the rider’s control. As an example, a road hazard can cause the motorcycle to lose stability that can result in a crash. While there are many types of road hazards, one type of road hazard is a foreign object on the roadway. Often, these objects may be cargo that has fallen from another vehicle, or road debris such as a discarded tire tread from a semi truck.
