Discussion of motorcycle loss of control accidents can be seen on the “Motorcycle Loss Of Control Accidents” page. This accident cause is among the leading causes of Illinois motorcycle accidents. Many motorcycle accidents – especially in 2019 – have been attributed to the motorcyclist losing control of the motorcycle. As seen in the Southern Illinois motorcycle accidents summarized on this site, a high percentage of such crashes have led to serious injuries or fatalities.

As seen on that “loss of control” page, there can be many reasons why a rider can lose control of the bike. Traveling at excessive speed can present many risks. Many modern-era motorcycles can reach very high speeds quickly. Depending on the circumstances riding at high speeds can increase the likelihood of not only a crash, but also of incurring serious, if not life-threatening, accident injuries.
