Many Kane County motorcycle accidents – including those that cause fatalities like the fatal St. Charles motorcycle crash summarized above – involve a motorcycle loss of control. These loss of control accidents have been frequent in 2018 and so far in 2019. As discussed on the “Motorcycle Loss Of Control Accidents” page, a rider can lose control of the motorcycle for many reasons. Among these reasons are those that involve the actions of the rider (such as riding at excessive speed or rider error.) Many other reasons are outside of the scope of the rider’s actions, such as dangerous road hazards that may cause the motorcycle to become unstable and crash. Other factors, such as a mechanical failure or a sudden tire blowout can also cause the motorcycle to crash. Due to the fact that many crashes caused by loss of motorcycle control occur at significant speeds, resulting rider injuries tend to be serious if not life-threatening in nature.

A common cause of single-vehicle motorcycle wrecks that involve the motorcycle crashing into a fixed object or the motorcyclist being ejected from the bike is loss of motorcycle control. As discussed on the “Motorcycle Accident Injuries And Fatalities That Occur In Kane County” page, there can be many reasons as to why a motorcyclist loses control of the bike. While some of these reasons, such as rider error, are the fault of the motorcycle rider, other reasons are beyond the rider’s control. Among these issues that may be outside the rider’s control are sudden, unexpected road hazards, such as road debris that when hit by a motorcycle can cause instability that leads to a crash.

Motorcycle loss of control remains a leading cause of Illinois motorcycle crashes that cause injury, including those that lead to the death of the motorcyclist. Accident injuries are often serious in nature, i.e. those that lead to (extensive) hospitalization and, for those that are non-fatal in nature, possible temporary and permanent impairments.

Kane County Motorcycle Accidents

Kane County motorcycle accidents as well as motorcycle crashes throughout Illinois are discussed in the May 1, 2019 Kane County Connects post titled “119 Fatal Motorcycle Crashes Last Year In Illinois.” Notable excerpts from the post, which in addition to bike crashes also provides safety tips, include:

In 2018, 119 people died in Illinois motorcycle crashes.

In Kane County, we saw seven motorcycle at least fatalities in a matter of a few weeks in 2016 — and we know, with the weather about to change for the better, that there’s a strong likelihood we’ll see more deaths here soon.

also:

All riders are urged to take precautions to increase their visibility. Recommendations include wearing appropriate protective gear, performing regular maintenance checks and enrolling in IDOT’s free motorcycle safety courses to learn or brush up on riding skills.

On this site, many Kane County motorcycle accidents that have resulted in injuries and deaths have been summarized in posts found under the “Motorcycle Accidents” category. As seen in those posts, while these crashes and collisions have occurred for many different reasons, typically the motorcyclist (and, if applicable, passenger) sustain serious accident injuries. Some of these injuries prove to be life-threatening in nature, and in some cases have led to fatalities.

If the crash injuries are non-fatal in nature, there can be substantial medical bills and other financial hardships, including temporary or permanent lost income, that can occur due to the injuries. In instances where the accident is the fault of another person, injured motorcyclists often will seek to file a personal injury lawsuit to get compensation for the injuries and consequences arising from them, such as temporary or permanent impairments and/or disabilities.

In cases where the motorcyclist is killed in the accident, and the accident is the fault of another person or party, relevant parties can file a wrongful death lawsuit.
