Homestead Losing Control on Turns
One common type of motorcycle accident in Homestead occurs when a motorcyclist loses control on turns. When motorcyclists make a turn, they have to lean slightly into the turn, but many things can go wrong that can lead to a spin out and losing of control. This situation can quickly become very dangerous, as the driver slides into the turn and slides across the road.

There are many reasons why a motorcyclist may lose control and turn:
- A manufacturing flaw or tire defect could cause the motorcycle to tip
- The motorcyclist may swerve to avoid a car or an accident, leading to losing control
- Poor road conditions and potholes can interfere with the turn
- Poor road design may mean that there is not enough room to make the turn safely
- A car may block or crowd the motorcyclist, leading the motorcyclist to lean too far
- Motorcycles are vulnerable on turns because riders must lean into the turns
- Weather conditions can negatively impact a turn
- Fatigue, illness, distraction or other issues can lead to rider errors
These types of accidents often result in catastrophic injuries since there's often very little to protect the motorcyclist other than a jacket and a helmet. Unfortunately, when motorcyclists lose control on turns, they can become pinned underneath the weight of their motorcycle or they can go into a long slide or crash into a stationary object while trying to complete their turn. This can lead to many catastrophic injuries, including:
- Head injuries
- Facial injuries
- Eye injuries
- Soft tissue injuries
- Internal injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
