Schaumburg Motorcycle Accident Lawyers
Motorcyclists and passengers in the Schaumburg, Illinois area enjoy taking the scenic adventurous motorcycle ride known as "Baby Face Nelson's Last Day" trail. The trip starts in downtown Barrington along Scenic Route 47/14, heading west before turning north at Woodstock.
The route travels through Hebron and across the Wisconsin border, becoming State Route 120, where it passes along the eastern edge of Big Foot Beach State Park just east of Geneva Lake. Bikers then travel into the city of Lake Geneva and turn left heading west on state Route 50 only a few miles before reaching Red Chimney Road. Turn north and go two miles to the Wakefield Euro Cuisine and Speakeasy on Lake Como.
The first part of the ride out of Barrington takes bikers and passengers along beautiful farmland and small community towns. The famous historical marker positioned at the Wisconsin-Illinois state line brings visitors to the exact spot where the FBI confronted and captured Baby Face Nelson in 1937. The shops, restaurants, hotels, and bed and breakfast inns make it the ideal location to shop, eat, drink, and enjoy the beautiful community and scenic lake.
The quality of the roadway on state roads 47, 14, 120, and 50 can become congested at times. Bikers and passengers are cautioned to remain alert even while traveling on the open roadway.
Recent Schaumburg Motorcycle Accidents
There is nothing in the world that provides freedom and enjoyable sensation as riding a motorcycle in the open air. However, truckers and passenger vehicle motorists are not always good at sharing the roadway with bikers, bicyclists, and pedestrians. Many times, distracted driving or a motorist's inappropriate behavior leads to hazardous, dangerous, and deadly situations.
The Illinois motorcycle accident attorneys at Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers LLC remind motorcyclists of the dangerous roadways in northern Illinois. Recent serious motorcycle accidents around the Schaumburg area include:
- In August 2018, a nineteen-year-old biker lost his life after colliding with the school bus at Irving Park and Rodenberg roads. There were no children on the school bus at the time of the accident. EMTs transported the motorcycle accident victim to Alexian Brothers Medical Center in Elk Grove Village. He succumbed to his injuries about one hour later after the accident occurred.
- In July 2014, a motorcyclist lost his life in a wrongful death collision with an automobile at the intersection of Hartford Drive and Roselle Road in Schaumburg. The biker was found by Schaumburg law enforcement, paramedics, and firefighters lying off the roadway at the intersection's northeast corner. The auto accident involved a four-door sedan that collided with the bike, causing the rider to be ejected from the motorcycle. The lone female occupant in the automobile suffered only minor injuries and was transported to Hoffman Estates St. Alexius Medical Center.
- In July 2014, a 23-year-old Hoffman Estates man lost his life in a motorcycle accident in Schaumburg after colliding with an automobile. The accident occurred at Roselle Road and Hartford Drive, the same intersection as the incident above. The accident victim suffered only minor injuries and was transported to the local hospital.
According to statistics maintained by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), over 4900 motorcyclists died in crashes in 2018. Many of these accidents could have been avoided had other motor sharing the roadway remain alert while driving.
Some motorcyclist fatalities were the result of not wearing proper protection while riding their bike or failure to use a helmet. Others died in the crash because of irresponsible riding by taking unnecessary risks. Others are riding while impaired under the influence of drugs or alcohol, where they can quickly lose their balance, coordination, judgment, throttle control, or the control needed to shift years.
