The roads in Antioch can be hazardous for even the most experienced motorcycle rider, no matter how safely they operate their bike. For example, a motorcycle crash involving a sedan on Lone Tree Way back in May of 2017. When first responders arrived on the scene, they found a male motorcycle rider lying in the road. According to the Antioch Police Department, it appeared that the motorcycle was struck by the sedan, which remained on the scene. Upon initial investigation at the scene, it did not look like drugs or alcohol played a role in the crash.
More dangerous intersections throughout the city of Antioch include the following:
- 18th St and A St
- Lone Tree Way and Golf Course Road
- Black Diamond Drive and Lone Tree Way
- Mesa Ridge Drive and Golf Course Road
- James Donlon Boulevard and Somersville Road

Inattentive drivers, inclement weather, animals, debris, and other road hazards are all possible causes of motorcycle accidents in California. The city of Antioch could be held liable for a motorcycle accident caused by roads that have not been appropriately cared for in the city limits. If the accident was caused by another driver's negligence, they could be found liable for the injuries suffered and damages incurred.

Every motorcycle accident in Antioch is different from the last. Even with the differences in circumstances and causes, riders' injuries can be very similar. This is because the body has no protection like it does when in a car or truck. Depending on how severe your injury is, you could find yourself out of work for months after a motorcycle accident. Aside from damages, you will likely also find yourself with debt due to medical expenses. Motorcycle accident injuries can lead to paralysis, long-term care, long-term disability, and more. The most common motorcycle accident injuries include:
- Neck damage
- Road rash (burns)
- Traumatic injuries
- Cervical Sprain more commonly referred to as Whiplash
- Loss of limb
- Spinal cord injuries
