There are 10 newer model vehicles that are involved in the most car accidents in Missouri and the rest of the U.S., according to Insurify. For its data, the auto insurance comparison site analyzed over 1.6 million insurance quotes that specifically mention makes and models and if the vehicle in question was previously in a crash.
First was the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek, a vehicle that was awarded the top safety rating from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. This rating took into consideration factors like crash avoidance and crashworthiness. Yet it should be noted that Crosstrek occupants are often able to walk from crashes with no injuries. Another point to remember is that Insurify’s list is concerned with at-fault crashes.
Accidents have affected 25.81% of all Subaru Crosstreks. This was followed by the 25.7% rate for Honda HR-Vs. Third on the list was the Hyundai Elantra GT. Hyundai has a second vehicle in 10th place, the Santa Fe Sport. Numbers four to nine are the Infiniti Q50, Subaru WRX, Mazda3, Acura ILX, Lexus CT and Chevrolet Trax.
The Subaru WRX has achieved some notoriety as it is the vehicle with the highest proportion of speeding offenses. The Chevrolet Trax is the only U.S. vehicle on the list. In all, seven are Japanese and two Korean.
When a car accident arises, one of the first questions will be who is at fault. The innocent victim of a crash may be able to file a claim against the other party’s auto insurance company in the effort to be reimbursed for economic and non-economic damages. These can include medical expenses, rehabilitative care, lost wages, disability leave and pain and suffering. No matter the scope of the case, a plaintiff may want a lawyer to handle the negation.
