In Kentucky and across the U.S., many newer-model vehicles are getting into accidents. Insurify, an auto insurance comparison site with a database of over 1.6 million insurance quotes, has compiled a list of 10 newer vehicles that are involved in the most at-fault crashes. At the top is the 2019 Subaru Crosstrek, a car that was a top safety pick of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. This means it has top ratings for crash avoidance and crashworthiness.
In all, 13.64% of the vehicles on the Insurify list were impacted by car crashes. As for the Crosstrek, 25.81% of these vehicles have been involved in crashes. The high safety rating is reflected, though, in the fact that many of these crashes do not prove serious for occupants of the Crosstrek. Second on the list is the Honda HR-V, 25.7% of which were affected by accidents.
The list continues with the Hyundai Elantra GT, Infiniti Q50, Subaru WRX, Mazda3, Acura ILX, Lexus CT and Chevrolet Trax. This last vehicle is the only American one on the list. Coming in at number 10 is a second Hyundai vehicle, the Santa Fe Sport. It should be noted that Subaru’s other car on the list, the WRX, is linked with more speeding offenses than any other car.
Speeding, distracted driving, drowsy driving: There are numerous ways that drivers can become negligent behind the wheel. Those who are not to blame for their injuries in a motor vehicle accident have the ability to file a claim and be reimbursed for medical costs, lost wages, vehicle repairs and more. Their success may largely depend on whether they have legal representation, so victims may want to have a lawyer evaluate their case. If retained, the lawyer may be able to negotiate for a fair settlement.
