Insurify, the vehicle insurance comparison site with a database of more than 1.6 million insurance claims, has come out with a list of 10 vehicles that are involved in the most accidents in Louisiana and the rest of the U.S. At the top of the list is the Subaru Crosstrek.
The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety had given the 2019 Crosstrek the highest possible safety grade. Fortunately, many of the accidents that the Crosstrek is involved in are minor. The vehicle is also fuel-efficient and not so costly. Still, Insurify called it the most accident-prone vehicle as 25.81% Crosstreks have been in accidents.
Accidents involve 25.7% of Honda HR-Vs, putting this vehicle at No. 2. Third was the Hyundai Elantra GT. At No. 10 was another Hyundai vehicle, the Santa Fe Sport. Numbers four to eight were the Infiniti Q50, Subaru WRX, Mazda3, Acura ILX and Lexus CT. America’s only vehicle to make the list, the Chevrolet Trax, came in at No. 9.
Nine are imports, with seven being from Japan. Despite the Crosstrek coming in at No. 1, other cars throughout history have had a far worse record when it comes to accidents, especially fatal collisions. In all, 13.64% of vehicles on the road today have been involved in accidents.
Should there be a car accident that results in injuries, a victim may consider filing a personal injury claim. If the case holds up under Louisiana’s rule of comparative negligence, the victim could be reimbursed for medical costs, rehabilitative care, lost wages and more. This is where having legal representation might come in handy. A lawyer could gather evidence and take on negotiations for a settlement.
