Using a database of more than 1.6 million insurance quotes, Insurify has been able to identify 10 newer vehicles that are involved in the most at-fault crashes in South Carolina and across the U.S. The auto insurance comparison site found that accidents affect 13.64% of these 10 models altogether. At number one, with a percentage of 25.81%, was the Subaru Crosstrek.
Interestingly enough, the 2019 Crosstrek was awarded the highest possible safety rating for crash avoidance and crashworthiness by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. Though accidents are frequent, both drivers and passengers are able to walk away without major injuries in most cases. That the Crosstrek is affordable and fuel-efficient may offset some concerns that the readers of Insurify might feel.
In second place, with a percentage of 25.7%, was the Honda HR-V. After this came the Hyundai Elantra GT, the Infiniti Q50 and Subaru’s second vehicle on the list, the WRX. This vehicle sees the highest percentage of drivers who are pulled over for speeding offenses. The list goes on with the Mazda3, Acura ILX, Lexus CT and Chevrolet Trax, the sole American entry. It ends with another entry from Hyundai, the Santa Fe Sport. Seven of the imports are Japanese, and two are Korean.
Those who drive any of these vehicles should not feel too apprehensive because they may be able to avoid most accidents as long as they are the ones who are driving responsibly. When negligence comes into play in a car accident, it can open up the possibility of a claim under personal injury law. The injured party may recover damages if he or she was less to blame than the defendant. No matter how clear-cut a case seems to be, victims may want a lawyer to assist them because filing can be a complicated process.
