Insurify, an auto insurance comparison site, has analyzed more than 1.6 million insurance quotes in order to find out which vehicle models are involved in the most at-fault crashes in Wyoming and across the U.S. It compiled a list of 10 vehicles, nine of which are imports: seven from Japan and two from Korea. At the top of the list was the Subaru Crosstrek.
The Insurance Institute of Highway Safety has given the 2019 Crosstrek the highest possible rating for crash avoidance and crashworthiness, so the finding is a startling one. Analysts stated that accidents have affected 25.81% of all Crosstreks on the road. Overall, they have affected 13.64% of the 10 vehicles listed. Still, analysts point out that other notable cars in the past have had a far worse crash record.
Because it is one of the safer cars on the road, the Crosstrek does not, in most accidents, land its drivers and passengers in the hospital. Its excellent fuel economy and relatively inexpensive price have also made it attractive.
Second on Insurify’s list was the Honda HR-V with accidents impacting 25.7% of these models. The list continues with the Hyundai Elantra GT, Infiniti Q50, Subaru WRX, Mazda3, Acura ILX, Lexus CT, Chevrolet Trax and Hyundai Santa Fe Sport.
If distracted driving, drowsy driving or speeding is behind a crash, then it should be clear who was at fault. In such cases, those who were not to blame for their injuries may seek compensation from the at-fault driver’s insurance company, but they may want a lawyer to assist them. In Wyoming, one can recover damages as long as one shares less than 50% of the fault. Any degree of fault will, of course, lower the amount one recovers, but a lawyer may be able to negotiate for a fair settlement.
