Subaru Crosstreks are at fault for 25.81% of all auto accidents that take place in Florida and the rest of the U.S., according to a survey from Insurify. The Crosstrek is responsible for more crashes than any other vehicle. The auto insurance comparison site has revealed nine other vehicles that cause a disproportionate number of accidents.
The Honda HR-V, the second vehicle on the list, is involved in 25.7% of car crashes. It should be mentioned that auto accidents affect 13.64% of all vehicle models on the road. The Hyundai Elantra GT ranked third followed by the Infiniti Q50 and Subaru WRX. The latter is known for having the highest proportion of speeding offenses of any vehicle.
After those vehicles came the Mazda3; the Acura ILX; the Lexus CT; and the only vehicle from the U.S., the Chevrolet Trax. The list was rounded out by another Hyundai car, the Santa Fe Sport. Of the nine imports, seven are Japanese, and two Korean.
It is surprising that the Crosstrek is at the top of the list because the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety gave it the highest safety ratings, which address both crashworthiness and crash avoidance. Yet one positive aspect is that the majority of crashes do not end badly for occupants of the Crosstrek.
In the event of an auto accident, the side that is not at fault may pursue a personal injury case. Under this state’s rule of pure comparative negligence, individuals who are at fault for a certain percentage of the crash will have any damages that they recover lowered by that percentage. To ensure the maximum possible settlement, victims may want a lawyer to speak on their behalf at the negotiation table and, if necessary, in the courtroom. An attorney may also hire third parties to gather the necessary evidence.
