The Subaru Crosstrek is involved in more at-fault crashes than any other newer model vehicle in the U.S. This is according to a survey from Insurify, a vehicle insurance comparison site with a database of over 1.6 million insurance quotes. In fact, Insurify has compiled a list of the top 10 vehicles that get into accidents in New York and the rest of the nation.
The ironic thing about the Subaru Crosstrek reaching No. 1 is that its 2019 model received the highest possible safety grade from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety. Specifically, Insurify found that accidents have affected 25.81% of all the Crosstreks on the road.
Fortunately, many of the accidents that involve the Crosstrek do not end in serious injuries. Most drivers and passengers are able to walk away from the collisions. That the Crosstrek is fuel-efficient as well as relatively inexpensive also speaks in its favor.
The Insurify list continues with the Honda HR-V (25.7%), Hyundai Elantra GT and Infiniti Q50. In fourth place is another Subaru vehicle, the Subaru WRX. This is followed by the Mazda3, Acura ILX, Lexus CT and America's one car on the list, the Chevrolet Trax. The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport rounds out the list.
There are many ways a driver can be at fault for a motor vehicle crash. Drowsy, drunk and distracted driving are just three common reasons. When a crash victim finds that the other side was negligent, they could file a personal injury claim. However, they may want legal representation just in case they meet with opposition from the other side. A lawyer could prepare the case with evidence gathered by third-party investigators and even handle all negotiations for an out-of-court settlement.
