Some cars deadlier than others

In 2017, 37,133 Americans were killed in traffic accidents across the nation, according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The accident rate is high even though new vehicles sold in New York and elsewhere have more air bags and accident avoidance technology than ever before. However, a report by iSeeCars.com found that some vehicles are racking up more fatalities than others.

The car search site analyzed statistics from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Fatality Reporting System and discovered that 14 vehicles manufactured between 2013 and 2017 have crash rates at least two times higher than the national average, which is 2.6 fatalities per 1 billion driven miles. Many readers won’t be surprised to learn that these vehicles are all subcompact cars or sports coupes.

The Mitsubishi Mirage was the car with the worst fatal car crash rate, racking up 10.2 deadly accidents per 1 billion miles driven. The Chevrolet Corvette was the second worst with 9.8 deadly accidents per 1 billion miles driven, and the Honda Fit was the third worst with 7.7 deadly accidents per 1 billion miles driven. The Kia Forte, the Chevrolet Spark and the Subaru BRZ were next on the list with 7.4, 7.2 and 6.9 deadly accidents per 1 billion driven miles, respectively. Finally, the Nissan 370Z, the Nissan Versa, the Kia Rio, the Dodge Challenger, the Chevrolet Camaro, the Kia Soul, the Hyundai Veloster Turbo and the Nissan Versa Note rounded out the list with deadly accident rates ranging from 6.2 to 5.2 fatal crashes per 1 billion miles driven.

Victims of motor vehicle accidents caused by other drivers might have a strong personal injury claim. By contacting an attorney familiar with car crash claims, injured victims may have their case assessed and learn more about their legal options.
