Guide to worst cars for passenger related claims

Suffering a car crash is bad enough, but wondering if your injuries would be reduced in a different car can really play on the mind. Everyone knows hindsight is 20/20, but if you are in the position of shopping for a new car now, make hindsight foresight and put safety first – for you and your passengers. Being injured in a road traffic accident can be very serious and even fatal, so best to avoid the worst cars.

Generally speaking, different cars won’t prevent a road traffic accident from occurring, but they can affect the extent of any injuries. According to a recent study by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the Fiat 500 is the most dangerous car and hence one of the worst cars to crash in. The conclusion was based on payouts to injured passengers from insurance premiums.

Data regarding the worst cars

Other data show that Porsche’s have an overall accident rate of 23.6 per cent – three times higher than Daewoo’s – while Volvo’s figure was 21.4 per cent and Lexus’ 21.1 per cent, making those three some of the worst cars. If you file a road traffic accident claim from driving one of those cars, chances are you won’t be alone. Conversely, Nissan had an accident rate of just 12.4 per cent, almost half that of Porsche’s.

Of course, how cars are driven has a huge impact on the chances of being involved in an accident – if you drive a Nissan recklessly, you are likely to crash; and if it’s your fault, you can’t file for road traffic accident compensation.
