Smaller Vehicles, More Deaths

The deadliest vehicles on our roads are also the tiniest.

Half of the vehicles listed on the top 10 deadliest vehicles on the road are mini cars and three are small cars, according to the latest 2017 report by the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety.

The rating is based on the number of driver deaths and it’s really no surprise that vehicles with the least amount of space to protect occupants are the deadliest to be inside during a collision.

Topping the list of most dangerous vehicles is the 2014 Hyundai Accent with a death rate of 104 deaths per million, but the car’s safety has improved considerably since its rate of 120 for the 2011 Hyundai Accent a few years ago.

Top 10 Deadliest Vehicles 2017

  • Hyundai Accent, 104 deaths (mini)
  • Kia Rio, 102 deaths (mini)
  • Scion TC, 101 deaths (small)
  • Chevrolet Spark, 96 deaths (mini)
  • Nissan Versa, 95 deaths (mini)
  • Ford Fiesta, 83 deaths (mini)
  • Kia Soul, 82 deaths (small)
  • Dodge Challenger, 81 deaths (large car)
  • Nissan Titan Crew Cab, 73 deaths (large car)
  • Nissan Sentra, 72 deaths (small)

The death rates are calculated using only driver deaths because not all vehicles have passengers aboard them. Experts agree that larger sedans are the safest vehicles on the roadway. In fact, nine of the top 10 vehicles providing the lowest death rate are large or midsize vehicles: 1. Audi A6 4wd; 2. Audi Q7 4wd (SUV); 3. BMW 535i/is 2wd; 4. BMW 535xi 4wd; 5. Jeep Cherokee 4wd (SUV); 6. Lexus CT 200h; 7. Lexus RX350 2wd (SUV); 8. Mazda cx-9 2wd (SUV); 9. Mercedes-Benz M-Class 4WD (SUV); 10. Toyota Tacoma Double Cab long bed 4WD (pickup).

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case.
