                                   Top Five Cars Identified for Personal Injury Claims
                                   Chicago, IL (Law Firm Newswire) November 20, 2012 – According to a recent report by the Insurance Institute
                                   for Highway Safety (IIHS), some cars are far riskier than others when it comes to being injured during an auto
                                   accident.

                                   The IIHS compiled and analyzed claims information from 2009 to 2011 to determine which cars were involved in
                                   personal injury protection claims (PIPs) most often.

                                   “The report shows that small car owners filed the most claims, ,” said Paul Greenberg, a Chicago car accident
                                   attorney. “This isn’t particularly surprising given that a small car is more likely to sustain damage in a crash than
                                   a large one.”

                                   The vice president of the Highway Loss Data Institute, Matt Moore, stated that the driver’s geographic location
                                   and income can also affect the rate of claims. Smaller cars are more likely to be driven in an urban environment,
                                   with more traffic. As traffic increases, so too does the chance of being involved in a car accident.

                                   The top 10 cars most likely to be in an accident were determined for 2009-2011 models. The car with the highest
                                   rate of personal injury claims is the Toyota Yaris, with either the driver or passenger filing 28.5 personal injury
                                   claims for every 1,000 insured vehicles.

                                   According to the Highway Loss Data Institute, after the Yaris, the Suzuki SX4 crossover had the most claims, at
                                   26.6 claims for every 1,000 SX4s. The third most likely car to be involved in a PIP claim was the Chevrolet Aveo,
                                   a subcompact vehicle with 26 injury claims for every 1,000 insured models on the road. Fourth is the Mitsubishi
                                   Galant, a sedan, with a reported 25.4 claims of injury for each 1,000 insured cars. At number 5 is the Kia Rio,
                                   which the Highway Loss Data Institute reported as claiming 24.9 injuries for every 1,000 insured models.
