Not Reporting the Accident to the Insurance Company
Drivers may be concerned about car insurance rates going up and may consider covering their accident losses themselves. This could be a big mistake. What might seem at first to be a minor injury or a small amount of property damage could turn into expensive problems. If the driver who caused your crash promises to pay for all damages, there is no guarantee that he or she will follow through. Failing to report your crash to the insurance company could jeopardize your right to the coverage you deserve, including no-fault benefits for lost wages and medical expenses.
