When a driver is involved in a minor accident, they may walk away without any injuries. It isn’t uncommon for these drivers to refuse medical attention and leave the accident unreported altogether. The truth is, every accident you are involved in needs to be reported to both law enforcement and your insurance company.

Injuries May Surface Over Time

Even if you feel fine after your accident, there are certain injuries that may take to display symptoms. It isn’t uncommon for soft tissues injury to surface the next day or even a few days after an accident. If this happens, and you decide to file a personal injury claim, reporting your accident to both your insurance company and law enforcement will be a crucial part of your claim.

Your Car Insurance Requires Reporting of All Accidents

Many drivers neglect reporting minor accidents because they are afraid their insurance premiums may increase. Still, your insurance policy requires that you report all accidents and if they discover that you failed to do so you may be denied coverage in the future.

The Other Driver May Fail to Make Good on Their Promise

In some minor accidents, the drivers reach a spoken agreement to work things out to avoid reporting the accident to law enforcement or insurance. However, if the other driver involved fails to make good on their promise, you will have to cover the repairs to your vehicle without financial help from either insurance company.
