In Massachusetts you do not have a limit to let them know. but state law says that you should report an accident within 3 to 7 business days. depending on the amount of damage.... personal advise..... always report accidents to the insurance company immediately no matter what the situation. if you do not report and another person does then their story is on record first and you may loose credibility. 30 days is the limit I believe
Sure. People can claim anything. The question is will your insurance pay the claim. Without a police report of the accident, you may be in for a lawsuit. Never ever, have an accident and fail to call the police.
Yes, CLUE reports monitor anything paid by any insurance company regardless of a police report. Therefore, only if you reported the accident to the insurance company or they reported it. If you did not, and they did not, and there was no police report(for example you did some kind of direct negotiation or something) only then is there no way they are going to find out.
If this happened to me, I would find out what my insurance company can do and from there contact the police or file a civil or small claims suit. None, if the accident wasn't reported to the police.
1) Your insurance company receives your driving record from your DMV.

It shouldn't ... normally insurance companies do not report the accident to the police authorities unless a death is involved. However, since you reported the accident to your insurance and if you are at fault, it may cause your rates to increase.
In all states an accident in which damage occurred (and even those in which there is no noticeable damage) are supposed to be reported to the police immediately and at the scene of the accident. If there is no police report it becomes next to impossible to collect compensation from the insurance company.
If the accident was reported to the police at the time it occurred, I believe a report can be filed, although it should have been filed ASAP. Check with your insurance company and state regulations.
The way car insurance works after an accident is that a report must be made to the insurance company. They will review it and then decide what you new insurance cost will be. Answer: Accidents need to be reported to your insurance company as soon as possible whether you or someone else caused the accident. If police were called to the scene then you must obtain a copy of the police report as well to be sent to your insurance company. All of this if you plan to file the insurance claim through your or the other drivers insurance. Some have accidents but the repairs are so minor that they pay out of pocket rather than getting the insurance companies involved.
Your insurance company is probably the least of your concerns but yes the company will pay the claim. If hope that you also went to the police department and reported it to them. Your insurance will go up due to the accident and the ticket for leaving the scene if you don't get more tickets for other violations.
The other party can still file a claim with your insurance company, but it is highly unlikely that the Police would get involved at this point. Depending on what state you are in, the other party has years to file that claim. If the accident was that minor and they haven't reported it by now, they probably never will.
Call the police and get a police report. Call your insurance company and report it to them asap.

When people have accidents in their automobile and someone is injured it is required to report it to the police and to their insurance company. This is because the injured person may need a doctors care and the person responsible for the accident is the one that will be required to pay through their insurance company.
You can't unless they tell you who they are insured with. Who a person is insured with or even if they have insurance is a private matter between the insured and the insurance company. Now, if there is an accident and the police come to the scene they will collect that information and put it in the accident report. This is why it is crucial to always call the police to the scene of the accident no matter how much the other person begs to give them a break. Always, always!!! call the police to the scene of an accident. The exception is if the accident is on private property.
Once you decided to not go through insurance and not file a police report, you left yourself open for paying for your own repairs. Sorry you learned such a hard lesson. Never have an accident and not get a police report. The insurance company is not going to pay out based on someone's word. A police report is needed to file a claim.
Who is at fault has to do with the accident itself not the insurance coverage. A police report of the accident and looking at the proximate cause of the accident help determine fault.
