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.

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.

Some have accidents but the repairs are so minor that they pay out of pocket rather than getting the insurance companies involved.
