    Default how long after an accident

    can I report it? I was rear ended and the other driver wanted to by pass insurance. He gave me info but has been resistant to settling. I went to the police reporting station as the dealership advised but as it was less than $1000. they wouldn't write it up. I went to the doctor who said I had soft tissue damage with some whiplash. She said to take Robaxecet and have a follow up xray thru my family dr. this week.

    I was trying to be nice and not make a big deal about this but I had back pain for more than a week and no the guy is hesitating with the quotes my DH has gotten for the car repair. Is it too late to report it if I choose to?

    Hi Nananana, not pass go, do not collect $200, go directly to...your insurance company!! My suggestion is that you call your insurance company right away. There are different times for different companies, but my concern is that if it is not reported, and there are potentially health issues after the fact, your insurance provider needs to be aware in order to help you. I am suprised at the Police reporting center response considering I have had $1000 or less damage reported without concern.

    Please contact your claims department for your broker/provider. If you have the medical information, bring it with you. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to email me

    Please feel better!!
