    Answered . It is much less stressful if you go ahead and report this accident to your insurance company. Once you do it, it will be off your mind. Your policy of insurance requires you to notify your insurance company.

    Answered . You have a duty to contact your insurance company that is outlined in your own individual insurance policy. That having been said, you should definitely contact them. If you don't, they might use this failure to notify them as an excuse to deny coverage, saying that you "failed to cooperate." Contact them ASAP.
