I caused an accident in December. I have no license but I do have car insurance. I filed a claim with the insurance company. Can I get in trouble for insurance fraud?

Unlikely, but the insurance company might deny coverage for yor damage, if you claimed you had a valid license when applying for coverage.

If you had insurance and are making a valid claim than no. Lying to your insurance company to set up a claim would be fraud.

There is no fraud here, unless you lied when you made the claim. However, you may be denied coverage based on your policy language (like violating a law.)
