Do You Have to Tell Your Insurer About Old Accidents?

Telling your insurer about an old accident is always in your best interest. Car accidents stay on your record for up to seven years, and you have to tell your insurer about old accidents if you want to maintain your coverage. What happens if you don't tell your insurance about an accident? Your auto insurance claim could be denied, and you could be denied coverage in the future or have your policy canceled altogether.
