Be on your guard if the other party refuses to notify the police. If he acknowledges that he is at fault and initiates a gentlemen’s agreement to compensate your loss in private, it is important to take into account the true cost of a private settlement. Most insurance policies contain a condition that specifies the driver must notify the insurer on any accident resulting in damage to person or vehicle. Failure to do so may be deemed as a policy violation and your entire insurance coverage may be voided as a result
