All claims need to be reported. Until a claim is reported the insurance company has no knowledge of the claim. Therefore, since the insurance company does not even know about the claim, they can take no action to protect their interest or your interest (mostly their interest) regarding the claim. Accordingly, all policies will have clauses that state that if you fail to report a claim you can’t collect on the policy. You need to report the claim as soon as practical, and you should get documentation as proof that you reported the claim.
