Will the Insurance Company Look at my Criminal Record If I Make a Personal Injury Claim?

Chris Finney, Trial Attorney

We can’t say for sure that the insurance company won’t; they will definitely try to, depending on the stage of your case or claim.

The insurance company will try and get your driving record. They’ll try and run you in all different types of databases to gather as much information as they can on you. They’ll even get private investigators involved if they have to.

It’s safe to say they may find out your criminal history during the claim stage of your case. With that said, once a lawsuit is filed, you will have to disclose any crimes you committed or pled guilty to. It is required under the law.

But, pre-lawsuit, it really depends, but we would guess to say they will find out.
