A person claiming on an insurance policy for damage as a result of an accident must inform the insurer of court proceedings for an offence arising out of the incident, as it may affect the insurer's ability to defend the claim. A person who pleads guilty without first getting the insurer's approval may find that the insurer will refuse to meet the claim.
