    Yes you can file a auto claim without a police report. In fact if claim involves a collision and there is no bodily injury involved police will seldom if ever come to the scent to do a report. However if the claim involves a theft you do want to file a report to validate the claim.

    Police may not respond to an accident.  They avoid accidents in parking lots (the scene of many accidents.)  With the proliferation of smart phones, a detail evaluation of a claim can be made by submitting photos of the damage to your car, and any other cars, people or objects.  Auto theft is a crime and must be reported to the police.
