Filing a car insurance claim with unreported previous damage

I was in a fender-bender that was indisputably the other driver's fault, but I'm not sure how to proceed with the insurance claim because there was already some mild prior damage to my car from a couple of scrapes in my house's treacherous driveway that I never brought to my insurer's attention. Can I get in trouble with my insurance company (USAA) for failing to report those minor solo collisions, and how much will it complicate a claim against the at-fault driver's insurance? [more inside]

I may have admitted fault at the scene of an accident.

I got into an accident yesterday. It was my first accident so I really had no idea what to do. The other driver kept insisting it was my fault and I just kept apologizing (which is admitting fault?). How does this play in during the insurance claim? [more inside]

Should I look for a lawyer?

Fellow MeFi's, I am debating whether I should dispute the outcome of a marine insurance claim. Any input from someone that has dealt with insurance companies would be greatly appreciated. However, as I realise that my opinion on the matter is obviously biased, any independent assesment of the situation would also be very useful. [more inside]

False insurance claim for an accident I didn't have!?

I just got a call from my insurance company telling me that someone had filed a claim against me for an accident I didn't have! They seemed to believe me when I said I didn't have an accident and are forwarding it to central claims. I'll hopefully get a call from them this afternoon with more information. Does this happen a lot? How would someone get enough information about me to file an insurance claim against me?
