It depends on the degree of falsity. If the accident did not happen, that would be called "insurance fraud". It can be punished as a crime in most states and can also subject a person to a claim for civil damages. If the accident did happen, but the person is mistaken about the exact location, and if the damage that is claimed includes a little old damage, that would not be considered sufficient falsity to constitute fraud.
