Can I file an insurance claim against someone if all I have is their license plate number and name?

Someone hit my car from behind, but I forgot to take down their insurance information. Can I still file a claim?

“Since you don’t have their car insurance information, your best bet is to begin the claims process with your own insurance company.
You can provide them with all the information you have regarding the accident, including the other driver’s name and license plate number, the date of the accident, and proof of loss (the damage caused to your vehicle). This information will help them find out if the other driver has insurance and seek reimbursement through their company, if applicable. “
