Findings: In this paper, using data mining information of 2011year of third party insurance in Iran insurance companies in Kohgiluyeh and Boyer Ahmad province are studied. The results showed that using the classification algorithm with over 91% accuracy and decision trees with over 96% accuracy able to provide a model to identify effecting factors and determine their impact on the profit and loss of vehicle third party insurance. Applications/Improvements: Comparing results indicated that, the decision tree Wj48 with very high accuracy will able to detect and predict the occurrence of the damage of an insurance, properly.
