My 4-year-old daughter was in a car accident awhile back with a friend who has car insurance, am I able to still file a claim through her insurance?

You should still be able to open up a claim for any injuries or medical visits resulting from an accident. Specifically, in Tennessee, you have three years to make property damage claims and one year for injury claims.

How do I get a copy of my MVR?

An MVR wouldn't show accident claims, it will only show your past tickets or citations. If an insurer paid out for a claim, the most likely report they're using is called a CLUE report.

Is the penalty for an insurance claim equal no matter what the offense was?

Unfortunately, it's not that simple and there are many reasons to file a claim not necessarily as a result of reckless driving or other risky driving habits. Insurance companies do not look at the reason for the accident, they look at whose company paid the claim and what it cost them.
