Insurance is how we protect ourselves from the uncertainties in life and the accidents that will happen no matter how careful we are. It is not just about how careful we are; it is about the actions of others that might spell disaster for us. Insurance allows us to protect each other from these events that threaten livelihoods and household budgets.

Protection from Probable Events
Accidents are probable events because as much as we try and prevent them at home and the workplace, they still happen to a considerable proportion of the population. People become tired and make mistakes. People neglect to check buildings for safety as often as they should. Road conditions are not considered when speeds should be reduced. Everyone is in a hurry to get from one place to another. Whatever the reason for an accident, we will want it covered by insurance.
Insurance protects our finances in the long term because we cannot necessarily afford to pay claims should they occur. Instead, we can pay small premiums for the peace of mind of not having to find the much larger amount should there be an accident or loss, for whatever reason, and whoever it is caused by.
Additionally to insurance, safety in the workplace is absolutely paramount. Nobody wants to be injured at work both from an employer and employee standpoint. Avoid accidents in the workplace by ensuring you are familiar with workplace safety regulations. Feeling safe from injury and illness whilst working is beneficial for everyone, and the ability to understand and comply with them is crucial to avoid insurance and legal costs for all parties involved, in addition to the obvious of protecting the health of everybody around.
We can insure our vehicle not just to satisfy legal requirements but to make sure that we are not out of pocket if the accident is proven to be our fault, and not that of the other party. It is not always clear whose fault an accident is sometimes, but by protecting your no claims bonus, you will guarantee not to lose this valuable policy discount.
A house fire could mean the loss of all contents, and this could amount to a significant amount. Insurance can never replace sentimental items, but it can take care of the money you would need to replace everything needed to make life comfortable again.
Businesses pay significant amounts for insurance for a good reason. They do not want to take the risk that one large insurance claim with drain their bank of all its funds. They want to protect their workers that would lose their jobs if a company had no money to continue its operations.
Liability insurance for the comparatively small amount it costs will protect a company from needing to potentially pay vast sums of money should a worker or member of the public be injured at their work premises. This could be a worker on a machine who loses an arm, it still happens, or an excited shopper merrily browsing down the aisles to end up the victim of a nest of boxes falling on top of them and knocking them out cold. This might have been because they were not stacked correctly. Either way, it still happened and can be sued for.
For our ultimate protection, we would insure everything. We cannot necessarily afford that, so we will look to which insurances are required by law and most important to us. Motor insurance has an element that is required by law, for everyone. For businesses, a policy that covers employer’s liability is compulsory. Other than that, it is about protecting ourselves and the finances that we have worked hard for. We owe it to our families to consider them too by insuring against as many eventualities as we can afford.
The history of insurance can inform us why we insure today. We need that same protection they had in the past today, and there are now more insurances than ever to choose from that will provide everyone with the financial security they seek.

We conclude with the thought about what could happen if we do not insure. This thought of having potentially lost all our possessions and not being in a financial position to be able to replace any of them or being unable to physically earn an income again and without anybody to claim compensation off, can be incredibly daunting. All this is preventable with insurance.
