Insurance is a contract between two parties. The insurer and the insured. In the simplest case, they are both individuals, but they can also be companies, groups of people or even countries.
Insurance companies are businesses that provide a variety of services to insurance policies. They are also known as insurance brokerages, or life insurance companies. The company employs brokers to sell insurance policies to individuals and businesses.
The insurance company agrees to pay out money on a particular event happening to its insured person/company. It does this by accepting a certain amount of money from its insured. Then dividing it up into smaller amounts according to how many claims it has received. The insured must pay the difference between what it pays for their premium and what it owes to their insurance company. In return for this service. The insurer takes on all risk associated with the claim. All responsibility for paying it out if there is an accident or other loss.
The first insurance policy:
The first insurance policy is believed to have been written in about 1550. In England and Wales, life insurance was known as ‘assurance’. it means that you pay a premium, either monthly or annually, for an insurance company to cover you for any costs if you are injured or fall ill and need treatment.
Mutual insurance companies allow the policyholders of a company to both own the company and vote on how much they will charge in premiums. It is usually preferred by young people who don’t want to lock themselves into something just yet
Types of insurance:
In the world of insurance, there are three basic types: personal property, liability and automotive. Personal property insurance protects everything that you own. Liability insurance covers damages to people and things. And automotive insurance protects cars, boats and other vehicles that are used for transportation and recreation.
Personal property coverage is also known as “homeowner’s” insurance because it provides protection to your home and its contents against loss or damage due to fire, windstorm or other natural disasters. In addition to protecting your home against loss due to fire or theft, homeowner’s insurance may cover personal belongings such as jewelry, clothing and electronics if they are stolen during a covered event; this type of coverage is sometimes referred to as “extended replacement cost” (ERC) or “replacement cost” (RC).
Liability coverage protects you from lawsuits related to bodily injury that you cause or suffer through no fault of your own – for example, if someone trips over your dog on your linoleum floor or falls off their bicycle because they were distracted by the sound of a passing ambulance. Most states require liability insurance for some drivers who hold commercial licenses; in addition to covering bodily injuries suffered by another person’s negligence or carelessness.
Automobile insurance covers damage to your vehicle caused by something other than collision, such as fire, theft, vandalism and hailstorms. Your auto policy will pay up to a certain amount of money if your vehicle is involved in an accident with another vehicle or object (collision coverage) or if it is damaged by fire, smoke or water during an accident (combined coverage).
The benefits of insuring are many, including:
– Protection against loss or damage;
– Transferring part or all of the risk from one party to another; and
– Providing a means of compensation when an insured event occurs.
In most cases, we talk about insurance, we are referring to insurance sold by companies. who provide various kinds of coverage such as property damage, health risks and auto accidents. In some cases, the company may also offer additional services like accident forgiveness or life insurance.
Purpose of Insurance:
Insurance companies make money by charging premiums for their services and then paying claims. The size of a claim is determined by many factors, including the type of risk involved (e.g., fire versus earthquake), whether it was caused by an act of God (e.g., hurricane damage)
