Why insurances are useful?
Regardless how much the human kind evolved, one thing is clear: we can not control everything what is happening around us, the best example being probably the nature. Mass media presents often the natural disasters that hit various regions, and unfortunately Romania is not an exception. But the nature is not the only factor that could affect us and causes damages: accidents happen everywhere and robbery, theft, crime, all belongs to the human nature.
Risk will always exist. But there are other risks related to health, professional activity and in case of companies risks related with merchandised goods or company’s assets. This is why it is useful to try to share the risks and to transfer them to specialized companies.
These are the reasons for which the insurance services or better-called products emerged. This products or services offered by specialized companies which take over the risks in exchange for an amount of money. This way, paying a fee is protecting the insured against the problems caused by accidents, either car accidents or other kind, and could save the company from the financial issues which could lead to bankruptcy, etc.
