Disasters caused by humans
In the United States, the cost of disasters caused by human beings reached 5.8 billion dollars in 2011. In general, these losses were provoked by large-scale industrial fires, explosions and other damages in the energy sector.
These types of tragedies, caused by humans, are something you cannot control. They are unforeseen — a risk that takes place without notice. Life insurance protects against these incidents and reduces the impact caused by fortuitous acts, which can cause the loss of lives and material possessions.
