    Financial protection against loss or harm

    Insurance, in law and economics, is a form of risk management primarily used to

    hedge against the risk of a contingent loss. Insurance is defined as the equitable transfer

    of the risk of a loss, from one entity to another, in exchange for a premium, and can be

    thought of as a guaranteed small loss to prevent a large, possibly devastating loss. An

    insurer is a company selling the insurance; an insured is the person or entity buying the

    insurance. The insurance rate is a factor used to determine the amount to be charged for a

    certain amount of insurance coverage, called the premium. Risk management, the

    practice of appraising and controlling risk, has evolved as a discrete field of study and



    The insurance contract is a contract whereby the insurer will pay the insured (the

    person whom benefits would be paid to, or on the behalf of), if certain defined events

    occur. Subject to the "fortuity principle", the event must be uncertain. The uncertaintycan be either as to when the event will happen (i.e. in a life insurance policy, the time of

    the insured's death is uncertain) or as to if it will happen at all (i.e. a fire insurance


    Insurance contracts are generally considered contracts of adhesion because theinsurer draws up the contract and the insured has little or no ability to make

    material changes to it. This is interpreted to mean that the insurer bears the

    burden if there is any ambiguity in any terms of the contract.

    Insurance contracts are unilateral, meaning that only the insurer makes legallyenforceable promises in the contract. The insured is not required to pay the

    premiums, but the insurer is required to pay the benefits under the contract if

    the insured has paid the premiums and met certain other basic provisions.

    Insurance contracts are governed by the principle of utmost good faith whichrequires both parties of the insurance contact to deal in good faith and in

    particular it imparts on the insured a duty to disclose all material facts which

    relate to the risk to be covered. This contrasts with the legal doctrine that

    covers most other types of contracts, caveat emptor.


    Sometimes in life it is not possible to avoid the losses. For example People may

    become ill. They may die of illness or accidents or their homes or other property may

    undergo damage or theft. So in all these cases and they have to face the loss of income or

    savings. So insurance is a manner of financially insuring that if such an incident comes

    about then the loss does not affect the present well being of the person.


    There should be a certain definite loss taken place at a known time, in a knownplace and from a known cause. Therefore the time, place and the cause of loss

    should be clear enough.

    The incident that represents the cause of the claim should be accidental or beyondthe control of the beneficiary.

    The size of the loss must be significant from the perspective of the insured.Insurance premiums should cover both the estimated cost of losses, plus the cost

    of policy, regulating the losses, and providing the principal required to logically

    assure that the insurer would be able to reimburse claims.

    The amount of premium should be affordable. The possibility of loss and the cost of compensation should be calculable or
