For many, the term insurance is thrown around very often but not many people understand what exactly it is. The origins of insurance date back all the way to the Code of Hammurabi, a collection of Babylonian laws of 1700 BC, which provided the first credit insurance. But modern-day insurance dates back to 1666 with the Great fire of London which destroyed 13200 homes, which formed the birth of Nicolas Barbon’s office to insure buildings.
Insurance is providing protection against financial loss in a number of situations. These situations include loss against one's property, life or health.
Life insurance policies provide a certain amount of money when the insured person dies. Health Insurance pays all or covers most of one's medical care, whether it is hospitalization, surgery or a doctor's visit. Property Insurance is bought to protect individuals against financial loss on assets and has two major forms which are Home and Auto insurance.

Running a business is never as smooth sailing as everyone thinks, just ask Bob who was caught up in a series of unlucky events that forced him to close his construction company. The first incident that Bob experienced was after he had locked up the offices after a long day at work on a Wednesday, only to realize on the Thursday morning that some of his personal and business electronics had been stolen. After searching the premises for anything else that had been stolen, he found out that some tools that his workers used in construction had been stolen too. In days following that incident as Bob was trying to find enough money to replace all that was stolen, a fire at the company broke out. Nobody was injured, but the fire destroyed valuable papers and business documents as well as a lot of furniture. As Bob was trying to get his company out of this financial ruin, a middle-aged lady came in to enquire about potential construction that she needed to occur on her home. While she was leaving the premises, she tripped and landed awkwardly causing her to fracture her left arm. This incident required legal action on behalf of Bobs company and cost the company a lot of money that they did not have at the time.
Although Bobs incidents do seem like a string of bad luck, they are all very possible. If Bob had Business insurance maybe he would not have needed to close down his company since most of the costs would have been covered.

What is Business Insurance
Angela had always dreamed of one day running a Graphic design company, and just 2 years ago at the age of 31 this dream turned into a reality. Angela had graduated from North Carolina State with an undergrad in Graphics design and after college worked in a Graphic Design company in Raleigh. All this experience set her up to open her own company, where she employed 30 graphic designers who had just graduated from college and some who were young. Angela knew that starting a business was not guaranteed success and due to this she bought business insurance.
Business insurance helps companies protect their financial assets, intellectual and physical property, from risk such as property damage, lawsuits, theft, vandalism, financial loss and employee illnesses and injuries. Business insurance gives Angela a layer of financial protection from losses that are likely to occur.
Be like Angela, if you are thinking of starting a business or already have one, call a Trout Insurance agent today and get extra protection for your business.
