As we close the books on 2017 and look forward to 2018 and beyond, it’s hard not to reflect on the series of natural disasters that plagued the country in the past year. From floods to tornados, wild fires to hurricanes, it seemed that no one was spared.
This series of events highlighted for us the pure unpredictability of life, and the fact that the best plans often go awry. The environmental impacts of events such as these are huge, and while some cannot be tied to a single insured, many others can be. A completely unexpected event leading to a pollution release is in fact why people buy insurance, and why more people need to consider it.
