    According to historians the Roman and Greeks paved the way for personal injury insurance in the UK

    It may seem strange and yet does not come as a surprise that it was the Greek and Roman empires that paved the way for personal injury insurance in the UK historians reveal.

    The idea of paying a smaller sum of money throughout a person’s lifetime that meant they could provide for their family should they die or be injured can trace its roots back to these two huge empires say historians. This was some way from the personal injury insurance in the UK historians say from the insurance we are used to today but it does have similar social ideals. The idea of insurance based on people wanting to protect their families from the mis-fortunes of life that they encounter.

    The people who were citizens of these great empires were clearly aware of their frailty and wanted to in some way try and provide for their families if they needed help. Modern personal injury insurance in the UK historians say shows how much we have in common with the people of these cultures. Personal accident insurance UK historian say is based on the same desire for modern society as it was for Greek and Roman societies to protect their families.

    Our modern world has changed since the time of the Roman and Greek empires clearly some basic human needs have not and will never change. As a race we all need food, water and shelter and the means to provide these basic necessities drive virtually every human being on the face of the planet. Provision of these basic requirements is at the heart of personal injury insurance in the UK historians say much like it was for these ancient cultures of Rome and Greece.
