We hate to be those people, but here is the cold, hard truth: most activities, aside from getting out of bed, have unexpected dangers. The reality is that you never think it will be you. It?s always the idiot on TV who falls off the railing or the silly drunk college student who decides to get in her car. As insurance agents, you have to be honest, unless you live in a windowless bubble, your clients are always at risk. Most people have a bucket list of some sort. Perhaps your clients won?t be jumping out of airplanes or scuba diving in Australia, but accidents happen all of the time; SilverSide Insurance Marketing is here to give you a few tips to remind your clients why finding a good life insurance policy as soon as possible is a good idea.
Tropical Vacations (Falling Coconuts and Big Fish)
Surprisingly enough, death-by-coconut is not as uncommon as it should be. Those heavy fruits fall from trees, especially in windy tropical locations, In Queensland, Australia they call the coconut ?the killer fruit?. In fact, George Burgess, the director of the International Shark Attack File at the Florida Museum of Natural History, claims that ?people were 15 times more likely to be killed by falling coconuts than by a shark? (ABC News).
That Pilgrimage to Rome (Plane Crashes and Paper Cuts)
Okay. We admit ?paper cuts? might be a stretch. However, infection from trivial scrapes and bruises are something to always consider. It can be something as trivial as getting a splinter from the pew in church. Infections like MRSA and salmonella are easily caused, but difficult and expensive to treat. On the other hand, you never know when you?ll get in an unfortunate accident, like a plane or automobile crash. Those statistics are too frighteningly frequent to post about here. Protect the ones who rely on you with a solid life insurance policy! Better to be safe than sorry.
Getting Your Mail (Snake Bites and Hip Fractures)
Mail fetching is clearly not a top-chart bucket list goal… But this simple action can cause serious injury, fluffy slippers included. We know only cartoons seem to slip on banana peels, but falls happen all the time, especially on concrete and outdoors. In the Arizona especially, SilverSide sees a large number of deadly snake-bite victims of all ages and walks of life. Do not assume that you are protected with a minimal insurance policy. When danger strikes, it shows no mercy (and neither do hospital bills).
A life of excitement is possible and encouraged! Don?t be afraid to life large and have adventures. It is always better to have a safety net to fall back into. If you have any questions, give us a call and one of our representatives can help you plan with your clients. 480.998.1286
