Low probability and high severity (single mom) is where insurance works best.

If life insurance companies can use probabilities to determine the likelyhood that a woman aged 29 will die, why can't I use them to determine the likelihood that I will die? Insurance companies measure their probabilities by observing large numbers of similar exposures.
What is the difference between fundamental and particular risks with respect to whom they affect? Particular risks are loss possibilities that affect only individuals or small groups at the same time, rather than a large segment of society. Fundamental risks, are loss possibilities that can affect large segments of society at the same time.
