Why Cavemen Needed
Public Liability Insurance
may not have had the same problems we do now, however
they had many difficulties in their daily lives. Cavemen
needed public liability insurance to protect themselves
against injury or damages claims. They were pursued
constantly by all manner of wildlife that wanted to kill
them and their employees. Woolly mammoths, sabre tooth
tigers and many other predators thought cavemen made a
satisfying morning snack.
There werenít any supermarkets around and they had to
rise early to do their hunting for the day. While
pursuing a cave bear, or wild ox mountain goat, some of
them didnít quite get it right. They missed their target
on occasion, and sent spears into the shoulders, or
backsides of the men hunting alongside them. It was a
dangerous work environment and they could turn a corner
and encounter a hungry sabre tooth tiger instead of a
trembling mountain goat.
there were many perks that came with that kind of job.
Hunters were admired by the whole village. They were the
ones who took the risk of being crushed by dinosaurs
while making off with eggs for omelettes. Unfortunately,
they could get gored by a woolly mammoth for their
efforts, instead of being cheered around the campfire.
If they worked in teams, the head of the group was
usually responsible for making sure that their families
got taken care of if a hunter got hurt. If the cavemen
smashed their clubs into bits while earning their daily
beef, they would sometimes sue. Without public liability
insurance these leaders would not be able to meet their
For those who couldnít quite get the hang of sending an
arrow into a moving target, hope was not lost. They
could get a job in the fields, gathering nuts, fruits
and berries. If they didnít know which ones were safe to
eat, they would have a very short career. Their lack of
due diligence could result in itching, rashes or
frequent trips to answer the call of the wild.
Some of them didnít pay much attention when the grey
bearded elders pointed out those berries and roots that
were fit for consumption. They were usually too busy
poking armadillos with sticks to make them roll up into
balls. While others were learning how to identify poison
ivy, yew and hemlock, the idlers were throwing stones at
horned toads and pterosaurs.
Thatís why on the job, they were likely to cause injury
to their coworkers. They would send them to pick the
wrong herbs. They even served roots that could kill
everyone instantly in the village stew. Their employers
had to have public liability insurance to cover
incidents like that.
