If you are mowing on a property not your own and do damage you can be held liable for it. One would think people would accept the act as a good deed and either forgive the damage or accept some partial payment for it but that is often not the case. After nearly twenty years of practicing law you would be surprised what people will want to file suit over; well you would be surprised I am jaded enough not to be shocked by anything anymore.
