Thankfully...not once.

I Did Nt Get All The Details I Guess He Was Helping The Lawn Cutting Guy With Some Of His Equipment On To The Truck.anyway He Only Got 5000.00 Out Of The Guy.i See So Many People That Do This Part What Looks Like For Extra Cash People Have Know Idea According To My Cousin That All It Takes Is One Accident And For Those That Have Homes 401k Plans Any Capital What So Ever You Will Be Taking A Big Bath!we All Want To Make As Much As We Can The First Couple Years I Went Without Insurance I Wouuld Never Never Never Take The Chance With Out It.although No One Ever Inquires As To Whether I Have It Except The The Realtors Who I Try To Acquire Business With.be Careful And Buy Insurance.
I am part time, have insurance, and I am incorporated. I keep my business strictly separate, and follow all rules and regs for my corporation (It just does not exists on paper). I am more protected than alot that do this full time and think that they are protected because they are incorporated. I would like to hear one of the full timers who's veil was pierced on their corporate identity...but you probably wont because their insurance payoff was maxed out and they still had to claim bankrupcy, and don't have a computer to access Lawnsite on! Not all part timers are scrubs!

This is why I get so pissed when stupid women with babies in baby carriages come walking right through the middle of my work area with no concern whatsoever. One rock, one stick, bottle cap, etc caught by the mower at that kid and I'm looking at manslaughter charges. Use your ******* brain, for God's sake! Man that pisses me off. Damned idiots!
