How Many Part Timers Are Risking It All

I Was Curious After Having A Conversation And Laugh With A Family Member Who Is An Attorney.he Was Telling Me About A Guy Who Was Being Sued By A Homeowner Who He Cuts His Lawn For, For An Incident In Which The Homeowner While Helpng The Lawn Cutter With Something Slipped Fell And Injuried Himself. 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.

That was one of the most difficult posts to understand that I have ever read. All of the words in capital letters, and no punctuation made my eyes hurt.

On a related topic. I've wondered this for a long time: How many people have had their Insurance company save their bacon ? I'm not talking about the occasional window or dented car,something that a viable business could pay for out of its pocket, what I'm talking about is something big that would have put you out of business if not for insurance.

Those rocks you kick up with your mower and edger go a heck of a lot farther than 5 feet.

I guess you'll never hear from the guys who don't have insurance that did have something terrible happen, because they had to declare bankruptcy and can't afford a computer...

I haven't had any major ones, but a handful that would have taken too big a bite out of my profits for my taste. That's what insurance is for in my opinion.
