Have you ever had to make a claim on your insurance because you injured a person while mowing or doing other various lawn work?

My answer is also no. However, I have paid out of pocket for a few minor repairs over the years while insured. I also have a couple of commercial accounts that require that I have insurance. I also insure my equipment for theft and loss.

I had a rock go through a driver side window while the guy was in the car. He was cool about it and I got one from a junk yard. If it would of been in the right place he would of been going to the hospital on my dollar.

no I have been hit myself though 200mph stick does not feel good on back of head haha

Broke only one window once but it was a family friends and we have another close family friend with a big glass business less than a mile from home so was quick and easy to get cleared up and no cost.

We always mow away from glass

Open carry down here so not many looking to steal something with a large caliber handgun on your side. As for home neighbors watch over most are armed well.

Surprising due to the Meth problem we have down here cannot let your guard down ever.

I did break a window one time in my first year mowing. it was a trailer park and the grass was a foot tall and a piece of a bed spring was hidden in the weeds/grass.

cost to replace the window was $25. I just gave them some cash and that was that.
