This probably applies to owner/ operaters more than bigger companys. Over labor day weekend I broke my collar bone riding my dirt bike in the oregon dunes. When it happened the first thing that came to mind was "my wife is gonna kill me!" and "what am I going to do about all my customers". Luckily one of my friends that has his own landscape businness was there when it happend and later that night at camp he offered to help me out while I would be out of commision. It has worked out really well. I did feel kind of stupid when I had to call all of my customers explaining what happened and that there would be a different company stopping by for a while. Any way I am giving him half of the money that is made. I have also hooked him up with some jobs that he could have 100% of the money. If the situation was reversed I would do it for him. If you are an owner / operater and you like to do stuff like jump motor cycles, skateboard, or other hobbys that are potentially dangerous it might be a good idea to make arangements incase you can't work for a while and all your doing is crusing around lawn site. Just a little friendly advise, later.
