I work as a delivery driver and the car topper that I was told to use on my vehicle fell off my car when I was driving and it caused over $800 to get it fixed. They told me they knew the magnets were going bad but they told me if I want to get it fixed and go through the company’s insurance I have to pay the first $500 because they said it was an accident on my part. It wasn’t it was their equipment that failed to work.
Although you could sue your employer for the damage caused by its equipment there might be repercussions on your employment. Sounds like something that is best worked out between the two of you. If damage was caused by their defective equipment (and not due to any negligence on your part) then they should reimburse you for the damage.
