Car Damaged While Working

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about car damaged while on company errand:

We were in the process of moving into another building and I was asked to do a company errand and while I was doing the errand my window got busted. How do I go about asking them to pay for it?

Dear Broken Window:

If you have insurance, it will likely pay for the window without affecting your rates. Your insurance may work with your company’s insurance to be reimbursed if you can prove you were doing company business. Your company would then pay you any deductible. Or, your company may pay for the damage completely. All of that would depend upon if you could prove the damage was a result of you using your car for business purposes.
