Today, I was just about to do an important presentation in front of my boss and co-workers. When, without warning I tripped in front of everyone and knocked a VERY expensive computer off the table. How do I know it was so expensive? I'm paying for it. FML

There's no reason any company shouldn't have insurance for workplace accidents. Either this is a fake, your company is operating incredibly irresponsibly, or they think/know you're dumb and can pull one over on you.

I call fake, which I don't think I've ever done again, but all businesses are covered against things like this through their insurance. No way a business would make you pay for a computer, they may fire you, but not dock wages over it.

Of course "breakages" is a word.

So many of these commenters think they know everything about everything when they really don't.

And in general, it's always 'sue sue sue' with everyone. Everyone's sue-happy and it is ridiculous with all the money and effort expended on suing, it's just easier to buy a new computer.

Your employer can't legally charge you for this in most countries. They should have insureance against accidents like this and, if not, it's their problem.
