    Met with an accident due to the fault of the company driver

    I am working in an automobile company. We all have been provided with chauffeur driven cars by the management. Just few days back I met with an accident due to the fault of the company driver. I have recovered now . Now I am thinking of asking my manager to reimburse my expenses for my treatment. Should I do such a thing? Will my company pay my expenses?

    Hello friend,
    I am sorry to hear that you met with an accident. Hope you have recovered fully. If the expenses are large enough then go in for a reimbursement. Check out if your company has some specific guidelines related to such a situation. Consult your colleagues.
    Most companies insure their employees. So if you aren't under the insurance cover, then it might become a little difficult for your manager to go out of the way to help you with this. But nevertheless, you can always try and put your point on table. Maybe you succeed.
    If expenses are not reimbursed according to the company's guidelines, then it will also depend upon the rapport you share with your manager. He will able to help you out better if you are on very good terms with him.

    All the best

    Hello,

    I think you are entitled to get reimbursement of the medical expenses incurred during the accident.This is because you met with an accident while you were using the company's car.Company takes responsibility if any employee comes across any mishap during office hours within office or if anyone meets with an accident while using officers cars etc.In your case also,company will take the responsibilty as you have met with the accident while using the company's car.You need to submit the medical records,the prescription and the medical bill in order to get reimbursement for the same.

    hello sir
    it is good that know you are all right and in the matter of refund then mostly in these types of cases only rarer companies will give refund to the employees because they think that all the mistake is done by the employee also and my friend let me tell you in detail that it is also depend on the company profile that maybe they will give you the refund the money or not but i think that in the government organisation all the hospital claim will be take by the government and in private some of the companies do exactly the same.
    thanking you and get well soon...
