    My phone got damaged due to my bossís mistake

    I am working in a software company. Recently I have purchased a very expensive phone. But just yesterday while I was at my office, it fell down on the floor and got damaged. Actually My boss was walking past me but he didnít notice me and so the accident took place as the phone was in my hand. Now I donít know what to do. Even the repair would cost a lot. Should I tell my boss regarding this ? Please guide me in the right direction.

    This is an unfortunate incident that your mobile got damaged in this manner.It is just an accident in which you cannot blame anyone except yourself.Neither you nor your boss did it intentionally.So you cannot even ask your boss for the repair cost.Although on the humanity part of your boss,he should have given some repair cost since he was involved in the accident yet you cannot force him to do so.You can just expect that your boss will give some sum from his pocket for the damage.You can neither request or ask him for that.

    It will be better for you to bear the losses alone.Sometimes,you can get warranty if the physical damage is not much.However,you can also enquire whether there is any provision of the company of providing mobile phones to its employees.This is because some companies have this provision.If it is there,you can request your boss to provide you that facility.

    Hi aspirant

    This is definitely a very tricky situation for you but I think you should not let your boss come into picture in this matter. The best thing for you would be not to involve your boss into this matter and thus solve it by yourself. It will not look good onto your part if you ask your boss to pay for it or tell him that it was his mistake due to which your phone broke. Your reputation will be affected badly if you do such a thing so try your best not ot involve your boss in this matter.

    Think of it just as an accident and get the repairs done by yourself. I know that it will be very difficult for you to shell out all the money for the repairs by yourself but you should try to manage it somehow. You can borrow the money from someone for the time being and then return it to him later on. I am sure you will be getting a good pay and thus can surely manage it by yourself.

    I hope you get my point. Good luck

    Hi friends,

    I think this is just an accident.
    You can not ask the damage of the your phone because you cannot blame any one expert your self.
    This just an accident.
    I think your boss new phone given to you because your phone damage your boss hands.
    Your boss not given cost you can repair your self.


    Thanks!!!

    GOOD LUCK.........
