I live in Washington, DC. I attempted to purchase a bag of chips from the vending machine at work. I deposited the money and selected the chips I wanted. The lever which held the chips in place turned slightly but not enough to release the chips. I tried to free the chips by bumping the machine with my right hip. On the third bump, the glass covering the machine shattered. Other co-workers have shaken and bumped the machine in the past. I was informed post-accident that the dealer had been notified on several occasions that the vending machine was not dispensing the food properly. Who is financially responsible? Me, my employer, or will insurance likely cover this accident?
