    So, I got my work a MacBook about 10 months ago and forgot to get Square Trade. She had a near accident when a student almost knocked a drink on her MacBook. Any suggestions for a warranty that covers accidental damage?

    If I'm understanding your post correctly. You cannot get an extended warranty/insurance after its damaged. Its too late.

    Depends where you are these things are different in every country, but the quickest easiest cheapest option is usually to add it as a named item on your home insurance.

    It isn't damaged yet. She had a near miss yesterday, which prompted me to start searching for one.

    Ah I'm in the UK, here it usually works out cheaper and easier to do as I suggested above. I'm afraid I don't know enough about US insurance to advise.

    You want insurance, not a warranty. They are not the same thing.

    Check your homeowner's policy, some offer accidental damage for electronics. Else you can probably have it added in for a nominal fee.
