Equipment repair after a major accident

An employee has had an accident in which he suffered major injuries. The piece of equipment has been inspected by our fleet maintenance company, the manufacturer and an independent accident specialist. The employee has not yet submitted a claim and the equipment is required back in service. Should we repair the equipment or wait? The employee could take up to 3
years to make a claim. Does any member have any 'experienced' advice of this situation and whether to have the equipment repaired, or not?
