Money Matters - Damages from a goy
Submitted by Adi Salama  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question:
Answer: From a Halachic perspective there does not seem to be any room for a financial claim. Nezek does not apply since there is no permanent damage (hopefully). Furthermore, the accident was indirectly caused, and not done actively by anyone.

Technically there might be claim for Sheves - (compensation for lack of wages) but obviously this would not apply for a child, and again, it was caused indirectly. A claim against the organisers would thus not be entertained.

Legally, however, you may well have a claim against the hotel owners, and you are entitled to claim for this if it is applicable.

Money Matters - Chipped Store Item
Submitted by e strauss  Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool
Question:
Answer: I'm afraid so. If you already bought it then it's obviously not their problem. Even if you didn't yet buy it, you are responsible for any damage that you did, even accidentally. The fact that they did not give good service doesn't absolve you of responsibility. Next time, leave it on the counter and insist that they bring the wrapping materials.
One point though. If you haven't yet bought it, you don't actually have to buy it, just to pay for the damage done, i.e. the difference between the price before it was chipped and the price it's worth now. (But with a delicate vase, that may well be practically the full cost!)
