|Money Matters - Damages from a goy|
|Submitted by Adi Salama Answered by Rav Yehonoson Hool|
|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.
