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.
