I damaged somthing at the mall but I didn't mean it.

A family was bonding on the mall with their kids, they went window shopping. They went through every department. Suddenly the kids accidently damaged a sculpture that was being kept by the mall. Now the family does not know what to do. It is an expensive piece of art. So they went to the manager and settle things out.

    The use of the word “accidentally” ]which is always a fun word for lawyers. It’s possible, if the amount were great enough and the company decided to sue you over it, that if the situation were truly an accident, and not a negligent or reckless act, that a court would find no liability, this is because tort law is predicated on intent, generally speaking. Even negligence requires more than a mere “accident” — it requires a duty, a breach of that duty, and damages.
