I am an expat in Malaysia.

We played in court-2 and while resting there is one guy who is waiting in court-1 asked us to join to play. We went to play on his invitation and while playing game, my racket hit his racket and his racket hit his upper lip and he bleed.

Then we took him nearest hospital and did first aid. Doctor said it was a minor injury and he did dressing and tabs. But this guy raised about his dental issue and we asked the doctor whether there is any impact to dental. As he is being general physician he can't say about dental but it seems like a major injury, his gum might have got pressed (in worst case).

Yesterday, this guy came back to me and said because of the injury to his 2 front teeth pressed back and all his teeth are misaligned. So he called a dentist and as quoted by the dentist it will cost him around RM 7.5k and he is asking me to pay for it.

When the accident happened his upper lip got swelling but I didn't see any swelling or bleed from teethes. Even doctor didn't say anything about his teeth much during examination at the time of first aid.

Now this guy is stopping me and my wife everywhere in condo premises and asking about compensation for his dental medication. I feel this guy is playing with me to get some money from me.

So I want to know, can someone sue you on accidents while playing games? And am I required to pay compensation for such accident even no one intentionally caused it?

Tell him to sue first, then talk.

Great idea.
Luckily it is his own racket that has hit his lips. If hit at his xxxxxx, might gotten a  "Impotency" Lawsuit... but then how to sue his own racket?  He is holding his own racket right?
