If a person accidentally damages or destroys his neighbors property, and might reasonably have foreseen and prevented it but did not, and so harms his neighbor negligently, he must bear the full loss alone, restoring to his neighbor the full value of what was damaged or destroyed (Exo. 21:36; compare Exo. 22:6).
