Well in my case, i played two games where i had two clashes with two different beginners, it wasnt till after the second game that i noticed the fracture on the frame. Because of these two clashes i couldnt really assign who had done the damange to my racket, although one offered to pay. If it was obviously someones fault i would probably wish for a sorry at least and some compensation to sweeten the deal. Depends how much of one persons fault it is i suppose.
What have others done?

Well Icey, you know about my mishaps! The "Dave" (there's a long story behind the reasons I put his name in quotes) person didn't offer anything, but I figured it was partly my fault since I got in his way. And I know him relatively well anyway so wasn't bothered.
One time though, I borrowed someone's racket (let's call him Mike) and during a game of singles it simply collapsed! I didn't hit the floor or clashed with another racket - it just broke! I offered him compensation but he didn't want one (at least he didn't say anything). A few months later, he wondered when I'd be getting him a new racket!!!
So I am none the wiser really!

I thought i woudl add my recently departed Ti-24 to the list here, pictures were taken after the strings were cut buy you can imagin how it looked with the head bent inwards and basically not looking like how a racquet should look.

It was during a smash hehehe :-D But there was a small chip off the paint there, how i did that im not sure as im very careful not to hit the groud with my rackets so i was thinking it was probably more substantial than i thought, though it survived restringing. Must have just hit it at the wrong angle or my bad luck, ive got a NS9K now :-D

My Loyal Soldier whom I never really appreciated, my Nanospeed 8000. I never liked the racket's performance in court, but I still think its one of the most beautiful Yonex rackets to date, and I was just getting used to it, hitting a lot more consistently with it....when all of a sudden:
Doubles clash between an Old Ti-10 and this one...the NS8k stood no chance. I don't think the Ti-10 even got a scratch, it was basically a rock to glass

There's none. You going into a doubles game with the understanding that you're entering into chaotic circumstance with likelihood of property damage and/or personal injury. Of course the better the understanding between you and your doubles partner, smaller the chaotic part will be. Looking at it this way, you're a lucky guy every time you escape injury and property damage after a doubles game.
Compensation depends on either parties, whether they're willing to compensate or not. If they're nice enough, they will offer or refused offer of compensation. It's a gentleman's sport, afterall. You can really tell what types of character you're associating with after these incidences.
