Today, I attended a Buddhist prayer service for my religion and philosophy course. When the service was over, everyone stood up. Unfortunately, my legs and feet had fallen asleep so much that I lost balance and tackled a monk into the shrine. I'm expected to pay for injuries and damages. FML

Even if it was an accident in many cases if it causes significant damage you are still going to be expected to pay. The notion of I didn't mean to so I don't have to pay doesn't work.

Well, now you have a unique experience with Buddhists. Very rare if not unique. I have never heard of Buddhist monks asking for damages and injury costs. Were they monks or just regular visitors? Maybe you tackled a classmate.

Next time, get your land legs before moving after a meditation/prayer. And stay near a wall or chair to help you up. I honestly don't see how this happened, but hopefully you learned something. I'd be surprised if Buddhists were going to go after you for money... Not really our thing.

No one says "I know you didn't mean to do it, so I'll be happy to pay for my own medical bills and eat the thousands of dollars in damage you just caused."
