    Sorry! My friend, I didn't mean to hurt you. It was an accident. __________.

    Re: No harm done/intended!

    I would say No harm intended.

    Re: No harm done/intended!

    I would use "No harm intended" because you did not intentionally mean to cause harm even though you did.

    You will hope the injured party will reply to you by saying either No harm done or No hard feelings. These statements will indicate that they are not holding a grudge.

    "No harm done." and "No hard feelings?" (note the question mark) fit the above. "No harm intended" is redundant as you have already said you did not mean to hurt him.

    Sorry! My friend, I didn't mean to hurt you. It was an accident. No harm done. (here you are stating that you don't believe that there were no consequences to the accident)

    Sorry! My friend, I didn't mean to hurt you. It was an accident. No hard feelings? (here you are sort of asking for forgiveness. You don't want this accident to affect your relationship)
