Law - tort - negligence.

A negligent misstatement in law is a careless and untrue statement made to a party to whom a duty of care is owed.

To be actionable in law, the party to whom the statement was made must have been caused damage by the statement.

It is not necessary for the two parties to be contracting parties.
