If you are the owner of the content of the video,, then the other person cannot claim any damages.
If the content of the video belongs to the person claiming ownership, then you are advised to remove the content from youtube as without the owner's permission, you are not permitted to upload content belonging to others.
Once you remove the content, the owner cannot claim any further damages.

The internet is not a lawyer and neither are you.
Talk to a real lawyer about your legal issue.

You have to take a written permission from the owner of the video. Otherwise he has the right to file a case against you. So, please take a written permission from the owner of the video. It ll be good for you in future. Oral permission not valid.
Have a nice day.
