I don't think you have any chance with a lawsuit as you didn't hire someone from a company but from Craigslist. Also, I am going to assume you didn't get a contract stating the terms of what was to be done and by whom, so again, you are out of luck. Also, did you make sure they had insurance before doing the job, if not again you are out of luck? And lastly, just off the top of my head, since it was a pre-existing condition to the TV they didn't do the initial damage, it just went further with them moving it. And as they said that can happen. Think of a crack in the windshield on a car, it starts out small and usually grows very quickly when you hit a bump in the road.
As for if you should try to repair it, that is beyond what knowledge I have, but I would think it might be something you could bring up with your homeowners insurance, maybe file a claim since it happened, the initial damage, during your move, maybe it would be covered, or partially covered that way.
