It's is not reasonable to demand a whole new bow because your string broke.
If the string broke because you were not paying attention it is you who is at fault. You would be responsible for any damage caused by the breaking string.
If the string broke because something on the bow cause premature wear only that part and anything damaged would need to be replaced.

I had a string break because I didn't pay attention. It broke a limb. After I paid to replace the string and the limbs the bow worked fine for 10 more years of active use and it's still going strong.

Deal with the place you bought the bow first. If they don't give you any joy then call Martin.

Had a string break on my Shadowcat at full draw, KERPOW!:o
Sometimes it happens...sounds like you need a new string, as opposed to a new bow!;)
