Freak accident. Both parties were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Yeah, one of the inevitable results of our litigious society is that there's the feeling that any time anything bad happens, it has to be someone's fault, and someone has to pay. Fell off a ladder? The ladder company should have explained gravity better. Cross the street between intersections at night wearing dark clothes? The driver should have psychically known your intentions. Get hit by a meteorite? The govmint shouldn't have cancelled project eyeball.
Sometimes shit just happens. Sometimes everyone is acting reasonably and someone still gets hurt. Sometimes a tree just falls on you. It's not fair, it's not just, it's not deserved. It's life.
Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.
