Little Accidents

TQC,

A child between 2 1/2 to 3 1/2 years old reaches up and randomly grabs at things on a tabletop, and in the process knocks over a cup of hot coffee. The scalding liquid ends up leaving a scar on the child's leg. One of the parents says it's the child's fault (for reaching up at the table). Do you agree? Or do you think the parents, or nearby adults, bear some responsibility for not minding the child or the environment?

Also, would you have sought medical attention right after the accident or just let it go as one of those dings that happen to kids?

Edited because of typo.
