Unintentionally Hurting Someone

I never had really worried about hurting someone during my time in Aikido until I did it Friday night in practice. Had someone (relatively inexperienced) in sankyo and that person thought they could get out. Bad move on Uke's part as they ended up with a VERY sore sprained wrist. I felt bad about it over the weekend, but have come to the realization that what we do has an inherent danger to it and sometimes people get hurt, especially when they should have taken ukemi. On the other side, it made me realize that I need to continue to make sure I take care of my partners as much as possible without worrying so much as to destroy my own practice.
