We all do this for fun (maybe a few bucks is involved). If we find a league where people get along and want them to continue in the future you need to do the fair thing.
We all can not be our computers all day so we can not pull an offer if something happens. So I don't think it is fair to say someone was at fault for leaving a trade offer out there.

The player wasn't injured when I accepted the trade and then went on the DL while it was in the middle of being voted on. The consensus in my league, and the consensus here on the Cafe, was that the trade should be evaluated based on the value of each player involved WHEN THE TRADE WAS ACCEPTED.
If you accepted a trade for a player whose value declined AFTER you hit the Accept button, it really is just tough luck. If you overturn the trade based on an ex post facto injury, then you're only hurting the team sending the player, who did nothing wrong but make a legitimate trade with very fortunate timing, by forcing him to keep the player he just fairly traded away.
As someone who has been faced with this issue and resolved it, I would recommend you go the same route... evaluate trades the same way they were evaluated by the managers involved. Injuries are always a risk with fantasy sports and we know it comes with territory when we get into the game.
