As Collateral Angst states, Some stories make things even worse by having the casualty apologize for being hurt. They will use phrases such as "being a burden" or "letting you down" to express their guilt.
They are the Butt-Monkey, The Woobie, and/or the Chew Toy, and they apologize for it. When dangerous weapons are involved, thus pushing this trope Up to Eleven, it can don the name "Sorry I Fell Into Your Fire" or "Sorry I Bumped Into Your Bullet".
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })Compare and contrast Wounded Gazelle Gambit. Compare Why Did You Make Me Hit You? and Apologizes a Lot. My Fist Forgives You is the inverse of this.
Note: This is not when a character makes I Meant to Do That comments in the style of "I hit him in the tray with my face." This is when the person being attacked apologizes for being attacked.

In Dept Heaven Apocrypha, Nessiah's lack of self-confidence makes him apologize to Milanor incessantly (read: whenever the topic arises) for Milanor having to take care of him, no matter how many times Milanor insists that he's doing it because he wants to. Nessiah also still blames himself for the abuse he's suffered at Hector's hands, which isn't helping him too much mentally...

Desperate Housewives: Gabby finds evidence suggesting her soon-to-be ex husband, Carlos, could be on the verge of getting a very well-paying job. She decides she's going to woo him back so she can take him for even more money. They sleep together. He then reveals that he planted the fake evidence with the full knowledge that she'd steal it, read it, and then try to rob him blind. Outraged that she's been proven beyond all reasonable doubt to be a lying, manipulative, whorish bitch, she pushes Carlos out of the upstairs window. He survives with no damage lasting beyond the end of the episode. The closing narration still tries to suggest that Carlos was in the wrong, and that he feels guilty for being so cruel to Gabby.

She's not directly apologizing to her attacker, but after Lady Sybil is briefly taken hostage in The Fifth Elephant, she apologizes to her husband for "letting him down." It's more an apology for being tearful and shaken about it than an apology for being taken hostage, but it's enough to seriously freak him out.

Colette of Tales of Symphonia has this habit. Considering that the "troubles" she feels like she's burdening people with are almost invariably not her fault, but also occasionally life-threatening, this frustrates everyone else to no end.

Baccano!'s Jacuzzi Splot is prone to this due to his tendency to be a Martyr Without a Cause. On the low scale, he'll apologize for pretty much anything, up to and including being shoved. At the other side of the spectrum, he's blamed himself personally for the death of three men he encountered the day before — not because he killed them, but because his gang took them down (against his protests) while they were trying to murder him.

Pokémon has Audino. Many players go out of their way to hunt down these pokemon, as they give insane amounts of experience when knocked out. At level 35 and above, some Audino will actually heal the player's pokemon while getting the tar beaten out of them by said pokemon. Several tropes come to mind.

An auto-collision version occurs in Analyze This. After Dr. Sobol rear-ends the mobsters, Jelly tells him "it's all right; it was our fault for being in front of you like that. Forget about it!" Then again, Jelly didn't REALLY think it was their fault; he was just trying to get rid of Dr. Sobol before he noticed the kidnapped mobster in the trunk.

Scrapped Princess... the title character does this quite often. Apologizing to her older siblings for always having to protect her, wondering if the world would be better off without her, etc. And, of course, she's never really done anything wrong - apparently, she threatens the continued existence of the world simply by living. And, apparently, by dying. Girl just can't catch a break.

Tohru Honda of Fruits Basket does this quite a bit too, not wanting to burden anyone with her troubles despite those troubles being pretty drastic. This is best seen in the beginning of the series, where while her grandfather's house is being renovated, she resorts to living in a tent, rather than bother any of her friends by staying with them.
Also Ritsu Sohma. The two of them occasionally get in to apologizing contests.

In Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, the heron prince Rafiel is like this. He's exceptionally weak in combat (he seriously can't even do damage (without using spell imitating items) but has a fantastic support ability), due to a paralyzing illness, which leaves him unable to fly, despite his massive wings and so soft-spoken that Ike says he's "afraid that he'll kill him if he shouts too loud." He apologizes when Ike calls him out for it. (If his allies fail to protect him in combat and he falls, he apologizes for that, too...but then, several of the characters do that, very dramatically.)
