    Hi,

    I'm translating a text about an incapacity allowance and the word "uitgevallen met klachten ..." is written very often. I can't manage to understand what this means precisely. Could you help me with that ?

    Thank you in advance and have a nice day :)

    I quite agree. I am inclined to think that it first referred to machines coming to a standstill, not working any longer, fro reasons beyond our control, for no clear reason [as is suggested by the 'vallen']...

    Dankjewel. That was what I think so now I'm sure. Wish you a good day
