Never broken a bone, but I had a rude motorbike injury when I was twelve where I busted my kneecap pretty bad. The scar's still sort of there. Also scalding hot coffee was spilled on me when I was a kid, but that absolutely wasn't my fault.

I did something similar landing on my head when i was younger.

I trapped my right pinky finger in a door way when I was about 3. A gust of wind blew the door shut on my finger. I don't really remember it but it must have really hurt as it took the top of my finger off. To make it even worse the hospital receptionist accused my mum of doing it on purpose.

Also i fell on my face one time. I think i broke my nose and I also fell down the stairs once. My knee hurt for ages. I did get out of running during school sports though.

I broke my left arm and left leg, and I once sprained my ankle while playing tennis.

When I was skiing in Colorado a few years ago, they made the ski's and boot's too tight. I had a massive fall, and when my ski should have come away from one of the boots it didn't My knee twisted completely out of its socket and, needless to say, dislocated. Worst pain I've ever experienced, when they were taking me to the hospital I was in a right state. But then flying home the next day first class made up for it

I fell down a flight of stairs and wrecked my ankle/leg three years ago. Thankfully nothing was broken.

According to my aunts it would be the time I once had a five pence coin lodged in my throat when I was a toddler. We have no idea where they dreamed this story up as nothing like this has ever happened to anyone in our family. Most of my cousins think it's true and that I was rushed to hospital to get it removed from the back of my throat.

Holy Crap!!! What did your parents do???

I've never had an injury that has required hospital attention other than one I don't remember as I was a baby when my mum accidentally scalded me when she dropped a kettle, burnt my foot but no permanent injury.

I did almost impale myself on some railings once....must have been about ten, I was climbing over them and the tip of the spike at the top went into my side, like poking about inside, I managed to unimpale myself without causing further damage, and just held my side till I stopped bleeding and went home. Bit weird to feel some bit of metal poking at your ribs and what not.

The garage door fell on my hand one time and broke my middle finger, that hurt a bunch.

The most time I'd spent in a hospital was when I had an appendectomy but that wasn't an accidental injury.

Similar to LJT probably the worst was one I don't remember because I was really little, my shoulder was accidentally dislocated when I was yanked away from the stove, likely about to cause more serious damage to myself.

I had two minor knee sprains from dance class (or maybe it dislocated and popped right back in) and one pretty bad ankle sprain - I actually don't remember now how I did that but I remember my ankle being quite purple for a week. Also about 3-4 years ago I fell flat on my nose running for the bus outside my home...it was quite bloodied at the time and quite a swollen sight for about a week but the doctor said I didn't break it.

I did see a doctor for some of these but none required a hospital visit.

My mom naturally freaked out when she came home. Happened to be coming around the corner of the house with my face covered in blood when she pulled up. Once she got over the shock of what happened my brother really got it. Despite what he did being incredibly stupid I know it was an accident and that he felt really bad. Unfortunately for him I wasn't the one who was determining his punishment
