Proneness to injury is a natural inclination with many causes: psychological, physical, physiological and social. We describe 9 patients with this problem. Most injuries, usually the result of falls, occur in 3 populations: young sports persons, workmen, and the elderly or those with chronic disorders. By analyzing the cases we can identify those prone to accidents and injury so as to improve prevention.
