I was at work and I was cleaning under a meat slicer and the whole thing fell straight down on top of my right hand and wrist, breaking my hand.

I fell off a motorcycle and the clutch lever snapped over my left little finger causing a small fracture to the distal phalange and left it slightly dislocated. The hand specialist seems to think the best course of action would be to fuse the two bones together therefore losing the ability to move it. I did the injury about 3 weeks ago now so other options are no longer available.

I hit a 55MPH softball at the batting cage with an aluminum bat. My hand hurts so bad right now that I can't breathe!

While at a friend's with a balcony, we got somewhat adventurous and climbed onto scaffolding that was just outside. On my return jump to the balcony, my feet met wet wood and slid out from under me. I landed on my behind and my right hand... A metacarpal broke in two places, but the bottle I was holding with my left survived.
