Americans are getting injured in some pretty bizarre manners, whether it's their own fault, or simply bad luck. To learn more about the odd incidents that sent folks all the way to the doctor, healthcare transparency company Amino analyzed over 3,000 medical codes used to describe physical injuries in 2016. The data is based on health care claims in Amino’s database, representing more than 220 million Americans.
