First4lawyers investigated different UK cities to discover the most common personal injuries in each.

Residents of Cardiff and Norwich would appear to be most at risk of suffering a personal injury, according to the research. They topped the injury charts in three different categories. Geordies and residents of Sheffield were top in two categories each, whilst Birmingham, Glasgow, Leeds, London and Manchester avoided a top spot in any injury category.

Of course not all of these sufferers will have filed a personal injury claim but 19% of Newcastle residents claim to have suffered a back injury. Personal injury lawyers in Bristol may see the largest number of compensation claims for broken arms and bones in the hand, with 8% of residents saying they have sustained such injuries.

Sheffield topped the league for neck and head injuries, whilst residents of Cardiff suffered the most bruised and cracked ribs, broken legs and broken toe and foot bones.
