My smash follow through has often caught the fingers of my non-racquet hand. That smarts.
Here's another one.
When defending against a smash, do you sometimes end up playing a shot behind you? For me it is usually because I defend backhand, and when the smash is aimed at my racquet side hip. If I can't take the shuttle in front of my, I do the bullfighter thing where you move the body out of the way and hit the shuttle after it has gone past the body. The other day I did this and really whipped the racquet to drive the shuttle back rather than block it to the net. Unfortunately my follow through was onto my arse. The impact of the frame left a big red line (which could have been hard to explain)

During one session of badminton, one of our members (nickname: Chinese Assasin) attempted to hit a backhand drive. Only problem was, that his partner was standing right next to him. Chinese Assasin hit his partner just above the eye splitting the skin. blood was pouring everywhere and his partner had to go to hospital for eight hours to get the skin above his eye stiched. Hence the nickname Chinese Assasin.
Who ever said badminton was a non-contact sport was lying.

That seems to be a very common mishap among badders. Theoratically, it shouldn't happen if the player uses the non-racquet arm as a counterbalance.

Either bad footwork, or bad technique, or laziness, or combination thereof.

I've been hit in the EAR!!!! My partner was smashing behind me and i was infront of the net. It felt like some monkey jumped up and bit me. IT HURTS!!!!!! My ear was burning for 30 minutes.
I've been hit on the shoulder,..face, back. head...tummy. they dont hurt, cuz XXL t-shirts helps
I keep hitting myself on my left knee at the same spot. I dont know if i hit it or i got it by scratching my knee on the floor from leeping trying to get a drop shot. It will never heal because i play too often and it hurts !!!

a friend of mind swing his racket direct to his partner face when both of them rushing for the shuttle as a result his partner had a swollen face and have to rest for couple of weeks!is that incredible?

Talking about badminton injuries, in my case, mostly come from my shoes and my partner.
Shoes, if not tied firm enough, I can almost certain I will sprain my ankles. Most of the time are minor and the injuries go away in few days.
Partner, this is most interesting. One partner who I regularly play with at the club swings his racket like he is playing singles. A few times, we were in defense position and he returned a smash with backhand "swing". The swing followed its full path from left, all the way to the right making a 180 degree half circle, and it hit my arms, head, sometimes, legs...anything you can think of. This happens so many times that I have to maintain at least few feet distance from him on the court.
Another partner, also very "dangerous" guy. When he fixes his eyes on a shot, noone can stop him. He would make a full power swing into your head even though the shot does not belong to him, especially coming right in the middle. Man, we crashed few times in the past and he almost broke my MP 99 !

hit ur partner back
When I used to play mixed, I slap my partner's butt with my raquet if she misses her shots.
hope she didnt end up with an injury after the season lol

I was once warming up to play a match and was loosening my wrists up by flicking my racquet about in all directions.....my mind wandered and I painfully hit myself where it hurts THE most. Needless to say it brought my partner and opposition (who were friends of mine) great pleasure to see me crouching down taking deep breaths!!

i kept on hitting myself on the knee, and i had bruises for like a week
last week, while playing a match, my partner hit the birdie right between our opponent's leg, that XXX area, dunno if it hurts but it sure is really embarrassing since we r playing on the court right in front of the audience stand

Sheez! Just today, I managed to hit myself on the non-racquet elbow while trying to retrieve a baseline fast clear Mia-Audina style. There's still a sore reddish dot right on the bloody knuckle of the elbow.
LiLYu, it's not too bad if you get hit there... just pray that the other guy/gal doesn't have a speeding bullet of a smash. Most of the time, the bagginess of the shorts/trackpant cushions the shot. I think Jimbouk's experience tops the embarassing AND painful experience catagory.
