What's in a name? Apparently your odds of hurting yourself. Uplift Legal Funding has come up with a rather bizarre list, the top names of the "most accident-prone" men and women. Seems the firm compiled its list by combing through in-house personal injury claims. It adds that women suffer injuries 37% more often when falling over, and men are 23% more likely to have mishaps at home. "Names are an important aspect of our lives," says company chief Jared Stern.
