The average person suffers from at least four sore throats, six cuts and two nose bleeds every 12 months.

Four shaving cuts, two cases of toothache and four cricked necks mean the average person experiences a short period of pain at least once every three days.

It was also found that 31 per cent of the respondents described themselves as clumsy or accident-prone.

However, the Brits claimed that more than 70 per cent of the accidents they experienced were because of some other person's fault.

Results showed that the average respondent had experienced at least two car crashes or serious bumps in their life so far, while the average person will undergo two surgeries, at least three hospital trips and one case of broken bones in their time.

It was also found that one can also expect to endure 181 burns and will pull a muscle 242 times.
