When we have an accident or injury, we often feel blind-sided. We never saw it coming! Well, sometimes you can astrologically. First, you want to see harsh aspects (square, quincunx, opposition; conjunction by Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto) to the body part that is affected in the chart. Say someone breaks their foot - in that case, you'd want to see harsh aspects to their Neptune, 12th house cusp, or 12th house ruler, as these all rule your feet. If someone sprains their wrist, you'd want to see harsh aspects to their Mercury, 3rd house cusp, or 3rd house ruler, as these all rule your wrists. You don't need a bunch of harsh aspects, especially if it shows in their chart that they're prone to accidents/injuries in general, or difficulties with that part of their body.
Next, you need Mars. Mars is the ruler of accidents and injuries, so you'll almost always see Mars involved. This can be transit Mars making a harsh aspect or in the house ruling the body part (or the 1st house, which rules you in general), or it can be natal Mars, with harsh aspects to natal Mars bringing in the accident/injury energy.
Lastly, you need a trigger, which will usually be the Sun or Mercury harshly hitting that area of the chart affected or the 1st house on the day of the accident/injury. The Sun and Mercury move quickly, so they set it off. Venus moves about as fast, but she's a gentler planet, so harsh Venus generally won't do it.
Usually, the person will have a predisposition in their natal chart to accidents/injuries, which will show up with prominent Aries or Mars, or harsh aspects to the Sun. If not that, you'll see harsh aspects to the part of the body in question, like harsh Mars to Neptune for someone who breaks their foot. Another thing to consider is their progressed chart, which could show an aspect being made by progressed planets to natal planets, or progressed-to-progressed planet aspects, which wouldn't show up in the natal chart, but can give some predisposition to an accident/injury (it's just not permanent).
