The symbol of an injury in a dream is a manifestation of pain that you may be experiencing, or about to experience in your waking life. It is not uncommon to dream of a broken leg when you are perfectly healthy, only to have an accident the next day in your waking life, despite how careful you might be. If someone else in your dream suffers an injury or comes to you with an injury you may hear of them experiencing problems in their life, or they may come to you with a problem in the future. If you are the one inflicting injury in your dream, pay attention to who the person is that you are inflicting pain upon. You may be hurting someone in your day to day life without even realizing it, and your dream is trying to suggest as much to as you as subtly as possible.
