The head of Alliance Intelligence knew that, while Tycho might have been TheMole, he was innocent of that particular crime, and was drawing the trial out as long as possible to lull his Imperial counterpart into a false sense of security.]]

** Perhaps the most powerful instance of this trope in ''M*A*S*H'' is "Fallen Idol", where Hawkeye's attempt to arrange some R&R for Radar results in Radar being caught in a mortar attack. The next time we see Radar, he's wheeled into the 4077th's OR and placed right in front of Hawkeye. Hawkeye is so distraught with guilt that he goes on a bender and has to leave a subsequent OR session to vomit, blows up at Radar after Radar chides him for the previous issue, and receives a WhatTheHellHero from everyone around him.



** and that's leaving out the more minor job-induced injuries that didn't require hospitalization.

Not a cheap plot in and of itself, it does however have to be used in moderation, otherwise things become preposterous. The worst offenders are ''{{ER}}'' (which had Mark's tumor, Carter and Lucy being stabbed, Jing-Mei and Pratt's car crash, Romano's arm being chopped off, Frank's heart attack, a swath of births and much more) and ''Series/ThePractice'', which by the end had the characters involved in so many personal court battles that you had to wonder how the firm made any money.

* Happened to the paramedics of ''ThirdWatch'' quite a bit. Bobby was ''shot'' (and killed), Carlos was frequently in hospital for various amusing minor injuries (and one not-so-amusing major disease), Alex was killed in an explosion, and in the PilotEpisode Jerry was shot and had to retire.

* ''Series/{{CSI}}'': In an early season, Nick is a suspect in the murder of a hooker who he had slept with the night before (it was a set-up). Then from season 5 on this became a regular event during {{Sweeps}} and SeasonFinale episodes. Nick gets kidnapped in the end of season 5, Brass gets shot at the end of season 6, 4th ep of season 7 sees Greg get badly beat up when he tries to stop a violent gang, (it kills one of the gang but saves their intended victim) ''and'' Sara is kidnapped by the Miniature Killer at the end of the season. Season 8, Warrick is suspected of going vigilante and killing a mob boss they couldn't convict, gets cleared, then ''shot'' by the real perp. [[spoiler: Warrick dies and the perp is also one of their own, Undersheriff [=McKeen=].]] Then, Ecklie gets shot, and there's a connection with McKeen pulling strings from prison.

* ''Series/HillStreetBlues'' had a story arc leading up to the Season 1 finale in which Detective Larue was under Internal Affairs investigation for accepting a bribe from an undercover Narcotics cop... who identified himself, produced his badge and basically offered JD a bundle of twenties to let him go to get out of the extra paperwork. Captain Furillo suspects there's something more going on and has Detectives Washington and Belker scope out this drug squad guy. [[spoiler: He turns out to be [[DirtyCop on the take]] and using his kickbacks to support a SecretOtherFamily.]]
