In brief: Almost anything...
The hands are very often injured because they are our connection to the outside world.
Symptoms and signs of hand fractures include pain, deformity, point tenderness, swelling. They can be caused by direct blows to the hand, twisting injuries, and crush injuries.

In brief: Physics
Any force to the hand that can generate enough energy can cause a hand fracture.
A finger twisted in a dog leash or jammed while tucking in sheets can be fractured. A hand bumped into the corner of a table or smashed during an auto accident can also be fractured.
