Default Flow Bindings - Are they an injury risk

I bought new flow bindings 2 weeks ago and used them last week in Vail. After using them for 2 days, I completely tore my left (front foot) achilese tendon on Saturday. The injury has raised concerns with respect to the bindings for 2 reasons:
- I didn't fall: The injury occured in the middle of a turn on a fairly straightforward blue run.
- A colleague at work came up to me and asked me out of nowhere if I was using flow bindings. He reported that he knows of 4 other cases where people had sustained ankle injuries on flows. He would have had absolutely no way of knowing that I had recently purchased the bindings.
