In March 2023 he was involved in a car accident in Portugal alongside his teammates and coaches of the Spanish national team.

Plata was ejected from the vehicle through the windscreen and sustained a broken femur, as well as multiple injuries to his face and body. He returned to competition in August 2023. (Instagram profile, 23 Aug 2023, 17 Mar 2023; diaridetarragona.com, 17 Mar 2023)

He sustained a broken vertebra in October 2020. He continued competing with the injury, and had to strengthen the area in order to avoid pain. (ara.cat, 24 Aug 2022; viladecans.cat, 01 Jul 2021)
