Any fall can result in one or more injuries being sustained. As such you could fall over on a public street, at the office or even while walking up or down a set of stairs. The surroundings you are in at the time, and the surface you fall onto, can help determine whether you get away with just a few bruises, or something more serious.
As you can imagine, falling over in a public toilet isn’t something anyone would want to experience. With floors that are likely to be tiled or finished in tough vinyl, and ceramic sinks and toilets everywhere you look, the situation would not be very forgiving. You might end up suffering significant injuries if you fall over because of some kind of obstacle or hazard that was in your way.
Slipping and falling
This would perhaps be among the more likely things to happen in this situation. You might slip on a wet floor that was not signed, and as a result you could end up falling over. Since the space may be restricted, you could hit some part of your body on something else as you fall too. You might hit your head, perhaps on a sink for example, or strike your elbow on a cabinet or your knee on the floor.
This makes it very difficult to get away without any injuries at all. Of course you might be lucky, but if not, you could end up nursing a nasty and painful injury simply because you wanted to visit the public toilet.
