Of course accidents happen and when you're just learnign to skate or using Skorpions fo rthe first time you're probably going to have a couple of falls but to try to reduce the risk of injury follow these four simple tips:
1. Protect your head! Your brain is the most important organ in your body so keep it safe by wearing a helmet.
2. Obey all traffic laws and lights. Just beacuse you're not in a car or not walking doesn't mean that you can do what you like. Vehicle and pedestrian rules also apply to skaters.
3. Be observant. Know your surrounding; you can't rely on other people to watch out for you or follow the rules so watch out for yourself.
4. Check your gear. Make sure your skates and protective gear is in good working order.
