Today, I stood up at my desk and fell. I landed on the arm of my desk chair. There was a loud crack when the plastic in the chair broke. My co-workers heard. They didn't come to check on me because I didn't scream. FML

Bystander effect at it's finest. "If it's really that bad, someone else will help." You could either be passive aggressive and never help anyone unless they directly ask, or try taking the lack of caution about trying to limit liability issues by investigating possible injuries up with HR or whatever department handles workplace safety where you work.

Pretty easily, especially if OP is prone to low blood pressure, dehydrated, has POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome), inner ear damage, an ear infection, poor joint stability, muscle weakness, or general poor coordination, or any one of dozens of other reasons. Basically, it's just a lot easier to "just fall" than people think.
