In brief: Depends
It isn't the fall.
It's the sudden stop! it doesn't matter why you fall, it matters where you fall and how you land. A person in an active seizure is more likely to get injured if their muscles are already vigorously contracting since the joints won't yield as much when the body meets resistance.
