In brief: Depends

Bodily injury is possible if the seizure occurs in certain places or occasions, but single seizures are unlikely to cause major problems.
Repeated seizures are different and need immediate evaluation and treatment especially if they occur close together (status epilepticus).

In brief: Postictal

Immediately after, some patients have a period of confusion lasting several minutes, and later fogginess, exhaustion, trouble concentrating.
Rarely, a focal seizure will experience a todd's paralysis with unilateral weakness lasting several days. In most cases there is no acute injury, but sometimes, a broken bone can occur.
