It's hard to explain the physic in words , but on skate your leg won't completely slide violently out of control in any direction , on foot it could definitely happen , especially if you're running or making quick movement.When the ground is full of ice on the street many people broke their leg that way , I never heard of anybody breaking their leg by just skating , sure with contact and the boards it could happen but not because of just being on the ice skating.
(Take note that I'm talking about people who have at least basic skating skills , I don't know about the people who can't skate , I can't even remember living without knowing how to skate).
The most dangerous thing with skating is when your blade get stucks in a small hole.This is really bad for the knee involved and can be very painful.
Usually people fall on ice because it's unexpected
