Which one of these is a correct sentence for an event that has just occured:

1. I would have fallen off.
or
2. I would have fell off.

The second is definitely wrong.

You could also write:

I might have fallen off had it not been for..
or
I could have fallen off ..

Hi,

No, you need to say I would have fallen off.

Best wishes, Clive

No, I'm sorry. Please see the prior posts which make it clear that it's would have fallen.

Also, please note that the original post is from 2003, and the original poster is probably no longer here to profit from further advice, especially since the correct answer was given long ago. We welcome your contributions in more recent threads.
