New riders are most apt to have an oops. The first 3 months are the worst. You just get comfy on the bike, have confidence in your skills and then you have a moment you are not ready for or something you never ever thought about.
This is one of the reasons I always recommend safety gear and some rider training. Get a copy of Proficient Motorcycling by David Hough. Read it completely, practice what you read. Then practice some more. Cheapest health care you will ever buy. And you will feel much more in control of the bike. I never had any rider training till I was 62 years old and I still wonder how I stayed upright for so long with no serious mishaps.
