Caer – to fall

Spanish Verb Fall

Caer means "to fall" and is usually reflexive when the subject is concrete and is actually falling.

Por ejemplo …

Me caigo de la cama.    I’m falling out of bed.
¡Cuidado, vas a caerte! Be careful, you’re going to fall!

When caer is used figuratively, it is not reflexive.
