    get off (with)

    When you have no injuries or receive no punishment, is it OK to say:

    "He was lucky to get off in the accident" or should we say "He was lucky to get off with no injuries in the accident".

    Re: get off (with)

    When I saw this thread's title, I assumed you were going to ask about another meaning of 'get off with':

    'Did you hear that John got off with Mary at the party last Friday?'
    'Well, I saw them at the party, but assumed it was just a one-night stand.'
    'No - they've been going to the cinema every night since.'

    Yeah. That meaning was already clear.


    Thanks anyway.
