You caught an edge while turning right and fell forward, is your left foot strapped in? If so it sounds like you are leaning over the edge of the board and just falling over. You shouldn't be able to catch your toe side edge with your weight on your front foot only. Also if you are going too slow and trying to force a turn , you'll just fall over. Strap your board on carpet and and pickup your rear foot , rock heel and toe side. This is how it should feel getting off the lift.
After reading your other post I wonder if you leaning on your rear foot when you get nervous off the lift. If you lean on your rear foot , it will bring the rear foot around and you WILL catch the edge, Bad. Knee pad will help with impact, a brace can also be used as a preventive measure.
