You cannot call a let because a ball falls out of your pocket. You are correct though that it is a let the first time, but then you lose a point the second time the ball/hat falls.

This had happened to me several times, I have both fallen down, gotten back up and won the point, and also lost points because I slipped and fell.
You actually have to make a call on yourself and lose the point if you:
dropped a ball, cap or any other subject on the court during point.
Just like in the case of double bounce.
