3 Things You Should Do if You Are Injured in a Public Place

It's important to do the following 3 things if you are ever injured in a public place

Report It

Those responsible for causing your injury cannot rectify the fault if they do not know that there has been an accident, it’s important for your own case that you report what happened. This will also ensure the same doesn’t happen to somebody else.

Take Photos

If you are out of immediate danger and it is safe to do so, take photos of:

  • The area where the accident took place
  • What caused the accident

The better the photos are, the more chance there is of proving that someone else was at fault for your injury.

Medical Assistance

It’s important that you seek medical assistance regardless of the severity of your injury. If your injury didn’t require immediate medical support by paramedics, it’s important that you seek advice from your GP or local pharmacy as soon as you can after the accident. Without the opinion of a professional soon after you suffered an injury, it can be hard to ascertain key information needed for a claim.
