How to avoid being injured in a fight and when to make an injury claim against the other person
It is never a good idea to get involved in a fight in the first place, as you will have to understand that being involved in a fight means that your chances of being seriously injured are much higher than if you walked away from the fight, or simply tried to defend yourself until help could get to you.
If you do find that someone is trying to fight you, try not to attack first or even throw a punch, as later on it can be argued that you were just as to blame for the fight as the other person.
The basic rule of thumb for safety in any fight situation is not to fight back, but rather to try to fend the person off until someone steps in to move the two of you apart. However, you can still be injured just being defensive, so it is worthwhile knowing how you can stay as safe as possible. In the event that you are hurt, you may want to make an injury claim in Blaenau Gwent.
The easiest way to avoid being injured in a fight is to not be involved in the fight at all. If you see an opportunity to escape the situation that you find yourself in, take it and get away as quickly as you possibly can.
Defend, don’t attack.
If you try to put all of your energy in defending yourself from the blows that are being thrown at you, you are more able to avoid injury than if you were trying to attack back. Remember that if you are attacking then you are just as much at fault for the accident.
Ask for help.
If there are people around, watching the fight, ask them to call for help or to call the police. If the attacker knows that the police are on the way then they may be more concerned with getting themselves away from the situation that with continuing to fight you.
