    Injury Claim in Surrey Heath


    How to get to a hospital on your own and make an injury claim if you feel that you are entitled to compensation

    It can be extremely frightening if you suffer a serious injury or are worried that you have a serious illness and are on your own. You will need to get medical attention as quickly as possible if you are worried, and even if it turns out that you aren’t suffering from anything serious, medical professionals will be able to make you comfortable and tell you what you need to do next.

    The most important thing for you to do as soon as possible is to get to a hospital, and sometimes it can take a while for an ambulance to get to you, so here are some tips for getting to hospital safely and quickly.

    • Call an ambulance. If you have a phone with you then the first thing you should always do is call an ambulance and get that on the way to you as soon as possible. Being seen by a medical professional is the most important thing you can do towards saving your own life. This also means you can just sit back and wait for someone to come and help you.
    • Call a cab. You should never try to drive if you have been badly injured in an accident. Even if you physically could drive, you are likely to be in shock, which could cause a further accident if you are not paying attention to the road. Call a cab and let them know to hurry as you need to get to a hospital.
    • Ask a friend or family member to help. If you have a friend or family member close by who is able to jump in the car and pick you up, you may find that this is a much faster option than calling an ambulance or a taxi, and even with traffic taken into consideration, you are likely to be a friend or family member’s only priority.
