    How to deal with a physical threat – a personal injury lawyer in Hyde Park Corner

    There are many situations in which you may have to deal with a physical threat and get yourself out of the situation without getting harmed. Sometimes fights start on nights out and you can be drawn into these, whilst in other situations you may be approached by someone who intends to do you harm as part of a mugging or random attack. The key to staying as safe as you possibly can in this type of situation is to know what you are going to do next and follow your plan to the letter. This will help you to stay calm and react well, to avoid being injured by anyone who plans to injure you.

    • Think fast. Breathe deeply and focus your mind in order to make a plan that will aid your escape from your attacker. Panicking will only slow your mind down, and contribute to you getting injured.
    • Never throw the first punch. Even if someone is threatening to attack you, this may be all words and not an action they are actually willing to take. By throwing the first punch you may begin a physical fight that you did not want, and it also makes it more difficult for you to claim innocence in the situation.
    • Don’t be afraid. Or, at least, don’t look afraid. If you look scared then your attacker has you where they want you. If they cannot see your fear the this should throw them off a little to begin with, which may help you to escape.
    • Do what the attacker wants, within reason. If you are being mugged, it is far better to give up your possessions and run than to get into a physical altercation. If you do give up your possessions though, throw them away from you to give you a chance to escape whilst your attacker is collecting them.
