    How to escape a dangerous situation – a personal injury lawyer in Hyde Park

    No matter how safe and streetwise you are in your day to day life, there will inevitably come a time when you find yourself in a dangerous situation and need to work out how to get yourself out of it without harm or putting yourself in any more danger. The most basic thing you should do in any situation is try to remain calm so that you can really think about what you need to do next and plan your next move. But there are other things you can do as well to keep yourself as safe as possible.

    Be aware of your surroundings

    Wherever you are, even if you are in an area that you feel that you know well and are comfortable in, make sure that you are not distracted and are completely aware of what is going on around you. This way you can notice hazards before they pose a real threat, and work to get yourself out of a situation before it has fully begun.

    Make plans

    If you can think about the worst case scenario for any situation you may get into then you can also think of a plan to get out of it. If you are doing something which strikes you as particularly dangerous or unusual then you should already have plans in place for if you get into trouble.

    Stay calm

    When any dangerous situation presents itself, the first thing you are likely to do is stop breathing properly and panic. This is natural but will stop you from thinking of a helpful solution. Take a deep breath and focus your mind, allowing yourself to panic only once the situation is resolved.

    Look out for yourself

    As selfish as it may sound, you should always think about yourself first in any dangerous situation. Get yourself out and to safety, and then see what you can do to help any other people involved in the situation with you.
