If you were injured on a busy high street or in the city centre and it was someone else’s fault, you might be looking for a personal injury lawyer in Inverkeilor. If so, Accident Advice Helpline is here for you.
How to stay safe when shopping
Being safe when you are shopping is more than just knowing where you are and watching out for any hazards which could trip you up and injure you. It is also about being streetwise and knowing what the dangers are from other people and the shopping centre itself, as well as preparing for any difficulties which may occur so that you can deal with them quickly. Here are some tips on staying safe when you are out shopping.
- Let someone know where you are. Whenever you go out on your own you should tell someone where you are going and when you will be back. This will help to alert people if there is any trouble and will get you the help you need sooner.
- Look for landmarks near the entrance of a shopping centre. In larger shopping centres it can be very easy to lose your way. If you look out for a particular store or landmark by the entrance then you should be able to find your way back more easily, by using signs or asking around.
- Keep your possessions close to you. If you are carrying a bag, make sure that it is around the front of your body so that no one can dip into it, and make sure everything else is close to you so that you are not an easy target for pickpockets or attackers.
- Be aware of others. Try not to walk along talking on the phone or listening to music so that you are always aware of the other people around you and whether they pose a threat or not. This will help you to avoid a dangerous situation before you become a target.
