How to deal with public transport accidents in North Ferriby
If you are injured in public transport accidents in North Ferriby, it may be difficult to know what to do next. If you have been badly injured and you are not at home, you will feel vulnerable and frightened, as well as unsure how to get yourself to a doctor or hospital. If you are thinking of claiming compensation for your accident, there are also things you need to do there and then to back up your claim. Here are some tips on what you should do if you have had an accident in a public place.
- Get help. The most important thing at this point is your own health. If you have had an accident in a public place then help should already be with you, as people come to see if you are okay, but if you have not been seen then don’t be too shy to make noise and call for help. If there is no one around then use your phone to call an ambulance.
- Note the time, place and date. You don’t need to write this down, just make a mental note of the time and where exactly you are whilst you are still there. If you do decide to go ahead with a claim for compensation then knowing this information will go a long way towards making your claim successful.
- Note any dangerous conditions. Not every accident is someone else’s fault, sometimes an accident is simply bad luck. But if you do feel that your accident has been caused by dangerous conditions then look out for these and make a mental note of what is around you. If you have a chance, take a picture with your camera phone.
