There are two main places in England called China Town, or Chinatown. One is in Westminster, London and the other is in Manchester. London’s Chinatown is the largest, with an estimated 40,000+ people living there. Manchester’s Chinatown has an estimated 21,000+ population. Both Chinatown’s are inhabited mostly by people of Asian descent, particularly Chinese people. However, both Chinatown’s are multicultural with people of Japanese, Korean, Malaysian, Mongolian and Indonesian descent living in harmony.
If you have been injured in an accident in China Town, you may be wondering what to do next. Being involved in any accident or sustaining any injury can be traumatising, but it’s important for you to keep a clear mind and focus on the facts at this early stage, before rushing into a claim with a solicitor in China Town. Below, you will find some valuable information about what to do if you have been injured in Chinatown.
- Seek medical attention, if you have not already done so
If you have already visited your GP or if you were admitted to hospital after your accident, you likely already know the extent of your injury, your potential recovery period and your prognosis for the future. If you have not yet sought medical advice, you should do so as soon as your injury becomes apparent. Many injuries won’t have any symptoms until 24 or 48 hours afterwards, so it’s important to keep this in mind and be prepared to visit your GP.
- Focus on your recovery
Follow your GP’s advice, always. Your GP may prescribe medication for you or recommend pain killers. They may also recommend time off work and to avoid any strenuous activity, such as going to the gym. You should have a clear understanding of your recovery period after you have discussed your injury with your GP. If you do, don’t be tempted to rush back into your everyday life – you could make your injury worse and prolong pain and discomfort.
- Think about making a claim for compensation
If you have sustained an injury in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you should think about making a claim for compensation. If you would like to find out more about making a claim for financial compensation, a solicitor in China Town will be able to help you. It is your legal right to make a claim for compensation if an accident wasn’t your fault, and it’s only fair that you are able to look after yourself financially and cover any losses as a result of your injury.
