How to avoid being attacked and no win no fee* in Brighstone
If you are put into a position where you think you are going to be attacked then there are a few things you can do to try to remove yourself from the situation and stay safe. Being attacked can lead to serious injuries, and if there is a way to avoid it then this is best, even if it means you lose something valuable to you. You may also be able to stop an attack happening way before it is imminent, by staying out of certain situations and away from certain areas. Here are some tips on avoiding an attack and staying safe when you are out and about.
- Stick to busy areas. If you are surrounded by people and buildings then it is far less likely that you will be attacked. An attacker will usually choose someone who is alone and vulnerable, and being surrounded by others will instantly put them off.
- Don’t fight back. An attacker is usually looking to take something from you, generally something expensive such as your phone or mp3 player. If you are attacked and asked for your possessions, it is better to give them up without a fight than to fight back and risk being more seriously injured.
- Make lots of noise. Unless you feel that this will put you at more risk, the second you feel at risk from an attacker make lots of noise to attract other people’s attention. Again, someone trying to commit a crime wants to do so without being spotted. If you have everyone’s attention then they won’t want to come any closer to you and risk being spotted as well.
- Hide expensive belongings or don’t bring them out. Talking into an expensive mobile phone or wearing designer clothing is like carrying a beacon to potential muggers. Everything you have that is expensive and in sight is like a lure to a mugger and will make you more at risk of being attacked. Try to keep these items hidden when you are out on your own.
