How to protect yourself in an attack – no win no fee* in Crail
If you are attacked then it could lead to very serious injuries or even death. You may be attacked as part of a mugging, or as part of a larger fight. In some cases people can be attacked for almost no reason. It is important that you know how best to take care of yourself if you are attacked and how to lessen the extent of your injuries when trying to get out of an attack. Here are some tips on protecting yourself safely during an attack.
- Protect your head and neck. Your head and neck are the most vulnerable parts of your body, and an injury to either of these could lead to far more serious injuries than anywhere else. If you are being attacked and cannot get away, then hold your arms over your head and neck, or curl into a ball and let your whole body protect these areas.
- Try to get away. Don’t stay and fight if you are being attacked. If you have the opportunity to get away then do so, as soon as you can. If you are able to get away then run and don’t stop until you find yourself somewhere safe, with other people around.
- Hand over your belongings. If you are being attacked for your belongings then always remember that your life is far more important than even your most expensive possession. Throw your possessions away from you so that the potential mugger will go for those instead of coming closer to you, in which case you can run.
- Make a lot of noise. Any attacker will want to get away without being caught, so the more noise you make the better, as this will cause the attacker to want to stop what they are doing and get away before someone comes to investigate.
