Immediate Action

If you have been subjected to or witnessed physical violence of any type, the first step is always the same: get to a safe place as soon as possible, and call a trusted friend or advocate.

If you have been subjected to physical violence, consider seeking medical attention. Take care to preserve any evidence of the incident, even if you are undecided about whether you will file a claim or take legal action. Should you choose to do so, this evidence may assist in proving that a criminal offense occurred or may be helpful in obtaining a protection order.
