Will fleet management provide for my injury claim in St Martin?
Road traffic accidents happen all too often on UK Roads, every day 5 people lose their lives in this way. They can happen at any time and can be very costly, particularly for companies that own a fleet of vehicles, the costs can spiral to many thousands of pounds each year. If your employment is as a driver for a company that has a fleet of vehicles and you are in an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to make an injury claim in St Martin.
Will Fleet Management help my injury claim in St Martin?
Not really. Quite often the supplier of the vehicles have something in place to make sure that companies do not suffer too much by having more than one vehicle off the road at a time. They will provide courtesy vehicles and ensure any damages to the fleet vehicles are dealt with as quickly as possible, even liaising with the insurance companies if need be. But their main concern is the vehicles and keeping the company fleet on the road. Personal injuries are a different matter and it would not be them that would help you with your injury claim.

Can you tell me about making a personal injury compensation claim?
There are three main criteria you have to fit to make a claim resulting from a road traffic accident:
- The accident must have happened within the last three years
- The fault must have been someone else’s
- You must have sought medical treatment for your injuries
Even as the passenger in a vehicle, you may still fit the above criteria and be able to make a personal accident compensation claim. Not all injuries are immediately apparent; some problems can develop over time, hence the three-year time limit.
If you fit the criteria, you should contact Accident Advice Helpline who have over 13 years’ experience in dealing with road traffic accident personal injury compensation claims. In that time, we have helped many thousands of claimants receive the compensation they were entitled to.

They will discuss the ins and outs of your accident and resulting injuries and then, only if you want to, start the processes of your claim.
We also have a compensation calculator, called the 30-second test, on our website that will tell you if you qualify and give you some guidance as to the amount of compensation you can expect to receive.
