Fleet is in the county of Hampshire, just 36 miles from London and 10 miles from Basingstoke. Well known for having the largest freshwater lake in Hampshire, Fleet Pond, the town has a traditional Victorian and Edwardian High Street. For five consecutive years, the Hart District, where fleet is situated, was voted the best place to live in the whole UK.
The town has expanded in the last few years, through the development of several housing estates, including one of the largest in the country. This has resulted in a 20 per cent increase in the population in less than ten years, swelling local numbers to an estimated 36,000 people. Easily accessible from the M3 motorway, Fleet also has its own railway station and good local bus services, making it popular with commuters as well as local families.
Fleet has numerous festivals and events throughout the year including a carnival, a beer festival, a food festival and firework displays, and the annual turning on of the Christmas Lights is a popular event with everyone in the town. As well as all the organised events, Fleet has lots of attractions and things to do, no matter what age you are.
Although a typical quiet Hampshire town most of the time, just occasionally accidents can happen.

Before you do that, talk to Accident Advice Helpline. We have been making successful claims for over 16 years, and have already helped many thousands of innocent victims to win their compensation.

Road traffic accidents in Fleet
Hart District has one of the largest car ownerships per household in the country, and with the development of the new estates in and around Fleet, several of the roads are already at full capacity. Residents have raised concerns about the numbers of accidents, and plans have been put forward by various groups to try and resolve the problems. Some measures have certainly made an impact on accident numbers, but some have served to create new problems, such as restricting access to roads like the A287, A30, M3 and Fleet centre.
With roads already full, and traffic building every day, it is no wonder that sometimes road traffics in Fleet can happen. The vast majority are nothing more than a minor bump while sitting in traffic, but some can be much more, leaving innocent people badly injured.
If you have been injured in a road traffic accident that was not your fault, you could be entitled to compensation. Your injury solicitor will help you recover the costs of any out of pocket expenses you have suffered as a result, and will seek an award for your injuries too. To find out more about making sure your claim reaches its full potential, get in touch with us today.

Work accident in Fleet
Fleet has a lower than average number of people unemployed, with many local workers employed in jobs relating to administration and technology. Other jobs, such as in the care sector, leisure industry, education and sales all fall pretty much in line with the national averages, with the exception of factory workers which is lower.
It doesn’t matter what job you are in, they all come with their own risks, and you could be injured in a work accident in Fleet. Your boss legally should make sure your workplace is safe for you to do your job, and safe for any visitors to the premises, such as delivery drivers or clients.
If they fail in matters relating to health and safety, depending on how serious the breach of regulations is, they could be prosecuted by the Health and Safety Executive. That will not help to heal your injuries if their negligence has caused you an injury though, and they should compensate you for the way they have affected your life.

There’s no need to look for a local personal injury solicitor in Fleet; not with us by your side.

Slips, trips and falls in Fleet
Slips, trips and fall in Fleet can happen to anyone at any time. They don’t always have serious consequences, but unfortunately sometimes they do. If you find yourself falling over, the natural reaction is to put your arms out to try and stop the fall. This can result in broken wrists or arms, and sometimes the consequence of a simple fall can be even more serious.
Victims have lost limbs, suffered brain damage and received nasty burns because they slipped, tripped or fell in the wrong place at the wrong time. Most of these accidents could have been prevented if someone had taken more care. If you have been injured in this way, and think someone else was to blame, call us or take our 30-second test today. You only have to answer four simple questions to find out if you have a valid claim, and to get an estimate of how much compensation you could be awarded.
