Hart is a local government district in the county of Hampshire, with its administrative centre in Fleet, which is the major town in the Hart district. It is named after the River Hart which flows through it. In the years 2011-13 Fleet was voted the best place to live in Britain, according to the Halifax Quality of Life Study, because of its affluent population and their health, as well as its climate and healthy environment.
The name Fleet seems to have derived from the name of the pond, from where, in Mediaeval times, monks from Winchester got their fresh fish. The Norman French, la flete, means a stream, or place with shallow water, hence Fleet. Fleet Pond is the largest expanse of freshwater in Hampshire, and a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Road traffic compensation in Hart
Have you been injured in a road traffic accident in the Hart area? If you have been, and can prove that you were the victim and not the perpetrator of the accident, you may be able to make a claim for road traffic compensation in Hart. You need to be able to prove that another person, and not yourself was responsible for the accident. In other words, if your accident involved a wild deer, and no other vehicle, you would be unable to file a claim for road traffic compensation in Hart for injuries or damage to your personal property, because there would be no one to make a claim against.
If you decide to file a claim, you will need the police accident report, and your medical records. The police should be called to the scene of any road traffic accident in which someone has been injured, and which involved one or more motorised vehicles. Of course, if people are injured in any type of accident, the ambulance service should be called to the scene.
