We do understand that after a serious injury accident financial security for you and your family is crucial. The injury may mean that you are entitled to receive a range of state benefits and it is not easy to work out what you should apply for. Some will be means-tested and others are not.

Since each serious injury case is different our Serious Injury Solicitors can easily advise clients on which benefits they are eligible for.

Means Tested Benefits

Entitlement to the following means-tested or income-related benefits is affected by most other types of income and the amount of savings you have:

  • Child Tax Credit
  • Council Tax Benefit
  • Housing Benefit

Non-Contributory Benefits

  • Attendance Allowance
  • Carer’s Allowance
  • Child Benefit
  • Disability Living Allowance
  • Guardian’s Allowance

Contributory Benefits

  • Incapacity Benefit

For further information please see our expert guide on Welfare Benefits or visit the DirectGov website.
