If you are injured in an accident at work you may be entitled to receive Industrial Injuries Disablement Benefit. This is for people who have become disabled because of an accident at work or a disease caused by their job. This is a no-fault, non-means tested, tax free and non-contributory benefit.
The scheme is operated by the Department for Work & Pensions and you can apply through your local Jobcentre Plus office.
