Can someone in the know advise me please..


My partner had an industrial accident at work going back in 2010 for which he applied for IIDB. He sustained an incarcerated inguinal hernia for which he had to have emergency mesh repair surgery and he then developed post surgery chronic left groin pain and tenderness in the pubic tubercle(osteitis pubis.)


The benefits centre wrote back and agreed that the accident was an industrial accident. They awarded him a loss of faculty and was assessed as 2% disabled for life. However,he was not awarded any benefit because his assessment was less than 14%.


My question is can he apply for IIDB again as his circumstances have changed? His groin pain has got progressively worse over the months and is now undergoing pain management at a hospital clinic.


The consultant anaesthetist at the clinic has just recently given him an ilio inguinal nerve block injection which only gives him temporary pain relief and has a follow up appointment in January.


The groin pain restricts his daily mobility in terms of his personal care,walking,preparing meals etc. He needs help and assistance with these tasks.


Does he need to make a fresh claim or does he need to fill out the 'change of circumstance' form?


Many thanks for any advice.

Yes you can, simply ring them up and ask them to look at your case again.


They'll arrange it all and a date sent for your new medical !!!


Good Luck trying to get more from them though !
