MILITARY REHABILITATION AND COMPENSATION ACT 2004 - SECT 386

Simplified outline of this Chapter

This Chapter deals with the situation where a person who is entitled to compensation under this Act for an injury, disease, death or loss (the compensable loss ) has, or may have, a right to recover damages apart from this Act for the compensable loss.

Part 2 prohibits actions against the Commonwealth for the compensable loss. However, it allows the person a choice to take action against the Commonwealth to recover limited damages for non-economic loss.

Part 3 deals with payment or recovery of compensation under this Act if damages are recovered from a third party. It also allows the Commission to make or take over claims in certain cases.
