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.
