2.2.2 Applying the Appropriate Heads of Liability to a Determination of Liability
Liability for determining claims for injury, disease or death (the condition) will be covered in Chapter Three. In simple terms the Heads of Liability can be divided into two methods for linking the claimed condition with service :
- Causal, which requires the application of the relevant Statement of Principles (SoP), and
- Temporal, which also requires the application of the relevant Statement of Principles (SoP), but only requires that the claimed condition resulted from an occurrence that happened while the person was rendering defence service. The occurrence that caused the condition must be a factor in the SoP for that condition.
