2.1.2 Where the death results from an accepted condition


Where a death results from an 'injury' (including a disease) for which the Commonwealth has already accepted liability, the D9182 is required as it provides details of both the reason for death and dependency aspects of the claim. In this situation no investigation into the nexus with employment is necessary. However, the delegate must be satisfied, on the balance of probabilities that there is a causal connection between the accepted condition and the death. The test is still that death must have arisen out of, or in the course of employment, or in cases of death from disease, be materially contributed by service. As liability for the condition has already been established, to satisfy the connection between service and the death, the delegate need only be satisfied that the death was as a result of the accepted condition.
