9.13.4 S100 of 1971 Act - Re: Dependants not claiming compensation.

Document

Section 100 of the 1971 Act deals with 'dependants not claiming compensation' and in fact is the direct counterpart of Section 49 of the SRCA which bears the same title.

Section 100 deals with the limitation of damages recovered through a legal action, by persons who have refrained from claiming compensation or who have formally declined compensation under S98A of the 1971 Act. It does so in terms almost identical to those of S49 of the SRCA and delegates should read 9.1 of this Handbook. The explanation of this limitation function applies equally to both Acts.
