25.3.1 Self Inflicted Injuries and Suicide

Document

Section 14(2) of the SRCA states:

14(2) Compensation is not payable in respect of an injury that is intentionally self-inflicted.

If the medical condition is intentionally self-inflicted, S14(2) bars payment of compensation for an injury (whether resulting in death, incapacity or impairment).

In practice, RCG sees few cases involving self mutilation etc. Most cases which trigger this exclusion are acts of suicide.
