3.4.1 Parameters of a claim
Claims for liability are made under section 319 of the MRCA. Liability may be accepted for:
- service injury
- service disease
- service death
- loss or damage to a member's medical aid
Although claims for compensation are also made under this part of the MRCA, the question of compensation is a separate issue. Although acceptance of liability is a prerequisite for compensation to be paid, it is not an automatic entitlement even where liability is or has been accepted.
Further information about these documentary requirements are detailed in Chapter 2: Claims of the MRCA Manual.
