9.1.3 Transportation costs incurred by another person

Section 297 of the MRCA allows for compensation to be paid to a person who reasonably incurs costs for the transportation of another person to an appropriate facility for treatment after that other person sustained an injury, contracted a disease, or to a mortuary when that other person has died.

The person that is transported by the other person must either have:

  • liability accepted for the service injury or disease or death; or
  • be a wholly dependent partner or an eligible young person, eligible for treatment under section 284.

This provision is only to enable the costs of transporting a person immediately after a service injury or disease has been sustained or contracted, or where the person has died.  This provision is not to be used for the reimbursement of travel conducted for the purpose of attending normal medical treatment.
