8.12.1 The injury (or another injury sustained at the same time)


It should be noted that the meaning of an 'injury' for the purposes of the 1971 Act does not fully correspond with the concepts of 'injury' and 'impairment' under the SRCA. However, for the purposes of the application of Ss40(2), 41(13) and S42(11) it is appropriate to refer to the period between the date of injury (which includes disease and aggravation) and the client's death from any condition or impairment relating to that injury. Where, however, the death is a result of some other cause (e.g. a completely separate compensable injury or an unrelated event), Ss40(2), 41(13) and S42(11) have no application.
