The Accident Compensation Commission, Fiji has helped the widow of the late Subhash Chand with her application for compensation under the Accident Compensation Act 2017 on the grounds that Chand’s death was due to an employment accident under the schedule to the Accident Compensation Act 2017.
Chand died at the CWM Hospital on the 9th of this month after he succumbed to injuries he sustained when he was allegedly assaulted by three men at the Nausori Bus Stand on 3rd October 2020.
ACCF says whether there is an entitlement to compensation, in this case, will depend on the outcome of ACCF’s investigation into the facts of the case and whether all the criteria are met.
Chand was grateful to the ACCF for reaching out to her and the family to help them during this very difficult time.
There is also no application fee under the Accident Compensation scheme.
