During tour she suffered breathless, the Doctors were called in ten minutes to revive her.However she passed away in a span of ten minutes and efforts to revive her failed . She is survived by her Spouse ,9 year old school going daughter . She was never hospitalised for any ailment during her course of employment (apart from maternity delivery) . The employer has sent following Forms to family 1) Group Death claim Form, 2) Form 20 PF 3) Form 10 D Pension Form Are the family members entitled to a compensation claim from the employer (since the untimely demise has happened in course of discharging her duties) , apart from the three above mentioned payouts? The Final post mortem report mentions "death due to asphyxiation" , death certificate and panchanama are received. Is it a medico legal case ?

Answer 1

I am sure this is not medical negligence as there is no fault of doctor. This is a fit case of Employee Compensation Act.
