Procedure on death of claimant

34.—(1) In the event of the death of a claimant or of a person who, if he had survived, could have been a claimant, a claim for compensation under these Regulations may be continued or made, as the case may be, by his personal representatives.

(2) Where any such claim is continued or made as aforesaid by personal representatives, the personal representatives shall, as respects any steps to be taken or thing to be done by them in order to continue or make the claim, be deemed for the purposes of these Regulations to be the person entitled to claim, but, save as aforesaid, the person in whose right they continue or make the claim shall be deemed for the purposes of these Regulations to be that person, and the relevant provisions of these Regulations shall be construed accordingly.

(3) The compensating authority may in any case where a person who, if he had survived could have been a claimant, has died, extend the period within which a claim under Regulation 7 or 12 is to be made by his personal representatives.
