(a) while being transported in the course of the worker’s employment by any mode of transportation in respect of which public liability insurance is required to be carried, or
(b) as a result of an accident involving the use of a motor vehicle by the worker or any other person.
11(2)Any party to an action may apply to the Commission for adjudication and determination of the plaintiff’s right to compensation under this Part, or as to whether the action is one which the right to bring is taken away by this Part and that adjudication and determination is final.
