20. The benefits under this Act shall not be granted:
(a) if the victim is injured or killed in circumstances giving recourse to the Act respecting industrial accidents and occupational diseases (chapter A-3.001) or an Act other than an Act of the Parliament of Québec, either in his favour or in that of his dependents;
(b) if the victim, through his gross fault, contributed to his injuries or death;
(c) to a claimant who was a party to the offence which caused the death of the victim;
(d) if the victim is injured or killed as the result of a criminal act involving the use or operation of a motor vehicle, with the exception of the case provided for in section 265 of the Criminal Code (Revised Statutes of Canada, 1985, chapter C-46).
If, in the case described in paragraph a, benefits provided by an Act other than an Act of the Parliament of Québec are smaller than those provided by this Act, the victim or a dependent, as the case may be, may claim the difference by virtue of this Act.
