7. Every victim resident in Québec and his dependants are entitled to compensation under this title, whether the accident occurs in Québec or outside Québec.

1977, c. 68, s. 7; 1989, c. 15, s. 1.
7. The victim of an accident that occurred outside Québec who is entitled to the compensation provided for in this title may benefit by it while retaining his rights of action with regard to the excess under the law of the place where the accident occurred.
Notwithstanding section 4, the Régie, where it compensates a victim under this section, is subrogated in the victim’s rights and is entitled to recover the compensation and the capital representing the pensions that the Régie is thereby required to pay from any person not resident in Québec who, under the law of the place where the accident occurred, is responsible, and from any person liable for compensation for bodily injury caused in the accident by such non-resident.
The subrogation is effected of right by the decision of the Régie to compensate the victim.
1977, c. 68, s. 7.
