Except as otherwise provided in subsection 2:
In all cases in which any member of the militia of the State is wounded, injured, disabled or killed while in the line of duty in the service of the State, the member or the dependents of the member are entitled to receive compensation from the State of Nevada, in accordance with the provisions of chapters 616A to 616D, inclusive, or chapter 617 of NRS. If that wound, injury or disability is aggravated or recurs while the member is in the line of duty in the service of the State, the member or the members dependents are also entitled to receive such compensation.
In all cases, the member who has a disability or is deceased shall be deemed to be an employee of the State of Nevada. The compensation to be awarded to the member or to the dependents of the member must be determined upon the basis of the members average income from all sources during the year immediately preceding the date of his or her injury or death or the commencement of his or her disability, but the compensation must not exceed the maximum prescribed in chapters 616A to 616D, inclusive, or chapter 617 of NRS.
The provisions of this section do not apply to a member of the militia of the State or any dependents of the member who is receiving or is entitled to receive compensation or benefits for an injury, wound, illness, disability or death described in this section pursuant to any law or regulation of the Federal Government, if:
The federal compensation or benefits arise from military duties performed pursuant to Title 10 or Title 32 of the United States Code; and
The wound, injury, illness or disability is not an aggravation or recurrence of a wound, injury, illness or disability that arose from previous duties performed pursuant to Title 10 or Title 32 of the United States Code.
