(b) A suit may not be filed until the claim shall have been finally denied by the Board. Failure of the Board to make final disposition of the claim within six (6) months
after it has been presented shall, at the option of the claimant any time thereafter,
be deemed a final denial of the claim for purposes of the Act and of this part.
(c) A suit shall not be filed for a sum greater than the amount of the claim presented
to the Board, except where the increased amount is based upon newly discovered evidence
not reasonably discoverable at the time for presenting the claim to the Board, or
upon allegation and proof of intervening facts, relating to amount of the claim.
