Victims may receive compensation for lost income, both current and future earnings, resulting from their inability to work due to the injury, hospitalization, or rehabilitation.
This compensation accounts for the physical pain, emotional distress, and diminished quality of life experienced by the victim due to the burn injury.
Burn injury victims often require extensive rehabilitation, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, and psychological counseling, all covered under compensation.
Compensation may include funds for ongoing care needs, such as home health care, assisted living facilities, or specialized medical equipment required for long-term recovery.
