A burn victim is entitled to compensation for current and future medical expenses, lost wages, disfigurement, emotional suffering, mental impairment, and physical disability. The concept of physical impairment has to evolve amongst the burn specialist so that the award of disability can become more meaningful. It must be realized that disability is not purely a medical condition.
