Default Next of kin to receive compensation even if they earned income from accident victim's business

According to a media report, a Motor Accident Claims Tribunal has ruled that family of an accident victim is entitled for compensation even if they get benefit from the victim's business. The comment was made when it awarded a compensation of almost Rs. 1 Cr. to the family of a fish supplier who died after a truck rammed into his bike.

The insurer had said that as the business continued after the victims death, the family couldn't claim a loss of income and claim compensation. The tribunal said
Firstly, there is no material to prove that business is continued by any of the family members and if it is assumed for the sake of argument that such a business is continued then also applicants are entitled to receive compensation.
