I think this tests prepositional //ism. ‘For injury to’ people in the non-underlined part should be matched by a corresponding ‘for damage to’ in the underlined portion. Note that only A keeps such a prepositional //ism perfectly; hence that is the correct choice. Because all other choices foul this basic tenet, I would confidently dump them and go to the next.

this is also correct
a similar construction for the question would be "permits state governments to get compensation for damage to their natural resources"
but this is not part of any of the choices,so have to go with A :)
