Punitive Damages

Author: Webmaster / August 12, 2016 / Categories:

A type of damages that can be awarded to victims of personal injury claims (such as automobile accident claims or medical malpractice claims). These damages are awarded in such a way that they exceed total direct, compensatory damages in order to act as a punishment for the negligent party. In other words, the plaintiff is awarded a monetary amount over what their direct medical bills and other costs total, in order to punish the defendant and deter them from acting in a similar negligent manner in the future.
