If the liable party was grossly negligent or behaved with intentional misconduct, plaintiffs may also be able to recover punitive damages. Unlike compensatory damages, which are intended to make the claimant “whole” again, punitive awards are designed to prevent the defendant and other parties from committing similar acts in the future.
In Florida, most personal injury cases have a cap on punitive damages. Typically, accident victims may recover up to $500,000 or three times their total compensatory reward in punitive damages; however, there are exceptions to these limits. The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston will thoroughly investigate your case to determine if punitive damages would be worth pursuing.Discuss Your Claim with a Personal Injury Lawyer in Boca Raton Today!
