Punitive damages are rarely awarded. They are used to punish the defendant for egregious behavior or gross disregard for human life. For example, if you were hit by a drunk driver, you may be able to receive punitive damages. We will discuss your options and tenaciously uphold your right to a settlement.
If you’ve been involved in a car accident, there are several steps you should take to increase your safety and protect your ability to pursue compensation:
Some injuries may not appear for hours, days, or even weeks after the initial trauma. These include whiplash, internal organ damage, traumatic brain injuries, and other soft tissue injuries. That is why it is important to see your doctor as soon as possible after an accident.
