Collecting punitive damages can be very difficult and does not often take place. However, the law does allow accident victims to collect punitive damages in cases where the guilty party acted in a manner that showed a blatant disregard for the lives and safety of others. Most accidents where victims receive punitive damages are drunk driving accidents.
However, even if a situation legally warrants the collecting of punitive damages, they are rarely covered by insurance policies. Nevertheless, with the right legal representation you may be able to collect punitive damages for your accident.
