Yes, there are circumstances in a Florida auto accident case where you could be awarded punitive damages, this depends on the conduct of the defendant. If the defendant’s conduct is wanton, reckless or intentional and causes you injuries, then you could be eligible for punitive damages. An example of this would be someone that is driving drunk with a blood alcohol level in the State of Florida .08 or higher. If you are awarded punitive damages, these damages are in excess of the compensatory damages. And the compensatory damages are that, that pays you for your lost wages and your past and future medical expenses.
