Are punitive damages available in my accident case?

Punitive damages are rarely awarded. The instances in which they are awarded is when a person acts with the reckless disregard for human life or safety. In those instances, if that reckless disregard for human life and safety causes an accident you may then sue the person for punitive damages, which act as punishment damages which are designed to deter future behavior by others.
