QUESTION
How will the person who caused my injury be punished?
ANSWER

Defendants in civil actions, such as Personal Injury, are not fined nor do they receive jail terms as punishment in civil court. Those types of punishment are determined in criminal court. Punitive damages may be awarded by juries and courts that are designed to punish defendants who have intentionally harmed or behaved recklessly. Punitive damages are awarded to discourage such defendants from repeating their offenses in the future.
