Determining Punitive Damages in Wrongful Death Lawsuits

Punitive damages are granted when the court decides that the defendant's behavior was particularly malicious or intentional. Punitive damages are awarded in addition to compensatory damages and are intended to punish the defendant and deter others from engaging in similar conduct. Punitive damages in wrongful death lawsuits are rare and depend on the specifics of the particular case.
