Punitive damages are a powerful tool for achieving justice and accountability in a personal injury case. These damages offer additional compensation for victims who suffered harm due to a defendant’s malicious or wanton actions. They punish wrongdoers for their conduct and deter similar behavior in the future.

In California, awarding punitive damages is subject to strict criteria. If you have suffered severe losses due to another’s gross negligence, our California personal injury lawyers at Berg Injury Lawyers can determine if your case qualifies for punitive damages and help you get the maximum award possible.
