With the invaluable assistance of CaseMetrix, along with the data basis of another reporting service, I have reviewed the outcome of every reported motor vehicle accident case since the year 2000 that included a claim for punitive damages and went to verdict. Please click on the links below to access spreadsheets which contain the results of this research. The spreadsheets show the county in which each case was tried, the type defendant(s), the amount of specials, the factors that supported the punitive damages claims, how much was awarded in compensatory damages and what, if anything, was awarded in punitive damages. The information provides relevant and practical information to assist you in evaluating the prosecution and defense of punitive damages claims.
