What are Punitive Damages?

Punitive damages are one of the categories of damages that you may be entitled to collect depending on the facts of your case. Generally speaking, punitive damages are compensation awarded to an injured party that is intended to punish the other person for, particularly egregious or outrageous behavior.

Why Everyone Should have Underinsured Motorist Coverage

Underinsured motorist coverage protects you if you're in a car wreck and the at-fault driver does not have enough insurance coverage to pay for your damages. For example, let’s say that you got in a car wreck, but it wasn’t your fault. In most cases, you would file your claim with the at-fault driver’s car insurance company, get your car repaired, and receive compensation for your lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering, etc. There’s no out of pocket expenses for you.
