How Does The Court Gauge And Award Punitive Damages?
The courts are reluctant to make such awards unless the evidence is glaring and offends the sensibilities of most people. Also, the courts will not award punitive damages when they believe that the actions of the insurance company are consistent with generally accepted business practices regarding insurance claims. Therefore, an extensive examination of the procedures and practices of the insurance company is necessary to pursue claims for punitive damages.
