What is Punitive Damage? Virginia Accident Injury Attorney James Parrish

Hear from Principal Attorney James Parrish of Parrish Law Firm, PLLC discusses the nature of punitive damage in cases that may occur in Fairfax, Fauquier, Prince William counties Virginia.


Hello everyone. I'm Jim Parrish of Parrish Law Firm, PLLC in Northern Virginia. I handle drunk driving injury cases, that is, cases in which people are injured by drunk drivers. In such cases there are special types of damages that can be available to the injured person, outside of those damages that are available for their injuries. This special type of damage is known as a punitive damage, or punishment damage. It's a very tricky and complex area of the law. And in Virginia it's very very difficult to recover this type of punitive damage. If you'd like further information about this type of damage, or if you've been involved in a an accident caused by a drunk driver, please feel free to contact us or visit us on our website, The address will pop up at the end of the video.
