Under Massachusetts law, punitive damages are not calculated by the extent of your bodily injuries, as are the other types of damages. Instead, punitive damages are awarded on top of your personal injury damages to punish the wrongdoer rather than compensate you. You usually cannot recover punitive damages unless you also recover compensatory damages, namely money damages designed to compensate you for your actual damages and losses. Punitive damages are only awarded in cases where a defendant’s wrongdoing is particularly reprehensible.

Punitive damages are not always recoverable in Massachusetts personal injury actions. For example, if you are suing your employer for discrimination, you cannot recover punitive damages under Massachusetts law unless your employer’s behavior was truly outrageous (see the emotional distress section of the website to learn what behavior qualifies as being sufficiently outrageous) because Massachusetts worker's compensation laws generally prevent you from suing your employer.

The rest of the kinds of Massachusetts damages, other than punitive damages, are compensatory in nature, meaning that they are only meant to compensate you for your personal injuries.
