When a court determines that a company or person is liable for the injuries, they may be forced to pay compensatory damages, which are awarded to the injured party to help restore them financially to the level they had attained before being injured. Punitive damages are also sometimes awarded by the courts, and these are intended to punish the responsible party in the hope that they will avoid injuring others in the future.
