Are punitive damages available in Florida bicycle accident cases?

Punitive damages are available in a bicycle accident case, assuming the person that caused the case was actually drunk or committed some sort of act that was reckless or wanton disregard for the life or human safety. They are available, and basically the amount of damages that would be awarded would be the amount of damages that a jury would feel would be enough to punish the person to assure that they wouldn’t do that action again.
