Summary/Abstract: Punitive damages are compensations that raise a lot of controversy and debate among jurists, jurists and judges because they are exceptional and extraordinary, as it is compensation cannot be predicted by the parties to the conflict, especially the party to be judged by the compensation. Punishment and deterrence are the two most prominent jobs for punitive damages, although there are other functions for such compensation. Punitive damages are features by a set of characteristics because of their exceptional nature and because they are punitive damages, the most obvious advantage is that they are quasi-criminal. This paper is an attempt to identify accurately the functions and features of punitive damages.
