Are punitive damages available in a Kentucky prescription drug case?

In Kentucky, punitive damages are available against prescription drug manufacturers if they have acted with fraud, oppression, or malice. Many pharmaceutical companies are aware of deadly or dangerous side effects of a drug for several years before they notify consumers or update their warning labels with this information. This is just one of the many situations that would warrant a punitive damages award against a prescription drug manufacturer.
