There is no average amount of restitution per se, it really depends upon the type, extent, short or long-term effects and how the injury that caused the pain and suffering was incurred. Many states have established laws that place "caps" on personal injury awards, especially those related to medical malpractice.

No. Small claims courts are for what their name implies - for collecting "small claims," usually considered in many (all?) states to be of tangible monetary value less than $5,000. If you were to wish to pursue a claim for intangible damages it would have to filed in civil court, but not on the Small Claims docket.

As long as it meets the requirements for the court. Most claims of this sort are too large to be in a small claims court.

What is the difference between pain and suffering Pain is the physical aspect. The actual feeling. The sensation. Suffering is the effect the pain has on your life . Is there a lingering pain that limits your activities. It is also the mental component associated with pain.

Most likely not. Pain and suffering only comes into place if you are injured.

User Avatar

The "payout" is commensurate to the amount of pain and suffering you actually experienced. Stress is not recoverable.

The better way to put it would be - I was suffering from pain and distress - if that is your complete sentence. Alternatively you could say - The pain and distress I was suffering caused me to lash out.

If you smashed your thumb in the car door, you can help get rid of the bruise and the pain by icing the thumb and taking ibuprofen or acetaminophen.

No. Areas of a settlement such as medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering are not taxed.

From what I know you can't sue for emotional distress in small claims court period. However, you can request pain & suffering along with the medical bills you want paid.

There are no set laws or pricing metrics for pain and suffering in California. A jury or judge looks at all the facts, and sets an amount based on their own individual judgment of a pain and suffering case in California.

You will mainly feel the pain in the thumb when you have broken it. It can sometimes radiate up the forearm though and could even make you vomit.
