What are general damages?

The general rule of damages in tort is that the injured party may recover for all detriment caused whether it could have been anticipated or not. (Code of Civ. Proc., § 3333; Hunt Bros. Co. v. San Lorenzo etc. Co. [(1906)] 150 Cal. 51, 56.) The recoverable damages include “special” or “general” damages. (Beeman v. Burling (1990) 216 Cal.App.3d 1586, 1601.)

Special and General Damages

“Special” damages consist of all economic (i.e., out-of-pocket) losses caused by the injury that can be documented by bills, receipts, and other records. (Id. at 1599.)

“General” damages consist of the noneconomic or intangible losses that result from the injury complained of, such as pain and suffering and other forms of loss that are subjective and not directly quantifiable by reference to bills or receipts. (Id.) General damages “may be proved under the ad damnum clause or general allegation of damage.” (Zvolanek v. Bodger Seeds, Ltd. (1935) 5 Cal.App.2d 106, 108; Treadwell v. Whittier (1889) 80 Cal. 574, 579.)

A plaintiff must present evidentiary facts, not conclusions, regarding general damages; the types of evidence supporting an award of general damages include evidence disclosing that plaintiff suffered severe pain following the incident, “presently suffers from pain on a daily basis which creates functional lifestyle limitations, and will have chronic pain for the rest of [his] life.” (Westphal v. Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., 68 Cal.App.4th 1071, 1080 (1998).)

It “has traditionally been left to the trier of fact to assess the degree of harm suffered and to fix a monetary amount as just compensation.” (Walnut Creek Manor v. Fair Employment & Housing Com., 54 Cal.3d 245, 263 (1991).) For example, “the law does not prescribe a definite standard or method to calculate compensation for pain and suffering. The jury is merely required to award an amount that is reasonable in light of the evidence.” (Damele v. Mack Trucks, 219 Cal.App.3d 29, 38 (1990).)
