At a hearing in damages, a court can award damages for medical expenses and pain and suffering. In February 2009, the plaintiff, Jovanna Coardes and a 3 year old child allegedly were walking on a sidewalk when a motor vehicle collided with Coardes on the sidewalk. Coardes went to the emergency room and complained about back, hip, leg and knee pain.  X-rays did not disclose any fractures, and doctors prescribed pain medicine and crutches.  The plaintiff sued the defendant.  At a hearing in damages, the court awarded economic damages of $1,657 and non-economic damages, for pain and suffering, of $12,000.
