I need to decide whether I'm going to need a lawyer or just go to small claims for PAIN and SUFFERING LAWSUIT.
Yes, the limit on small claims is $3,500, but there is no such thing as a "pain and suffering lawsuit." Pain and suffering is a category of damages that can be added on to a claim for something else, such as a negligence claim in which a personal injury is suffered.See question
