Medical profession slang for monetary damages sought in malpractice cases, especially those without any apparent injury or disability in the patient. It can also be used for damages sought in civil suits where the obvious intent is to get money for some trivial (often imagined) slight to someone's delicate feelings. Examples include suing a city because you don't like the Christmas display, because someone wouldn't bake you a cake because it's against their own beliefs, or not having a transgender bathroom available for your confused child to use. Almost invariably associated with an AmbulanceChaser, who will usually get the bulk of the money.
