I'm not sure what I said to elicit such harsh judgement

What you perceived as harshness, I perceived as a dose of reality.

At the risk of you perceiving "harshness" again I'll move on.

My questions are primarily about negotiation

How you negotiate is you tell the manufacturer how much money you want and you present documentation as to how you arrived at that amount. Then they make you a counter offer. If you don't like the counter offer you file suit. For a thousand or two you can use small claims court without a lawyer.

Knowing "ranges" and "precedents" isn't going to help you. You either have X dollars in monetary damages, and can prove it, or you don't. Neither the manufacturer nor a judge is going to care what somebody else got or what some other court awarded.

The manufacturer and the judge already know that you are entitled to reimbursement for "ascertainable" losses. They've been through this thousands of times.

But that doesn't mean I should be uninformed about what the courts have accepted or rejected in the past, does it? In order to reasonably evaluate the fairness (in the eyes of the court, not academically) of an offer, by either side, I was simply asking for direction about where to look for precedent.

Fair is where you go on rides and eat cotton candy. Fair has nothing to do with any of this. Again, if you have X dollars in losses you submit documentation.

All I can say is that, if any professional spoke to me that way, it'd be the last time we spoke.

What will you say when a judge tells you something you don't want to hear? Please judgie, don't be harsh with me.
