Yes include these in your damages in small claims and ask that they be included in the judgment.I would send a demand letter with this amount giving them 7 days to resolve or you file small claims.It is possible they pay here otherwise include all of this in your suit in small claims.

The most you can ask for in a small claims case is $12,000.Oct 1, 2015
