"Small claims" generally refer to the jurisdictional limits of courts. For instance, with some exceptions, the jurisdicational limits for General Sessions Courts in Tennessee is $25,000. This means, that the court can award up to $25,000 in damages. If you are wanting damages of more than $25,000 then you have to file suit in either Circuit or Chancery Court.
