Insuranceopedia explains Hedonic Damages

In an injury suit, the court can determine how much money to award the plaintiff for certain matters, like hospital bills or lost income. These are quantifiable and easy to calculate. Hedonic damages, on the other hand, are difficult to quantify and it is hard to determine what constitutes adequate monetary compensation. For this reason, some courts do not consider them when awarding damages.
