Quoting Schettino v. Roizman Dev., 158 N.J. 476, 482 (1999).
In general, damages are unliquidated "where they are an uncertain quantity, depending on no fixed standard, referred to the wise discretion of a jury, and can never be made certain except by accord or verdict." 25 C.J.S. Damages § 2 (1966). On the other hand, "liquidated damages are those the amount whereof has been ascertained by judgment or by the specific agreement of the parties, or which are susceptible of being made certain by mathematical calculation from known factors."
