actual expenses
Explanation:
See the first link for definition of "positive expenses" as, for example, incurred medical and nursing expenses of a claimant, in Latin "damnum emergens".

Having been trained in the common law but not Latin, I had to revert to my Black's Law Dictionary to find that "damnum emergens" is "damage arising. Actual damage or loss as contrasted with future loss or expectancy."

In this case, I recommend "actual expenses" instead of "actual damage(s)".

agree  Hans Wang: I would probably add "out-of-pocket" between your two terms to keep out things that are reimbursed: actual out-of-pocket expenses

  -> Ah, now we're even deeper into the law of remedies -- best leave that alone here, or I fear we'll be tossed out by our translator peers. ;-)
