Can you be taxed on a settlement that was appointed in court?

I recently won a case against a small company, which in turn granted me a small sum of money. I would like to know if I will be taxed on that appointed money. The money was given due to injuries I received after being tackled by security, during a wrongful accusation of shoplifting sustained at the company, leading me to believe that it should not be touched by anyone other than myself? Is this the case?

    Pain and suffering is tax free. Other things like loss of income are taxable.
