Motor Vehicle Personal Injury Laws in Idaho

Below is a summary of the key points regarding motor vehicle accident liability and civil action laws in Idaho. Every trucking and commercial accident incident and scenario is unique. You should consult an attorney for advice regarding your individual situation.
  • Fault-Based Insurance System: Idaho operates under a traditional fault-based motor vehicle insurance system. If you're injured in an accident that was the other driver's fault, you can file an insurance claim or a lawsuit against the at-fault driver to recover compensation for your injuries and losses. This compensation can include both special (economic) damages, such as medical bills and lost income, and general (noneconomic) damages, like pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
  • Statute of Limitations: For most personal injury claims in Idaho, you have two years from the date you were injured to file a lawsuit in court. There are exceptions and special time limits that apply in certain circumstances, such as when the injured party is a minor or when the responsible party leaves the state.
  • Claims Against the Government: Special time limits apply to personal injury claims against Idaho, its political subdivisions, and their employees. Before you can sue Idaho or its employees in court for your personal injury claim, you must first file your claim with the Idaho Secretary of State within 180 days after the date you were injured.
  • Comparative Negligence Rule: Idaho has a "modified comparative negligence" rule. You can recover some damages for your injuries, as long as you aren't found to be 50% or more to blame for the accident. If you're found to be 50% or more at fault, Idaho law bars you from collecting any damages.
  • Damage Caps: Idaho law puts a $250,000 cap on noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering and emotional distress except in certain cases such as willful or reckless misconduct. This cap is adjusted annually for inflation. As of July 1, 2022, the adjusted cap amount was $430,740.

What Does a Truck Accident Injury Lawyer Do?

If you or a loved one has been involved or injured in a truck or other commercial vehicle accident in Idaho, our attorneys are here to help you:

  • Understand your legal rights and options. The law can be complex, and it can be difficult to know what your rights are after a truck accident. An attorney can help you understand the law and your options, and they can advise you on the best course of action.
  • Negotiate with the insurance company. The insurance company will likely be the first one to contact you after a truck accident. They may offer you a settlement, but it is important to remember that the insurance company is not on your side. They are trying to pay you as little as possible. An attorney can negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf and get you the best possible settlement.
  • File a lawsuit if necessary. If the insurance company is not willing to offer you a fair settlement, you may need to file a lawsuit. An attorney can help you file the lawsuit and represent you in court.
  • Help you get the compensation you deserve. If you are successful in your lawsuit, you may be able to recover damages for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. An attorney can help you get the compensation you deserve so that you can recover from your injuries and move on with your life.

If you have been injured in a truck accident, it is important to speak to an attorney as soon as possible. The sooner you speak to an attorney, the sooner they can start working on your case and getting you the compensation you deserve.
