Personal injury law involves civil claims in which an individual is injured through the negligence, recklessness or intentional misconduct of another person, a company, or property owner. A personal injury lawsuit may arise from physical or emotional injuries. Personal injury law compensates individuals injured as a result of another's negligence or intentional misconduct.Personal injury laws vary from state to state. If you believe you have a personal injury claim, you should contact a personal injury lawyer in Idaho to evaluate your claim.

Idaho follows a system using the modified comparative negligence – 50% rule.  In states following a modified comparative fault – 50% rule, an injured party can only recover if it is determined that his or her fault in causing the injury is 49% or less, with the resulting damage award reduced by the injured party’s amount of fault.  If the injured party’s fault level reaches 50%, he or she cannot recover any damages resulting from the accident.  For example, if Debbie sued Dave for damages she suffered in a car accident involving their vehicles, and Debbie was 50% at fault, Debbie would not recover anything from Dave.  If, however, Debbie was 40% at fault, she could recover damages, but the damage award would be reduced by her portion of the fault in causing the injury.  Therefore, a finding that Debbie suffered $10,000 in damages would result in Debbie receiving an award reduced by 40%, or a final award of $6,000.

A statute of limitations is a type of law that restricts the period of time that a person may initiate legal proceedings.  Time limits can vary depending on the type of case and the state where the particular cause of action occurred. To learn more about statutes of limitations, read our Statute of Limitations page. To see a state by state comparison chart for the personal injury statute of limitations for each state, read our Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Actions page.

Idaho Statutes of Limitations

In Idaho, the courts follow a modified joint and several liability approach in entering judgment against multiple defendants.  Defendants are generally held to be severally liable and subject to damages in proportion to his or her fault.  Joint and several liability was also abolished in cases of pollution or hazardous waste and medical/pharmaceutical product liability.  Aside from those cases, in situations where the defendants were acting in concert with each other in order to intentionally or recklessly harm another, those defendants will be subject to joint and several liability.
