Idaho’s Non-Economic Damages Cap

Every July 1, the non-economic damages cap is adjusted to account for inflation and the average annual wage. As expected, this year we saw the largest increase in the past 19 years (7.84%) from $399,430.74 (2021) to $430,740.03. Please click here to view a chart with historical non-economic cap information. Idaho Statute Section 6-1603 is silent on the date/event that attaches to the cap (time of injury, time of complaint, time of verdict).
