Idaho’s Non-Economic Damages Cap Increased 6.5% in 2023

Every July 1, the non-economic damages cap is adjusted to account for inflation and the average annual wage. As expected, we saw another large increase, 6.5%, from $430,740.03 in 2022 to $458,728.65 in 2023. Idaho Statute Section 6-1603 is silent on the date/event (time of injury, time of complaint, time of verdict) that attaches to the cap.
