What are the economic and non-economic damages a Idaho Falls attorney can try to recover?
- Economic damages – are for your expenses that have an actual dollar value, such as:
- medical and rehabilitative bills
- lost wages and earnings from being unable to work and lost business opportunities
- property damage
- burial costs

- destruction of the parent-child relationship.
What Can Determine the Amount of Compensation You May Recover?
The amount of damages awarded for personal injury can vary greatly, from thousands to millions of dollars, depending on the specific factors of your individual case. Consideration is made for:
- the circumstances of the accident and degree of fault of the negligent parties
- the amount of property damage and the costs you incur
- the severity and permanence of your injuries
- whether you will need continuing care
- whether you can return to work in the future
- the availability of insurance and assets of the defendants
- the individual judge and jury involved
- how well your attorney can negotiate a settlement or litigate your case.
According to Idaho statute Section 6-801, Idaho is a comparative negligence state, not a contributory state. Section 6-801 of the Idaho Statutes states that comparative responsibility will not bar financial recovery in a cause of action to recover damages for someone else’s negligence. Victims involved in claims such as car accidents, therefore, do not need to worry about a small percentage of fault barring them from recovering compensation. Idaho also uses a modified comparative negligence law, however, meaning too much comparative negligence could lead to $0 in recovery.
When you contact us, our Strong Law attorneys can provide an estimate of what your case should be worth. No matter what the situation, we know how to build strong cases that take into account all of your expenses and damages, such as lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering.
How Do You Prove Negligence in a Personal Injury Case?
In order to win a case, your attorney must prove that the other party was negligent, in causing your injuries.
Proving negligence legally means showing the following elements:
- Duty: The defendant owed you a duty of care not to cause harm.
- Breach: The defendant breached this duty by actions or failure to act.
- Cause: The defendant’s breach caused your injuries.
- Damage: You suffered damages as a result.
Everyone has a duty of care to act responsibly to avoid harming others. Examples of breaching duty and causing harm include:
- A drunk driver ran a red light and crashed into your car.
- A surgeon amputated the wrong limb.
- Your car’s airbags were defective and sent metal through your body.
Regardless of the cause, we will strive to find all liable parties and hold them responsible.
