Who Can File a Wrongful Death Claim?
Not everyone can file a wrongful death claim in Idaho.
Below are the parties who can file a claim in the state:
- The decedent’s personal representative
- The heirs of the decedent’s estate
- The decedent’s children, spouse, stepchildren, parents, or other blood relatives who were wholly or partly dependent
A wrongful death lawsuit is a civil case and, therefore, liability is expressed through monetary damages.
The Statute of Limitations
Every state has a statute of limitations, which is a timeframe within which one must file a lawsuit. In Idaho, the statute of limitations for filing a wrongful death lawsuit is two years, beginning on the date of the decedent’s passing. However, there are some details that might impact the two-year time limit. To ensure the statute of limitations does not run out on your case, seek legal guidance as soon as possible.
Recoverable Damages in a Wrongful Death Claim
In Idaho, one can collect both economic and non-economic damages in a wrongful death claim.
Below are some of the different types of damages you might be able to recover when filing a wrongful death lawsuit:
- The decedent’s final medical expenses
- Burial and funeral expenses
- The loss of household services the decedent provided
- The loss of financial support provided by the decedent
- The loss of the decedent’s care, comfort, and society
Idaho caps non-economic damages at $250,000 per family member. Unlike many other states, Idaho does not allow damages in wrongful death lawsuits for pain and suffering.
