Pre-Judgment Interest

Generally, pre­judgment interest is not awarded in tort cases, unless the damages are reasonably ascertainable. Davis v. Professional Business Services, 109 Idaho 810, 712 P.2d 511 (1985). Pre­judgment interest is allowed where the amount claimed is liquidated, or may be ascertained by mathematical computation. McGill v. Lester, 108 Idaho 561, 700 P.2d 964 (Ct. App. 1985). As a result, in the normal case pre­judgment interest will likely not be awarded in personal injury actions.
