Question about evidence-policy based exclusions and admissions

Postby KirbyKager » Tue Feb 14, 2017 12:00 am

Having some issues and was just wondering if you all could help me clear things up. Please correct me where I am wrong.

There are certain types of situations that are not admissible for policy based reasons -

- Subsequent remedial measures
- Offers to settle
- Statements regarding liability insurance
- Statements about offers to pay medical expenses

My question is about their status when they are tied to an admission.

OFFERS TO SETTLE

An offer to settle is not able to be severed from a statement of admission, and as a result neither aspect is admissible

STATEMENTS REGARDING LIABILITY INSURANCE

A statement regarding liability insurance is not able to be severed from a statement of admission, but both aspects of the entire non-severed statement IS admissible

OFFERS TO PAY MEDICAL EXPENSES

An offer to pay medical expenses IS able to be severed,as a result the statement to pay medical expenses is admissible, even if the admission is not able to be admitted.


Thank you in advance for any help you may have.
