Current through Register Vol. 54, No. 19, May 11, 2024
Rule 407 - Subsequent Remedial Measures

When measures are taken by a party that would have made an earlier injury or harm less likely to occur, evidence of the subsequent measures is not admissible against that party to prove:

* negligence;

* culpable conduct;

* a defect in a product or its design; or

* a need for a warning or instruction.

But the court may admit this evidence for another purpose such as impeachment or-if disputed-proving ownership, control, or the feasibility of precautionary measures.
