Del. R. Evid. 409

As amended through May 31, 2024
Rule 409 - Offers to Pay Medical and Similar Expenses

Evidence of furnishing, promising to pay, or offering to pay medical, hospital, or similar expenses resulting from an injury is not admissible to prove liability for the injury.

Del. R. Evid. 409

Amended November 28, 2017, effective 1/1/2018.


This rule tracks F.R.E. 409.

Section 4317 of Title 10, relating to admissibility of evidence of accommodation payments for personal injury, is not affected by the adoption of this rule.

D.R.E. 409 was amended in 2017 in response to the 2011 restyling of the Federal Rules of Evidence. The amendment is intended to be stylistic only. There is no intent to change any result in ruling on evidence admissibility.
