Rule 409: Payment of Medical and Similar Expenses.

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

Advisory Commission Comments.

The rule and the Tennessee case law are the same. Meegal v. Memphis Street Railway Co., 33 Tenn. App. 247, 238 S.W.2d 519 (1950). The rule applies to civil, not criminal, trials.
