Q
In my Virginia car accident trial, can I tell the jury that the insurance company forthe driver that hit me offered me money to show that the driver of the other car was at fault?

A

No. An offer to compromise that was made before the jury trial is not admissible at the actual jury trial of your Virginia car accident. The reason for this is that if it were allowed as an admission, no company would ever engage in settlement discussions. The only way around this is if during negotiations there was an expressed admission of liability, then that admission is admissible.
