17:28-1.8. Evidence of amounts collectible, paid to injured passenger inadmissible in civil action
Evidence of the amounts collectible or paid to an injured passenger pursuant to section 2 of this act is inadmissible in a civil action against an owner, registrant or operator of a motor bus for recovery of damages for bodily injury by such injured passenger.
The court shall instruct the jury that, in arriving at a verdict as to the amount of the damages for noneconomic loss to be recovered by the injured passenger, the jury shall not speculate as to the amount of the medical expense benefits paid or payable under section 2 to the injured passenger.
Nothing in this section shall be construed to limit the right of recovery, against the tortfeasor, of uncompensated economic loss sustained by the injured passenger.
