3.9-16 Reasonable Time to Remedy after
Revised to January 1, 2008
In deciding the issue of notice, the
subsidiary question is whether the defect had existed for such a length of time
that the defendant, in the exercise of due care, should have discovered it in
time to have remedied it prior to the plaintiff's fall. What constitutes a
reasonable time is a question of fact for you to determine based on the
circumstances you find to have existed in this case.
