3.9-16  Reasonable Time to Remedy after Notice

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.
