Your case has been presented to the jury and they are about to begin deciding or deliberating your case in order to reach a verdict. How are the jurors to take all of the evidence that has been presented to them and then decide how much money you are entitled to receive? The trial judge will give jury charges or instructions to the jurors so they will know how to take Connecticut law and apply it to the facts that have been proven to them. One issue that the jury needs to decide is Notice. The judge might instruct or charge the jury on that issue by stating:

Notice of Specific Defect.  The notice to the defendant must be of the specific defect or unsafe condition that the plaintiff claims caused the injury.  It is not enough that the plaintiff prove the existence of certain conditions that would likely produce such a defect, even if such conditions did in fact produce the defect.  Our law requires that the notice, whether actual or constructive, be of the very defect that resulted in the plaintiff's injury.
