Waterbury Slip and Fall Jury Charges: Actual Notice of Condition

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Mar 28, 2012 | 0 Comments

A Waterbury slip and fall at a local restaurant can harm you in so many different ways.  We are here to help you so you can concentrate all of your efforts on getting well.  Put our decades of aggressive, experienced representation to work for you.

After your Waterbury slip and fall case is presented to the jury, it will be up to the trial court judge to instruct the jury as to the way they are to deliberate. Therefore, before the jury begins deliberations, the judge will provide the jurors with jury charges so they know how to apply Connecticut law to the facts that have been proven in court. One of a number of issues that have to be decided by the jury is actual notice of the condition that caused your fall so the judge might instruction the jury about the following jury charge:

Actual Notice of Condition.  In order for the plaintiff to recover, the plaintiff must also prove that the defendant had actual notice, that is, actually knew of the unsafe condition long enough before the plaintiff's injury to have taken steps to correct the condition or to take other suitable precautions.  If the condition is one that was created by the defendant (or one of the defendant's employees), then that constitutes actual notice.

The insurance company of the person who caused your Waterbury slip and fall has adjusters, investigators and lawyers working on your case so they can determine how to pay you the least amount of money possible. You need someone working for you. Do not wait until it's too late. Call us today at (888) 244-5480 or visit us online at www.hcwlaw.com to get a copy of our FREE book "The Crash Course on Personal Injury Claim in Connecticut".
