hidden defects

hidden defects
Those imperfections which cannot be discovered by simple inspection. Bulkley v Honold (US) 19 How 390, 15 L Ed 663. The term is a relative one and what may be apparent in the daytime may become a pitfall in darkness or in dim light, and conditions obvious to one with opportunity to investigate maybe a trap to one precluded by nature of his work from making careful examination. Franklin v Maine Amusement Co. 133 Me 203, 175 A 305.
