The defect was repaired after the incident, is this an admission of liability?

Question:
The defect was repaired after the incident, is this an admission of liability?
Answer:

No. The repair of any defect is not an admission of liability. We have a statutory duty to repair or make safe any defect that is hazardous within a reasonable period of time, once it has become known.

It may be however that the defect was not reported until after your incident. The fact that a defect has been repaired does not imply that it was a hazard. Most repairs are carried out purely as routine maintenance.
