How does the presence of a warning sign affect my slip and fall accident injury claim?

Sometimes I’m asked, “How does a warning sign affect my ability to be able to establish a premises liability claim against the owner of that particular property?” Those kinds of warnings, under Florida law, can be a defense, but many times what we have seen is that those warnings are not prominently placed in an area where a person would have seen them before they encountered a dangerous condition.

What those warnings do mean and how they can be helpful to a potential client is they can show that the person in control of that property, or the landowner, or the business owner, was aware that there was a condition there that could pose a safety risk to a business invitee of theirs or someone that would come on their land or premises. The question is always whether or not that warning was sufficient. Was it a visible warning? Was it a warning that a reasonable person would have seen under the circumstances? Those are all issues that we will take up.

If you’ve been injured in a premises liability claim and you’re aware that there was something there that caused you to sustain this injury— maybe a slippery substance or some other kind of condition, such as uneven pavement — document that condition. Pull out your cell phone and take a picture of it. Also, if there are any warnings there that you might or might not have seen, take a photograph of those as well so that we can analyze those conditions and give you the best-considered advice as to what your best remedies and rights are in terms of pursuing that particular claim.
