Question:

How does a warning sign affect a slip and fall claim?

Answer:

Clients come to us sometimes with slip and fall cases where they’ve slipped on some fluid, typically. They look up after they’ve fallen and they see a warning sign, a wet floor sign. They wonder if they have a case. The answer is yes. Here’s why. Warning Signs in a Slip And Fall Case

The owner, the possessor of the land, whether it’s a grocery store, a big box store, has a duty to maintain a property in reasonably safe condition and to warn people of defects in a property that they may not see. That’s called a duty to warn. If the property owner has done its job, for example, and put up a wet floor sign, you may not have an ability to make a claim on a duty to warn. If that water, fluid, whatever it was, was down on that floor for an unreasonably long period of time, however, and they knew about it, then whether they put up a wet floor sign or not does not prevent you from making a claim. They had a duty to clean it up in a reasonably quick time, and if they didn’t, they are responsible, whether or not they put up a warning sign.
