Clients have wondered, what if they slip and fall and there was a warning sign present? How does that affect their case? It can affect the case in many different ways. You have to determine exactly where the warning sign is, where the defect is, and if the client actually had warning about the defect. Some of these signs are put in the most ridiculous places that have nothing whatsoever to do with the defect. It depends on the facts. It depends exactly where the warning sign is, what the defect is, and the relation between the two of them. What you must do, to get the best answer for yourself, is hire yourself an experienced personal injury lawyer who will know exactly what to look for, what to investigate, and what to find. You want someone who has experience with these types of cases and will help you out so you can maximize and get the best amount of money that you can get for the injuries you sustained.
In the 45 years that I’ve been practicing, I’ve had many encounters with warning signs; most of them did not stop us from bringing a case. Most of them were not beneficial to the defendants and did not hurt my clients all that much. Warning signs by themselves don’t mean anything. It’s where the warning sign is, it’s how effective it is, and how it affects the case. Get an experienced attorney to look at it. That’s the way you’ll learn how it will affect your case.
