Injuries From Improper Signage

Legal Assistance from a Sacramento Personal Injury Lawyer

Any dangers that cannot be immediately repaired or permanently exist must be indicated with clear signage that warns those passing of any risks present. If this important and legally-required safety step is not followed, property owners could be held liable for any injuries that may occur as a result of these dangers. This can be true for workplaces, retail establishments, and even public properties.

If you have been injured by a property feature that was not clearly indicated by proper signage, you may be eligible for compensation for your injuries as a result of premises liability laws. A knowledgeable Sacramento personal injury attorney from Smolich & Smolich may be able to fight on your behalf to help you recover financial benefits you deserve. Attorney James Smolich is one of a select few legal professionals to be named a Certified Specialist in Workers’ Compensation law from the State Bar of California. Our reputable firm has served clients around Northern California for more than 40 years.

Many Signs for Many Dangers

Signage for hazards can come in almost as many forms as the hazards themselves. The United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration has gone to great lengths to standardize warning signage required around commonly-occurring hazards. In fact, you probably see some signs like theses every day because of how commonplace they have become.

  • Workplace signage must be posted in the presence of dangers, including:
  • Chemical hazards
  • Fire hazards
  • Electrical hazards
  • Poison hazards
  • Hot surfaces
  • Noise hazards

Additionally, signs must also be present to indicate where emergency features are, such as fire extinguishers, chemical showers, and facility exists. Each sign must be a certain size, and many must also be a particular color, depending on its purpose and information.
