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

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.
