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 and Smolich may be able to fight on your behalf to help you recover the 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 these 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.

Contact the knowledgeable workers' compensation attorneys at Smolich and Smolich online for a free initial consultation if you believe your injury could have been prevented by proper warning signage.

  • Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!!

    “Without Smolich & Smolich taking my case I would have never gotten my benefits!!! Rob Smolich took my case himself and was so helpful in every step of the way. I cant say anything negative about Smolich & Smolich. I had a lawyer before him and he was way more personable. His office took all the stress off my back and made me feel at ease during the time period of waiting. Have nothing but good things to say about this company. They are completely professional!!!!”

  • Fantastic and Wonderful

    “Sarah Greer and Sam Eldaly from Smolich & Smolich are a fabulous team to work with. I had to apply for SSDI due to my Parkinsons and they handled it not only a professionals but as if they were sitting across the table from me in person the entire time. They are a dynamite team! I highly recommend them to anyone for a fantastic and timely managed experience. Thank you Smolich & Smolich!”

  • They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!

    “Thank you so much for your help. I was denied twice by social security disability. They are the most diligent and wonderfully. Yes it takes a while to get a hearing. If it wasn't for the great staff and attorneys here, I would have never been approved for disability. It was the best Christmas gift i received. They know what it takes to win. Thank you all so much!”

  • You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process.

    “I sincerely apologize for the delay! I truly thought I had already sent this off to almost 3 months ago! Thank goodness I had someone helping me clean and organize the apartment last week. She found your letter behind my bookcase. I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for your support and dedication throughout my case. You were a true blessing to me. You were so proactive and informative, you really did take away so much of my stress during the whole process. Just the fact that you returned a call so promptly was a very big deal to me. It let me know that I mattered to you, Sarah, and the firm. Thanks to the two of you I am finally settled in my own apartment and my mom was able to finally retire. So again, thank you from the depths of my heart for everything that you personally and your firm have done for me. You were true angels in my tie of need.”
