Maybe you slipped and fell on a wet floor while you were visiting an Oklahoma business or someone’s private property. When you tell someone about it later, they’ll probably ask you one question: “Was there a ‘wet floor’ sign?”
That’s because most people have the idea that a “wet floor” sign is like a magic shield for liability. They think all the owner has to do is put out a yellow plastic sign and their work is done, no matter how slippery or dangerous the floor is.
In reality, things aren’t that simple. If you’ve suffered an injury in a slip-and-fall accident (which is a type of premises liability case) and the owner had a wet floor sign on display, you may have a case and you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries.
In this article, we’ll talk about how wet floor signs and similar signage affect slip-and-fall cases and whether you can still have a valid case if there was a sign present.
