What if I slipped on the floor of a public bathroom that had just been mopped and suffered a concussion? Although an upright caution sign had been placed on the wet floor, it was not visible from where I slipped and fell.
The fact that a sign has been posted does not necessarily mean that you are not entitled to compensation. If the sign was placed in an area that was not reasonable, the posting of the sign may be of little use to provide a defense to the property owner for creating an unreasonable risk. Whether you could have seen the sign or not will depend on the evidence compiled on the case.
