Q: Can my Mom sue the city of San Francisco for injury caused by a haphazardly placed sign post by the city?

More information is needed. When did this happen? This is important to determine the statute of limitations. Assuming your mother wants to sue the City, County or some other government entity, she will need to file a tort claim with the responsible government agency in a timely manner.
