A: You may be able to seek damages from personal injury depending on where your child was injured, and what caused his injuries. Different laws apply depending on whether the trail was public property or private property, and more information is needed to answer this question. Consider contacting experienced legal counsel.

A: I hope your kid recovers quickly. Such signs are often posted on trails and can present a significant obstacle to a claim. However, they are not necessarily absolute as a defense. Based on the wording of the sign and the nature of the incident, an attorney might be able to provide more insight.
