I'm not sure what injuries you incurred from falling. If a doctor can show that you were badly injured as a result of the fall (regardless of what you had going on before), I would say to talk with an attorney. Yes, the signs do work in their favor but crazier cases have been won (my favorite is the woman who tried to balance a cup of hot McD's coffee between her legs while driving, spilled it & got severe blistering burns between her legs -- she sued & won. No, there wasn't a label on the coffee cup back then, but honestly common sense dictates that coffee is hot & balancing anything between your legs while driving is not a good plan).
If the attorney you consult with says the case is a no go, then unfortunately you are probably out of luck. But I think it's at least worth a phone call to someone. And in the meantime stop talking to anyone at McD's. And document absolutely everything.
But realize that if you are going to sue them that they will throw even worse things at you than insulting you for being disabled & unable to comply with their stupid little signs. They will dig up stupid irrelevant facts & will try to pretend like they matter. The judge will know better, but that doesn't mean they won't say things they know will get thrown out just to try to get you upset.
wishing you well,
