LEGAL NOTICE: What if someone warned an employee of a store about a spill prior to a slip and fall happening? Is that fact important in proving a slip and fall case caused by the spill?

Absolutely, yes.

The fact that an employee of the property owner (or possessor) was given notice of a dangerous condition is very helpful in establishing that the owner knew of the condition and was negligent in failing to remedy it.  The employee had a duty to clean up the spill to prevent any injuries from happening and failed to do this - thus, legal liability can be argued in that case for the benefit of the injured person.
