If I Sign A Contract Without Reading It, Does That Affect The Enforceability Of The Contract?

A person who has the ability and the opportunity to read a document before signing it is contractually bound by the terms of the document even if the person signed it without reading it.

Even if a person is unable to read or understand the terms of the contract, that person is still bound by the terms of the contract since he should have tried to obtain an explanation.

An exception to this rule is if the other party knows, or has reason to know, that the signer cannot read the contract or has limited ability to understand its terms.
