ADA Requirement And Concrete Ramps.
About ADA Lawsuits
Here is an unfortunate scenario that happens all too often these days. You open the mail and find that you’re being sued by an attorney for ADA violations. Now, if you haven’t figured it out, most times (99.999%) these ADA lawsuits are just a load of garbage, but garbage you actually have to take out. This isn’t to say that some ADA lawsuits are valid because some are. But most of the time in our experience these lawsuits have little to do with a disabled man or women being denied access and more to do with the attorney needing a new Lexus. California is no stranger to frivolous lawsuits and the ADA and its constant changes just open the door to more of them. The first thing that you need to do when you get the letter is get yourself a good attorney that understands how to handle these problems quickly and affordably. The second thing you will probably need is a good concrete contractor. The reason you’ll need a concrete contractor is more likely than not the attorney that filled a lawsuit has done so based on your parking situation. That’s where Bernardo Concrete comes in. Most ADA lawsuits will target property issues whose solutions involve expensive repairs, hoping that the property owner will choose to settle with the attorneys client for a lump sum of five or ten thousand dollars.
How a Good ADA Contractor Helps
Now that you have good legal counsel and that part of the problem is being handled, its time to turn your attention to a good contractor. That is where Bernardo Concrete really shines. We have been dealing with ADA issues long before the frivolous lawsuits began. The ADA code changes almost every year, albeit, typically in very small ways. By example, one of the more recent changes that occurred is the requirement to have the words No Parking painted in the crosshatch that is parallel to the handicap space. It is a small change, but it is the law now to have it there. So, what are the some of the larger costs that can affect you in an ADA lawsuit?Â Well, you have probably guessed by now that its concrete.
