ADA-compliant parking lots are a vital component of your business. Without it, you risk losing not only potential customers but become exposed and liable to lawsuits. We take pride in ensuring that your exterior ADA improvements are in full compliance with all federal laws and accessible to all.
More than 50 million Americans have disabilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a Federal civil rights law designed to make activities that most Americans take for granted accessible to physically challenged people. By making commercial ADA improvements, businesses can enable individuals with disabilities to enjoy such everyday activities as having a meal at a neighborhood restaurant, shopping at a local boutique, or going to see a movie with friends.
California – one of the most ADA compliant states in the nation – is also the most ADA litigious. Under California law, any physically challenged person who encounters a building condition that does not meet the accessibility requirements of the ADA or the California Building Code (CBC) is entitled to file a lawsuit and receive a minimum of $4,000 in statutory damages plus attorney’s fees. It is estimated that over 20,000 ADA lawsuits have been filed in California courts since the enactment of the ADA in 1992, and conservative estimates indicate that this litigation costs California businesses over $20 million each year. The best way to avoid such litigation is to ensure your properties are compliant, and luckily we can help.
