What happens if someone falls on your business property and they hurt themselves? Are you as a business owner or commercial property owner liable? It’s very important that you understand that the answer is likely yes if you’re found negligent of properly maintaining your property. Regulations are put into place for a reason. People’s safety should be a concern for a number of reasons, some more obvious than others. Things that are put off or ignored could end up catching up to you later on down the road if something goes awry at a business or office. Leveling concrete slabs on commercial properties is often one of those things!
The Best Business Owners Stay On Top Of Every Aspect
You might think that paying for a rented out or leased space is the only action you need to take in terms of avoiding liability. That may be ,but if your building is condemned because your building manager or property owner isn’t as astute at staying up to code as you thought, you could be losing a huge amount of money and business. There are plenty of things you can do as a business owner to make sure your business and customers are properly protected.
- Do routine checks of your building and surrounding areas.
- Maintain a good relationship with your property owner.
- Keep up good and frequent communication with your property owner.
Feeling Safe In A Place Is Important To Better Business
First and foremost, if your commercial property isn’t safe for clients or customers to visit, how long do you really expect your business to be operating. If a customer or client feels unsafe or even threatened by certain aspects of your business, building or surrounding areas, do you truly believe they’ll be returning for another visit. Let’s put it this way. If you and your family showed up to a business and there were exposed wires sticking out of the side of the wall or there was a heavy leak with a suspicious looking liquid falling from the ceiling, would you feel safe continuing to do business with that particular company?
Staying Up To Code May Mean More Stringent Policies Than You Think
Legal action against the property owner is almost a certainty if someone trips and falls due to inaction or negligence. You may be surprised as to what is considered dangerous and potentially constitutes negligence. The ADA constitutes any immediate vertical change in height of a walkway or path of anything over ¼ in as a tripping hazard. That means there are likely tripping hazards around your property that you aren’t even aware of. Be vigilant and make sure you, as the property owner or building manager, are doing routine searches of anything that could potentially be causing damages.
Keep Your Property Value High And Appearance Pristine
Safety aside, another important reason to keep your commercial property maintained in every way possible is making sure your property isn’t losing value. If you have eyesores on the property it’s likely that the value of that property will be diminished. Those small things add up and before you know if your pristine property could be raking in a lot less rent money than possible. Make sure you’re getting all the value out of your land and commercial properties. Keep routine maintenance a priority and get those concrete surfaces lifted and leveled if need be.
