)-- California Access Consultants an ADA accessibility consulting company, in response to the tidal wave of accessibility lawsuits in Los Angeles for non-compliance of the federal law pertaining to the American’s with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) now offers its expertise and services to all business and commercial property owners throughout California.
Many business and commercial property owners are under the false impression that they are compliant because they have a city, county, and/or state license, or they believe they are “grandfathered” due to the age of the building. Regardless of the permits and age of the building all businesses and commercial properties open to the public are subject to some level of compliance. Tenants and landlords are both jointly and severely responsible for being compliant. Violations are easy to find.
But Businesses must beware. The courts are not playing around; not knowing or doing nothing is simply not going to work. Knowing and Planning is Financial Protection. Having a Transition Plan can not only protect your business or property, but will assist you in planning out your future business needs and keeps your money in your property.
Under the ADA, business and commercial properties open to the public are required to allow people with disabilities access to all portions of the business which are open to the general public. Access must include, among other things, properly designated parking, with no steps or curbs blocking an entrance. Bathrooms and aisles must be able to accommodate customers with wheelchairs and counters with a specific height. The law allows a disabled person who has been denied access to any business or commercial property because of violations, to file a lawsuit without complaining to anyone prior to filing that lawsuit.
