Everyone wants to put their best forward; no business or property owner wants their employees, patrons or residents to injure themselves or their property. In addition, with the rising costs of doing business, insurance, etc., you certainly don’t want to be vulnerable to a potential liability lawsuit.
Potholes and Cracks
Your parking lot is not a public domain; therefore, it may very well be your responsibility for the care and upkeep of your driveway and parking lot. Cracks and potholes pose a major risk to pedestrians and vehicles alike, leading to falls, injuries and vehicle damage. A pothole or crack, no matter how large or small, may seem insignificant, but they present a greater risk, especially during the winter season, when they may be camouflaged by ice, snow or pools of water.
6 Tips for Preparing Your Driveway and Parking Lot for the Winter
Of course not everything that happens on your property is your responsibility, however, if it can be proven that you were negligent, you will be found at least partially at fault.
The best defensive measure against liability is a good offensive
Have your parking lot and driveway seal coated regularly as recommended by your contractor; this will be dependent on usage and weather conditions. Keep tabs on any new or existing cracks and potholes. Inspect them routinely and have them filled and repaired. Fresh sealcoating will protect the underlying asphalt and you’ll appreciate how great your parking lot and driveway looks.
