Keeping Summer Safe
Summer is here and the kids are out of school. This means a lot of activity around the home, maybe friends or family over for a day at the pool.
Got that 4th of July party scheduled? The grass is cut, got the pool clean, been to the store for food & drink, and you even got some decorations! Unfortunately the pool deck is cracked and settled. You think, "this looks really bad", but more importantly, it's a liability.
Little Johnny has been out playing with his friends around the neighborhood all day and you find out he's fallen on the uneven sidewalk and broke a bone. Who is responsible for that sidewalk? In some cases the city is and in others it's the homeowner, whose property it's on, who is responsible.
About 20% of Americans have disabilities. Trip hazards challenge all citizens, but especially the old, young, disabled and those with canes, crutches, wheelchairs, and gaits. Today’s litigious culture and abundance of accident attorneys increases the odds of lawsuits, raising liability risk when trip hazards exist whether on public sidewalks and rights-of-way or at your neighbors house.
Sidewalks, driveways, front steps, pool decking, etc. We are surrounded by concrete everywhere and our earth is constantly shifting and eroding. Cities and homeowners, together, can reduce sidewalk risk by reducing trip hazards. Most trip and fall accidents are preventable.
When lifting and leveling concrete with polyurethane foam, trip hazards are completely and cleanly removed from sidewalks, pool decks, driveways, etc virtually eliminating claims that result from trips and falls on uneven concrete. By having Concrete Corrections remove their trip hazards, our clients reduce their legal liability using the most efficient and cost effective method available.
