SH*T Happens! People sue

Be ready when they do! Leading insurance firms suggest that the best safeguard against slip and fall lawsuits is airtight documentation (photos, time-stamps, GPS stamps). Document the hell out of your snow jobs with Plato - an app designed these needs.


Minimize the risk

By following these three practices


1) Do a quality job

Make sure not to overextend yourself. Make sure you have all the right equipment. Apply the appropriate amount of salt. Too little salt and they'll slip on ice. Too much salt and they'll slip on salt


2) Stay on top of your contracts

Hire a good lawyer to create your contract and put the right verbiage in. Make sure the contract has "indemnity clauses" and "hold harmless clauses" to protect you..


3) Document everything

Record check in and check out times. Take photos of your work and geotag them on property maps. You can do this all using Plato. Also, since Plato stores all your information on the cloud, you don't have to worry about those images getting lost if you're called in a courtroom 2 years down the line.

"In the case of subcontractors, our client owns the photos if they are loaded into Plato. If it's 2 years before a lawsuit needs those photos the subcontractor could have deleted the photos or may not even be around anymore to get the photos from the device. There are so many reasons to own those photos in our database and not rely on devices to retrieve those photos when needed."
