The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination based on one’s disability. The law mandates all areas of public life are to be accessible to individuals with disabilities. All establishments open to the general public must make reasonable accommodations. This law extends to ADA compliance for websites as well.
We believe most businesses try in good faith to accommodate persons with disabilities. However, we believe some of these lawsuits seek only to take advantage of small business owners. Commonly in these types of ADA lawsuits, the plaintiffs are pursuing only financial gain instead of correction of the alleged violations. Our experienced business attorney has aggressively defended clients served with ADA lawsuits.
