ADA WEBSITE COMPLIANCE SERVICE

It may surprise you that ADA compliance extends beyond restrooms and buildings. ADA compliance applies to your website as well!

George H.W. Bush signed Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into law in 1990.

Websites and mobile apps were added to the scope of Title III interpretation by Congress.

The “surf-by” lawsuit is an unintended result of Title III’s extension to mobile apps and websites.

What would the cost of an ADA lawsuit be?

Using California as an example, let us look at one state. The “settlement value” of ADA claims has increased for California businesses. It is up to $20,000 per case instead of the norm elsewhere of $3,500 to $7,500.

Our fee is a small portion of what you must pay to defend your company from one of these “surf-by” lawsuits.

Description

It may surprise you that ADA compliance extends beyond restrooms and buildings. ADA compliance applies to your website as well!

George H.W. Bush signed Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) into law in 1990.

Websites and mobile apps were added to the scope of Title III interpretation by Congress. The products and services made available through these digital tools are accessible to people who rely on assistive technology, such as screen readers or text magnification software, to connect to the internet.

The “surf-by” lawsuit is an unintended result of Title III’s extension to mobile apps and websites.

Plaintiffs who serve as “testers”—visiting a company’s website or utilizing a mobile app to find possible accessibility violations—frequently file these claims.

It is not unusual to see lawsuits with similar facts filed against multiple businesses on behalf of the same plaintiff, often by the same law firm, since a single claimant can test various websites and apps with little effort. It is not uncommon to see hundreds of these lawsuits filed for a single plaintiff.
