Website Accessibility Lawsuits

Mitigating Legal Risk

Why Risk it?

With government oversight and regulations, combined with mounting legal pressure in favor of website accessibility, there’s really only one question, why risk it? Under Title III of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), courts are overwhelmingly interpreting “place of public accommodation” to include the Internet. As such, failure to provide accommodations online is no different than failing to provide access in the physical world. Title II of the ADA, Section 508 & Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Air Carrier Access Act, the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA), the Affordable Healthcare Act, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), among other federal, state, and international laws all have one thing in common. Equal access for all. With no shortage of governance and oversight on these important ADA-related laws and guidelines, if your website isn’t accessible, you are at risk of ADA-related complaints.
