Overview

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is intended to “prohibit[] discrimination and guarantee[] that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else to participate in the mainstream of American life -- to enjoy employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in State and local government programs and services.”

Title III of the ADA requires public accommodation businesses (restaurants, movie theaters, professional offices, hotels, etc.) to provide accommodations to people with disabilities so they can have the same level of access to goods and services as everyone else, including business websites and mobile apps.

ADA website compliance lawsuits continue to be filed against businesses large and small at alarming rates.  It is reasonable to question what, if anything, can be done to stop the carnage on American business.  While the legal landscape for businesses defending ADA website compliance lawsuits does not look pretty, there are defense strategies and risk mitigation protocols that businesses and organizations can utilize to continue to survive and thrive.
