Digital ADA lawsuits

Since 2017, we’ve seen a steady increase in the number of ADA lawsuits filed against companies for inaccessible online content. Adding to that, the estimated 265,000 legal demand letters served in 2020 (which are often a precursor to a lawsuit).

With this escalation in legal activity, there’s no better time to prioritize digital accessibility. We help you understand applicable global regulations like the ADA, Section 508, or the AODA, and get you started to reduce your risk of reputation-damaging legal action.

ADA compliance and case law

Because the ADA was signed into law in 1990, the internet had not yet gone mainstream. However, Title III prohibits discrimination in “places of public accommodation.” This is where understanding case law trends is key. Does a digital experience equate to a place of public accommodation?

U.S. Courts overwhelmingly believe it does, and so does the Department of Justice.

Failure to make a website, app or product accessible is a violation of the ADA as well as a host of other international and state-level mandates.

Our legal team understands the WCAG technical standards as well as how they relate to ADA case law trending and other global legal regulations.

Experience matters

Our team reflects decades of accessibility legal expertise, including experience from inside the Department of Justice. It’s led by our head of regulatory affairs, Kris Rivenburgh. An attorney and ADA compliance expert, Kris is the author of The ADA Book, and founder of accessible.org.

Making it simple

When it comes to digital compliance and applicable international laws, multiple factors come into play: where your organization is located, your customers, and the size of your business.

We simplify the complexities of compliance, making sure you understand the mandates you need to meet, and working with you to meet them. It’s an unparalleled level of legal support for every rule and regulation.

ADA Demand Letter Playbook

Case closed

If you’ve received an ADA demand letter or formal web accessibility complaint, it’s possible the claim against you should be dismissed. This is where our legal expertise will help inform your response strategy.

We first assess whether the complaint is valid. If so, we help your counsel with a remediation roadmap and legal response strategy. We provide an independent, third-party assurance that an accessibility claim that prompted legal action is, in fact, resolved, with documentation, screenshots, and a letter of partnership validating your ongoing commitment to accessibility.
