Website ADA lawsuits rising each year
The number of website accessibility lawsuits is indeed on the rise each year, and it is important for website owners to be aware of the potential risks that come with not ensuring their websites are ADA compliant. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that businesses, including home based online businesses, provide reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities while utilizing the businesses website. To ensure your website is ADA compliant, consider hiring a professional to review your website and advise you on what changes you can make to better serve users with disabilities. Additionally, you can refer to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) for guidance on how to make your website more accessible. Taking the time to make your website ADA compliant can help you avoid costly legal issues in the future.
If you are not sure whether or not your website is in violation of any compliance standards of the WCAG, W3C, or ADA, you are entitled to request a FREE Audit of your business’ website by a reputable compliance organization.
