Step 1: Understand the Process
Your company has been sued for its inaccessible website. You’re probably confused, angry, overwhelmed. You’re not alone. That’s why defendants and their lawyers turn to us – dedicated experts in the field – to navigate this new terrain. Below are a few key points to consider:
- If your company has been sued for website or PDF inaccessibility, users with disabilities cannot use these resources the way non-disabled users can – a violation of federal law (The 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act)
- Almost all website accessibility lawsuits settle. The resulting agreements reached by both sides typically require defendants to hire third-party vendors to remove or repair the sites’ virtual barriers. This work is mandatory, so hiring an experienced and knowledgeable partner is a must.
- Settling your lawsuit does NOT protect you from further legal risk. In fact, recent court rulings have paved the way for an explosion of copycat complaints.
- Even after you’ve begun fixing your site, you are still liable for any remaining barriers. To avoid copycat suits, speed is crucial. Schedule a call today
