Accessibility & ADA Compliant Web Solutions
Just Like Wheelchair Ramps, Public-Facing Business Websites Should Abide by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Title III
In tally, 10,000+ accessibility lawsuits have occurred in 2018 alone.
Your company could quite possibly have a target on its back, specifically from attorneys and plaintiffs who are testing your website for accessibility issues. If you are not in compliance with Section 508 of the Department of Justice Americans with Disabilities Act Standards for Accessible Design, they may come after you.
In these regards, companies of all sizes are being sued for not having a website that is equally accessible to the visually impaired. Just a few of the well-known companies who have been sued for web accessibility issues include Target Corp., Outback Steakhouse, and Domino's. 1,000's of others, of less size and popularity, have been caught in legal battles specific to their website being inaccessible. Some of these are Wölffer Estate Winery, Brooklyn Brewery, and Bedell Cellars.
There are two options when it comes to addressing and handling known issues with website accessibility. Simply put, either fix the site you currently have with the errors to be compliant, or rebuild a new website that is accessible and error-free, prior to going live.

In actuality, the return on investment can be much higher when your company opens its' online doors to those with visual and auditory disabilities. On the flip-side, preventing this litigation is typically less costly than court and attorney costs associated with defending the issue.
