Federal judges rule that non-compliant websites violate Americans with Disabilities Act.
ADA laws are interpreted to apply to all web-based and electronic content, requiring that websites be easily accessible for those who are blind or visually impaired. Businesses whose websites fail to comply with this standard are vulnerable to legal claims that can cost a small fortune in court costs and legal settlements.
People are filing costly lawsuits across the country and more are expected
Business owners threatened with lawsuits are obligated to pay for an attorney, pay to fix their website and likely pay additional fees to settle the case out of court. It is stressful, expensive and time consuming. Businesses Large and small are vulnerable.
There are other advantages to a compliant website besides avoiding a lawsuit.
