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, there were an estimated 265,000 legal demand letters sent in 2020 (which are often a precursor to a lawsuit).
With this escalation in legal activity, there’s no better time to prioritize web accessibility. We help you understand applicable global laws like the ADA, Section 508, and the AODA, and get you started to reduce your risk of reputation-damaging legal action.
