What is the Americans with Disabilities Act?


The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a broad law that prohibits discrimination against any person with a disability in the United States. The ADA is divided into five titles (or sections) that relate to different areas of public life, and is most popularly associated with lawsuits asserting discrimination against disabled persons in the workplace or due to issues concerning physical access to commercial facilities.

Recently, several Carmel local hotels have been sued by plaintiffs seeking to extend these ADA protections to their access to commercial websites. The majority of these new lawsuits relate to websites being allegedly accessible to people with vision impairment, blindness or even hearing difficulties. If you are a local business that has questions regarding these requirements or has been sued for alleged ADA issues, please contact Sergio Parra at JRG Attorneys at Law,
