Over 56 million Americans have a disability covered by the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) of 1990. This Act prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in all areas of public life. These disabilities include blindness, deafness, handicap motor skills and more.
Businesses are becoming more reliant on their websites to reach audiences and generate commerce. Consequently, these websites (and other online properties) are receiving more scrutiny by ADA attorneys. Over the last four years, there has been an explosion of lawsuits and claims by disabled people asserting that businesses’ websites were not accessible to them because they were not up to code with Title III of the ADA. Most recently, Dominos lost a lawsuit filed by a blind man unable to order from the website or mobile app using a screen reader. Dominos lost the case in Supreme Court.
