Join us as national law firm, Wilson Elser, leads a legal panel created by AAAtraq®, leaders in compliance identification and management services, to raise web compliance under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
"When the ADA was enacted in 1990, the focus was on physical space and buildings and the rights and needs of disabled people," said Adam Bialek, co-chair of Wilson Elser’s Intellectual Property & Technology practice. "In recent years, the focus has shifted to the web, where disabled people encounter a new set of barriers to accessing what they need to participate in today’s economy."
Despite best efforts, over 94% of websites fail to meet website accessibility, often resulting in unintentional discrimination against those with disabilities and exposing your website to threats of legal aggression.
Additionally, lacking an understanding of ADA standards and regulations can be devastating, most often requiring an attorney who is specialized in accessibility suits. Typical litigation time can be nine to fourteen months and the costs, compensation and damage to your brand considerable.
