ADA Compliance: Check Your Websites Now!

In past articles, “Is Your Website Putting Your Business at Risk?” and “Court Holds Business Liable for Website’s Failure to Comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act,” we informed you about a wave of cases being filed under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) because of claimed website accessibility issues. Plaintiffs’ attorneys have continued to file these cases and have had success in several courts. As a result, Michigan companies continue to be attacked. Last month, several of our clients were sued and/or received demand letters.We remain ready to assist you with a demand letter or lawsuit. In the meantime, to avoid being targeted, we strongly recommend that you:
 
  • Engage experienced outside legal counsel to help evaluate your website and your risk. Doing so will help keep your internal communications about the website confidential and protected from disclosure to plaintiff attorneys.
  • Evaluate your website(s) for accessibility.
  • Consider potential website changes.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding ADA website compliance, contact Chris Predko, Rodney Martin, Ryan Grondzik or a member of Warner Norcross + Judd’s Regulatory and Compliance Group. We specialize in ADA website compliance and are ready to help.

NOTICE. Although we would like to hear from you, we cannot represent you until we know that doing so will not create a conflict of interest. Also, we cannot treat unsolicited information as confidential. Accordingly, please do not send us any information about any matter that may involve you until you receive a written statement from us that we represent you.

By clicking the ‘ACCEPT’ button, you agree that we may review any information you transmit to us. You recognize that our review of your information, even if you submitted it in a good faith effort to retain us, and even if you consider it confidential, does not preclude us from representing another client directly adverse to you, even in a matter where that information could and will be used against you.

Please click the ‘ACCEPT’ button if you understand and accept the foregoing statement and wish to proceed.
