Colorado companies facing business litigation over ADA issues

A growing business needs various options for reaching clients and customers. In many cases, companies these days have websites that serve multiple purposes, from advertising to sales to payment-making options. While having an appealing website is important, business owners also need to ensure that they comply with laws and regulations or face business litigation.

 

It was recently reported that multiple businesses in Colorado are facing lawsuits regarding their websites. The claims come from an out-of-state law firm representing an individual who believes that these websites violate the Americans with Disabilities Act by not providing certain accommodations for visually impaired users. For example, one business is facing claims that its site does not have captions for photos or labels for certain parts of the site.

One business owner stated that he has always wanted to comply with the ADA and had done what is necessary to ensure that the physical business location meets the requirements. However, he also indicated that he did not receive any notice informing him that there were issues with his website and instead was just served papers for the lawsuit against his business. Unfortunately, this type of scenario could happen to any company if it is not careful about compliance.

Any time a lawsuit comes against a company, it is important that owners understand their options for handling the claims. Though some lawsuits may seem frivolous and unfair, they still need to be addressed properly. Fortunately, Colorado business owners facing this type of predicament can assess the claims and their options with experienced business litigation attorneys.
