Businesses on the Florida Suncoast- Is Your Website ADA Compliant?

Businesses on the Florida Suncoast- Is Your Website ADA Compliant?

The lawsuits continue to mount. Several businesses on Anna Maria Island, Florida were sued and other businesses in the Clearwater, Sarasota, Bradenton, Venice areas have been targeted.

There is legal concern happening in the digital atmosphere that may affect your business. In the last couple of years there has been an uptick in Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) lawsuits when it comes to website accessibility.

Advocates for the disabled say websites need to be as accessible for everyone, just as brick-and-mortar stores must be.  There have been judgements / settlements in excess of $20,000.

 

 

You certainly would want to get ahead of any potential issue and discuss how this could pertain to your website and possibly affect your business. It is strongly recommended that you receive assistance and you should go ahead with the process of making your website meet Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. (WCAG)

The team at Sande Caplin & Associates has significant experience in dealing with this issue. We have re-coded over a dozen websites with more in process.
