When operating a business and assessing your risk of getting hit with an ADA lawsuit, the first step is to look at your state's frequency of accessibility lawsuits and their prevalence over time. Unfortunately for those businesses in California, this does not bring much comfort. From 2013 to 2020, California has had approximately 42% of all ADA cases in the U.S., being number #1 of any state for ADA litigation. With an average increase of 32%, year over year in California and a nationwide average increase of 21%, ADA lawsuits are not going away anytime soon.


ADA lawsuits can vary widely but often have a $4,000 minimum, often per visit, and can be as much as $100,000 in some cases. The cost of defending an ADA action is usually high because the cases are fact-intensive that require expert testimony, and the plaintiffs' attorneys tend to be aggressive. Many small businesses think they fly under the radar and are not high-value targets for these types of lawsuits. Unfortunately, many of the frivolous lawsuits in California target small businesses because of the knowledge they will be less likely to afford litigation and want to settle.
