HOW COMMON ARE ADA LAWSUITS IN CALIFORNIA?
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.
