ADA Compliance Isn't Optional

Did you know that nearly three-quarters of businesses are unknowingly vulnerable to an ADA lawsuit? Yes, it's true. A staggering 73% of establishments fail to meet ADA compliance standards. This statistic should set off alarm bells for business or property owners. It's time to face the music and understand why so many fall short.

The Hidden Costs of Non-Compliance

California routinely faces more accessibility lawsuits than all the other states combined yearly. Numerous businesses failing to comply with ADA regulations are vulnerable to costly lawsuits. Apart from financial penalties, non-compliance can lead to customer loss, damaged reputation, and negative impact on social media, resulting in a quick snowball effect of repercussions.

Common Pitfalls

Don't fall into the ADA compliance trap! Many businesses make critical mistakes, like hiring contractors or architects without proper ADA training. Some think they're too small to be targeted or that old buildings are exempt. Big mistake! These oversights can lead to devastating lawsuits. Don't wait to be blindsided – be proactive! A comprehensive CASp inspection is your shield against costly legal battles. Protect your business and ensure accessibility for all.

Unexpected Areas of ADA Compliance

After installing a wheelchair ramp, you might think that ADA compliance is all taken care of. However, that's not the case. ADA compliance extends beyond what is immediately visible. Businesses often only address the issues mentioned in a lawsuit without realizing that a comprehensive CASp inspection is necessary to uncover other compliance issues. Without such an inspection, you could be at risk of continuing to be sued for ADA violations. A CASp inspection encompasses various aspects such as parking lots, signage, bathrooms, countertops, walkways, and industry-specific issues. Not all ADA violations may be outlined when facing a lawsuit, leading you to mistakenly believe that you are compliant when you are still at risk.
