What is ADA compliance?


The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 provides comprehensive civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities. This law includes web accessibility and is important as the internet has become increasingly necessary for businesses and consumers.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) is a comprehensive guidebook explaining how to design websites, ensuring they are operable for people with disabilities. This guidebook has been widely accepted as the industry standard for ADA compliance.


Why is it important for your business to be ADA compliant?


If your website is not ADA compliant, your business is subject to potential lawsuits and/or significant fines.

  • 3,250 cases were filed against ADA non-compliant businesses in 2022, and the upward trend of lawsuits and demand letters continues.
  • Businesses and organizations can be fined up to $150,000 for ADA violations; average ADA website lawsuit settlements range from $20,000 to $50,000.
  • There has been an average of 13% year-over-year increase in web accessibility-related lawsuits.

Providing web-accessibility makes life better and simpler for people with disabilities by ensuring they can easily navigate your site. It also demonstrates to the market that your company is inclusive and values all customers.
