Resolving ADA Compliance Issues

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that commercial facilities are accessible to people with disabilities. A business owner or commercial property owner may not realize that their property is not ADA compliant until they are notified of a violation via a lawsuit. Lack of compliant handicap-accessible parking spaces, ADA violations in restrooms, such as lack of grab bars or too-narrow doorways, check-out counter height and the like are common ADA violations.

Located in Sacramento, Duggan Law Corporation has successfully assisted numerous property owners, landlords, tenants and small businesses with defending against ADA access claims. Our firm combines the skill of a big firm with the personal attention only available from a small law office. Our attorneys have significant courtroom experience and are prepared to take a case to trial if negotiations do not reach a desired goal.

ADA Guidelines And Statutory Damages

Many commercial tenants may not know that they need to be ADA compliant. A commercial landlord may have rented a building for years without making updates that comply with ADA guidelines. This is why clients often come to us only after they have been threatened with litigation.

Business owners need to take these claims seriously, because California law provides plaintiffs with statutory damages as well as attorneys fees and costs even when a violation is minor. In general, in only limited circumstances will an older buildings be excused from ADA compliance. If remediation is not readily achievable, however, it could provide a defense.
