Does your website meet the 508 compliance of ADA guidelines? Ready for lawsuit?
Did you know lawsuits for websites not being in compliance with ADA guidelines requirements and 508 compliance may reach 30 000 for 2020?
Gary Holm, owner of Diggitally.com, a Website Promotion and Digital Marketing Agency says “that the average settlement for such ADA Compliance lawsuits are around $35 000 and that this is certainly for those very regular and non-famous ones. Meaning those that hits the small business type of websites and can even be the question about “to be – or not to be””.
Obviously you may have heard about the more famous lawsuits where millions upon millions of dollars are in play, but the unfortunate fact is that your type of business is a target as well.
Gary Holm continues: “Did you know that there is no such thing as a pre-warning for breach of ADA requirements? You are, one day – any given day actually – at risk of finding yourself sued. If your website at that point are not at all prepared, you are basically doomed to lose”.
Did you know that the ADA requirements do not rely on a strict and specific set of rules? It is actually open for interpretation and there exists absolutely no way to be 100% sure you comply.
Stating the above, we now know a few things about what the lawsuits have been targeting and are happy to say that quite a lot of the issues can be fixed quite effortlessly for the website owner, without having to interfere with the website configuration to any large extent.
