I don’t have the latest data on the average lawsuit penalties for websites with no ADA compliance. However, according to recent reports, businesses that fail to comply with ADA regulations can face significant legal penalties, ranging from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the severity of the violation and the number of complaints filed. It’s important for businesses to ensure that their websites are accessible to all users and comply with ADA guidelines to avoid potential legal liabilities.
Why bother with ADA WCAG 508 Efforts and Expense?
Getting your website ADA compliant is important because it ensures that your website is accessible to all individuals, including those with disabilities. By making your website more accessible, you are not only fulfilling a legal obligation, but also helping to create a more inclusive and welcoming online space for everyone. Additionally, an ADA compliant website can improve user experience, increase traffic, and boost your website’s search engine rankings.
