Can I be sued for not having an ADA compliant website even if I didn’t intentionally exclude disabled users?

Yes, it is possible for businesses and organizations to be sued for not having an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliant website, even if they did not intentionally exclude disabled users. The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in many areas of public life, including in the workplace and in places of public accommodation. While the ADA does not specifically mention websites, many courts have interpreted the law to require that websites be accessible to people with disabilities.

In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the number of lawsuits alleging that websites are not accessible to people with disabilities, and many of these lawsuits have been successful. These lawsuits have been brought against a wide range of businesses and organizations, including small businesses, government agencies, and large corporations.

It is important to note that the ADA does not require businesses and organizations to make their websites fully compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). However, it does require them to make reasonable efforts to ensure that their facilities, products, and services are accessible to people with disabilities. This includes making their websites as accessible as possible, given the resources available to them.

With My Site Comply, you don’t have to worry about being sued because you are making the best effort to be accessible.
