ADA Disability Compliance
ADC is dedicated to finding potential restrictions and/or deficiencies in order to make your business accessible to all customers and before they are subjected to lawsuits. Two areas most likely to be non-compliant are parking areas and bathrooms. ADC will perform a comprehensive survey of your business extensively detailing all areas subject to the Americans with Disability Act.
In California there is no “grace” period for corrections
Many businesses are being unnecessarily subjected to “Drive-by” lawsuits for the slightest of infractions. American Disability Consultants (ADC) was founded for the purpose of informing business owners of the potential liabilities they face due to non-compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1991.
Damages under Unruh
Whoever discriminates in violation of the Unruh act is liable for each offense for actual damages and a minimum of $4,000 up to three times the amount of actual damages, along with attorney’s fees. (Civ. Code § 52.)
While reasonable people would think a business should be allowed 60 days to meet compliance, this act allows litigants to sue for repairs and damages immediately. Further, structures built before 1990 are no longer “Grandfathered” in except under special circumstances.
