Does this sound familiar to you? You are on your way to a job interview or a medical appointment only to find that the office where you are scheduled to go is inaccessible due to the fact that it is not wheelchair friendly. You may have felt discriminated against or unimportant but figured that there was nothing that could be done about it. But the good news is, you are wrong about that. Thanks to the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design, you are actually protected in these circumstances. Let’s take a look at how these government protections benefit you:
How the ADA Standards for Accessible Design Protects You
The ADA Standards for Accessible Design was enacted in 2010 with the express purpose of protecting people with disabilities by establishing official guidelines that businesses have to follow in order to make their building accessible to everyone. The Americans with Disabilities Act instructs companies on how their buildings are to be designed and is ultimately a protection for anyone with a disability.
If you have encountered a building that you believe is out of compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, we can help. Our team of helpful individuals and ADA experts will fight for you to gain access to this building by making sure that the business at fault makes the necessary changes to the layout and/or design of their building. If these are services that you could benefit from, please do not hesitate to contact us today. We look forward to working with you!
