According to the Americans with Disabilities Act, federal laws require most publicly zoned properties adhere to certain standards of accessibility and usability. Property owners and business owners, however, are often unaware of how rigid these standards are and what they must do to bring their property up to code.
Protecting Property Owners From ADA Noncompliance Claims
At the Law Firm of Rivers J. Morrell, III, our attorneys work with property owners and businesses to interpret these laws and how they will affect the piece of property in question. We provide valuable legal guidance to ensure that property is up to code and that the owner will not face ADA noncompliance claims.
For more information about ADA compliance and how it affects your property, please contact our law offices today at 951-200-5857.
These standards require amenities such as wheelchair ramps, handrails, wide doorways and accessible restrooms, as well as other property-specific features. As a business or property owner, it is important that you know exactly what is needed to bring your property up to code, rather than wasting money on unnecessary upgrades or risking a claim against your property.
Some property owners assume that they are exempt from these standards since they owned and operated the property before the law was passed. All property, however, falls under the ADA, and owners must take immediate steps to bring their venue up to code.
If you are facing a claim, we can provide skilled legal representation in defending against the claim. Our lawyers are prepared to do thorough investigation and deliver solutions that will prevent the claim from becoming a distraction to the business.
