What is the ADA Act?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life and in all public and private places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the law is to make sure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. The ADA is divided into five Titles (or Sections) that relate to different areas of public life.
How Businesses Have Been Affected by ADA Title III Lawsuits
Despite its net positive effect on the lives of those with disabilities, an unintended consequence has been the explosion of frivolous lawsuits aimed primarily at racking up fees against businesses and property owners.
The law does not prohibit disabled plaintiffs from filing ADA public accommodations lawsuits.
The law also does not prohibit plaintiffs’ attorneys from seeking fees.
ADA Lawsuit Frenzy
Lawsuits filed under the ADA’s public accommodations section, Title III, have skyrocketed in federal court, making Florida #2 in the nation. Previously, these lawsuits were primarily focused in South Florida. Now ADA public accommodation lawsuits are spreading throughout Florida.
These lawsuits are sometimes filed by lawyers who recruit clients to target businesses with demand letters posing an ultimatum to either pay a quick settlement or face the threat of an ADA lawsuit.
