Facility Accessibility/ADA Compliance
With more than 35,000 accessibility lawsuits filed in California during the last several years, such lawsuits often pose a significant and ongoing disruption to our clients' hospitality and leisure services. Although some claims involve true accessibility barriers to goods and services, these lawsuits all too often include the familiar predatory claims that attempt to extort settlement payments in exchange for dismissal of time-consuming and costly litigation.
We assist our clients in discerning true barriers to hospitality and leisure services that require remediation, while zealously defending our clients against unwarranted predatory lawsuits. Allen Matkins litigation attorneys have extensive experience defending against such predatory lawsuits and we routinely help our clients navigate through federal and state accessibility laws, including the recently amended Construction-Related Accessibility Standards Compliance Act.
