Resolving Our Client’s ADA Lawsuit

Our client owns and operates a local market and the parking lot in front of his store, which has been in his family for many years.  He was sued by an individual who claimed a parking space in the parking lot was not complaint the Americans with Disabilities Act.  The allegations focused on the width and the grade of the parking space. The plaintiff also claimed the space was not painted properly and the parking signs needed to be updated.  Our client faced significant penalties, as ADA violations can cost $4,000 per violation, and the defendant may be required to pay for the plaintiff attorney's fees.

Our firm worked with an ADA expert and our client to promptly settle the case for much less than the plaintiff's demand. We also helped our client to take preventive measures to avoid future ADA lawsuits. Settling the case allowed our client to move forward and focus on his business again.

If you have questions about ADA compliance and how to protect your business from these lawsuits, feel free to contact the attorneys at Chauvel & Glatt.
