At DoctorsInternet.com we always stay on top of the latest issues whether it is a new online marketing tool or a government law. Below is a short blurb about the fact that the amount of lawsuits against healthcare businesses due to having a “non-compliant” website in the US is growing. Non-scrupulous attorneys are filing multiple lawsuits regarding websites that are not compliant with The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). These lawsuits are generally because either a person with a visual impairment cannot access or navigate your website (you need a screen reader app or visual assistance options) or a person with a hearing impairment cannot hear a video that is on your website (you need closed captioning).
Having an ADA compliant website is not only essential for avoiding potential lawsuits but also for providing equal access to information and services for individuals with disabilities. In fact, making your website accessible to everyone can increase your patient base and office reputation. The internet has become an integral part of our lives, and websites that are not accessible can create a significant barrier for individuals with disabilities, preventing them from accessing necessary information and services. By ensuring your website is ADA compliant, you are not only adhering to the law, but you are also creating an inclusive environment for all individuals, regardless of their abilities.
At DoctorsInternet.com all of our websites comply with current ADA law. If you go to our company website at DoctorsInternet.com you can see our ADA compliance icon on the bottom left of our website.

“The year 2022 saw a significant increase in the number of lawsuits filed regarding the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) compliance of websites, with over 3,250 cases being reported. This is a considerable jump from the previous year, indicating the growing importance of making websites accessible for individuals with disabilities. With the trend continuing to rise, it's predicted that the number of lawsuits filed in 2023 will be greater than the previous year. Healthcare websites seem to be a prime target for these frivolous lawsuits. This means that it's more important than ever for businesses to ensure that their websites are fully compliant with the ADA to avoid potential legal issues and ensure they are accessible to all.”
