Many ADA investigations begin with a complaint from a member of the general public. Many more actually originate from a drive-by lawsuit, which occurs when an ADA investigator literally drives past a storefront and spots a potential ADA violation. No matter how the investigation begins, you should prepare for it all the same by keeping proof of your due diligence and contacting an ADA defense lawyer.
The investigation process will likely include:
The DOJ does not only rely on individual inspections and complaints from the public to start ADA investigations. They have also been known to complete investigative “sweeps” that target either a specific geographic area, such as an entire block in a city, or all branches of a nationwide company. While these sweeps are more generalized in nature, they are typically more intense and agents act with a higher level of scrutiny. If your business has been targeted for investigation, and you have a considerable presence in your market, you must be aware that the DOJ could choose file a lawsuit against you in knowing that you are more likely to have the resources to both make improvements and pay their fines.
ADA violations are not exactly cumulative in the way that being noncompliant with just one regulation can exact a heavy penalty upon your business. If you want to protect yourself and all you have worked for, you should call 877.253.5406 today and let our ADA defense attorney know about the ADA complaints filed against you. With our legal assistance and counsel, you may be able to meet all ADA standards prior to the investigation or challenge their lawsuit in court.
