Clearwater, FL, August 11, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- National ADA Accessibility Compliance Network, Inc., (NADA-ACN), an ADA accessibility consulting company, in response to the tidal wave of accessibility lawsuits for non-compliance of the federal law pertaining to the American’s with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) now offers its expertise and services to business and commercial property owners in the Middle and Southern Districts of Florida.
Many business and commercial property owners are under the false impression that they are compliant because they have a city, county, and/or state license, or they believe they are “grandfathered” due to the age of the building. Regardless of the permits and age of the building all businesses and commercial properties open to the public are subject to some level of compliance. Tenants and landlords are both joint and severally responsible for being compliant. Violations are easy to find.
Under the ADA, business and commercial properties open to the public are required to allow people with disabilities access to all portions of the business which are open to the general public. Access must include, among other things, properly designated parking, with no steps or curbs blocking an entrance. Bathrooms and aisles must be able to accommodate customers with wheelchairs and counters cannot be too high. The law allows a disabled person who has been denied access to any business or commercial property because of violations to file a lawsuit without complaining to anyone prior to filing that lawsuit.
Founded in 2010, National ADA-ACN addresses the needs of business owners, commercial property owners, and the disabled community, as well as the uprising of lawsuits against noncompliant businesses, National ADA Accessibility Compliance Network (http://www.NationalADAACN.com) and its ADA Compliance Specialists are now available in the Middle and Southern Districts of Florida assisting, educating and promoting access for the disabled through “readily achievable” and “technically feasible” modifications as required through the Department of Justice.
NADA-ACN provides business and commercial property owners with affordable ADA compliance inspection services which, ultimately, not only increases awareness in the levels of noncompliance, but also increases revenues, as Good Access is Good Business. People with disabilities patronize business and commercial properties with friends and families, ultimately increasing customers and sales.
