The same laws that protect the rights of mobility impaired persons to gain access to businesses also protect the rights of visually impaired persons to gain access to the same businesses.

For example, businesses are required to have detectable warnings (as shown in the picture below) at certain places  to serve as a warning to visually impaired persons so that they can be careful and avoid injury. The failure to have detectable warnings is a serious violation and could entitle you to relief if you have experienced discomfort, difficulty or embarrassment.

Mobility Impaired?

The Los Angeles Disability Lawyers at The Law Office of Hakimi & Shahriari fight for the rights of disabled people throughout the City of Los Angeles. Disabled persons have special legal protections against discrimination in gaining access to businesses (for example supermarkets, restaurants, gas stations, corner stores, shopping centers etc.), employment and housing, to name a few. There are federal laws (for example, the Americans with Disabilities Act) and state laws (for example, the Unruh Civil Rights Act) which protect the rights of disabled persons.


Importantly, the state laws make monetary damages available to persons that have experienced discrimination and both federal and state laws make defendants liable for a plaintiff's attorney fees and costs. In other words, our fees and costs in successfully litigating a disability rights case are paid by the defendant. They are never paid by you!


The Los Angeles Disability Lawyers at The Law Office of Hakimi & Shahriari are fierce advocates for the rights of disabled people. Most disability rights cases end up in federal court and our disability attorneys have appeared in front of and are very familiar with the specific rules and practices of every federal judge that hears disability access cases in Los Angeles.


The Los Angeles disability rights lawyers at our law firm have successfully litigated hundreds of cases in state and federal court. We are extraordinarily familiar with every stage of the litigation process and are prepared to take every single case to trial, if necessary.


Ninety-five percent (95%) of cases where the plaintiff is represented by an attorney actually informally resolve (i.e. settle) before trial. It is commonly agreed that having an attorney has a significant impact on a person's success in litigation.  





Visually impaired?

Per California and Federal law landlords of businesses are required to make their properties physically accessible to people with mobility impairments. 


So, if you use a wheelchair, walker, cane, mobility scooter or other mobility device you have special legal rights that protect your ability to safely and comfortably gain access to all businesses. These legal protections require landlords to fix their properties, pay your damages and pay all of your attorney fees and costs.


Of serious concern in Los Angeles is that many commercial landlords that own hundreds of properties do not follow the law when it comes to Parking. For a brief discussion of Parking Requirements click HERE. If a landlord's failure to following the parking rules has caused you difficulty, discomfort or embarrassment you could be entitled to damages.
