In our commitment to fostering inclusivity, we provide legal services to those grappling with the hindrances posed by non-accessible websites. Web accessibility is important.  Their are legal obligations outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) that website owners must follow. Our adept team can assist you in ensuring a more equitable digital landscape when the rules are not followed.

In an era dominated by the internet, access to information is a fundamental right. Unfortunately, many websites remain inaccessible, particularly for those with visual impairments. These individuals often confront barriers like improperly labeled images, complex navigation structures, and inaccessible forms, impeding their ability to navigate and obtain information effectively.

​Under the ADA, digital spaces, including websites, are considered public accommodations. As such, they must be accessible to individuals with disabilities, including those with visual impairments. The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) have been established as the gold standard, offering a comprehensive blueprint for creating web content that is perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust.

If you are visually impaired or blind, struggling to access information due to website inaccessibility, you are not alone. The ADA provides legal protections, ensuring that you have the right to access the same information and services as individuals without disabilities. Our team at Hakimi & Shahriari is well-versed in ADA compliance, advocating for the rights of visually impaired individuals and holding accountable those who neglect their legal obligations.

​The WCAG, developed by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), provides a globally recognized standard for web accessibility. It outlines specific guidelines for making web content more accessible, addressing issues such as text alternatives for non-text content, adaptable content, and keyboard accessibility. Our legal experts at Hakimi & Shahriari are adept at navigating the intricacies of these guidelines, ensuring that your rights are protected in the digital realm.
