On March 18th, the Department of Justice (DOJ) issued an opinion on ADA Compliance related to websites. While it’s not the first time that ADA Compliance for websites has been discussed, we think this is the first time an official stance has been voiced about ADA Compliance for business websites.

Since the DOJ has officially taken the stance that business websites should meet specific accessibility standards, Bergey Creative Group believes that the number of lawsuits related to non-compliance will continue the rise.
What industries are most impacted?
The need to have an accessible website should be your top priority today. The main factor driving this need has been the increase in web accessibility lawsuits.

This increase in cases has triggered an alarm for SMBs and even prompted the National Retail Federation to issue a warning to businesses urging them to start taking web accessibility seriously.
Every industry has to comply with web accessibility regulations, yet not all fields have been affected equally. Here are some industries that are at risk of being affected the most:
