Join AbleDocs’s Adam Spencer and Ken Nakata as they answer your questions about the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

They’ll be tackling questions like:

·       Which states have the most lawsuits when it comes to inaccessibility of websites?

·       How much litigation is there when it comes to inaccessible websites?

·       I’m own small shop and oversee my own website. Can I get sued if it’s inaccessible?

·       Can I get sued if most of my website is accessible but the documents on it aren’t?

·       How can I protect myself from a lawsuit when it comes to my website?
