Disabilities and ADA Experts for Travel Mishaps
You may have heard that an ADA Expert can work as a witness to help you with a court case related to your disabilities. However, the reasons you could need an ADA Expert might be clear. Once you have a better understanding of what they do and how they can help, you will know how to hire one the next time you have an ADA compliance issue that results in a lawsuit.
What are the types of ADA experts?
Unfortunately, people living with disabilities may find that they need to file a lawsuit because they cannot gain access to a facility or event with the reasonable accommodation and accessibility that they are entitled to under the law. When the case goes to court, having an independent third-party witness that has expert advice can help both sides of the argument come to a conclusion.
In general, there are seven different types of ADA experts you may need that have backgrounds in areas such as:
Contractors and construction
Public government spaces
The ADA itself
What kinds of experience does an ADA expert have?
When an ADA expert agrees to testify as a witness for your case, they come with a lot of authority. For example, in cases involving wheelchair ramps, someone with experience with the construction of public office buildings may be of use. For issues where there are problems with accessible park accommodations, an ADA expert with a background in construction or architecture will be relevant to your case.
Tough cases need ADA experts.
In many instances, the person that is not up to code with issues such as building compliance will help a person with disabilities to overcome these situations with ease. Regardless, when a person is denied reasonable access and the ADA is involved in this denial, what kind of choices does a person with disabilities have to rectify the matter?
It is up to the ADA to safeguard the situation, but what if the ADA is at fault? Even when tough situations like this arise, there is hope with ADA experts. They can help lawyers, judges, and administrators to sort through cases quickly by pointing out the truth from a third-party perspective.
