January 10, 2019
Source: Usablenet

UsableNet, a provider of web accessibility technology and services has tracked all the 2018 federally filed ADA web accessibility-related lawsuits and provides a free recap report.

In the December 27, 2018 report, data is compiled across 2,285 lawsuits, which is an increase of 181% over 2017, which had 814 similar cases.

The recap report highlights data for web accessibility lawsuits in 2018 compared to 2017 and it examines which top industries were targeted for inaccessible websites. The majority of lawsuits were filed in New York and Florida, but this reflects where plaintiffs and their lawyers live and not necessarily the companies being targeted. Any company that does business in these states can be targeted.

A recap of the highlights and download of the report is available to republish and share for free at
