Failure To Provide Accommodations To People With Disabilities
At the Law Offices of Daniel Snyder, we understand how important it is for individuals with any disability to be properly accommodated. It is not only the right thing to do but also required under the law. This applies to many services individual businesses and the state itself provides, including easy access to websites and interpreters when dealing with law enforcement.
If you feel as though you were not provided with the correct accommodations for your disability in Portland, contact our Law Offices online. We will explain all of your rights and lay out your options moving forward.
Denial Of Accommodations In Oregon For Deaf And Blind Individuals
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) sets forth very strict guidelines regarding the accommodations that are required specifically for deaf and blind people. Some of the requirements include:
- Providing an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter for individuals who need assistance communicating
- Making websites accessible for individuals through Job Access With Speech (JAWS)
These requirements mean that service providers must pay for interpreters and updates to their websites out of their own pocket. If you have questions regarding what other requirements exist for all types of disabilities, we can help.
Who Do The ADA Requirements Apply To?
The requirements set forth under the ADA apply to many professionals, service providers and state and local government, including:
- Police officers
If you have been in contact with any professional who has refused to comply with ADA requirements that protect your specific disability, or if you have been arrested and were not provided with an interpreter or a telephone with text capabilities so you can communicate, you need to protect your rights with a skilled Portland lawyer. Our attorneys at the Law Offices of Daniel Snyder can help.
