ADA Lawyers

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is an important piece of civil rights legislation that became law in 1990. It prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in workplaces, schools, transportation, and essentially in all areas of public and private life. It also guarantees that people with disabilities will have equal opportunity in public accommodations, their place of employment, state and local government services, transportation, and telecommunications.

The original five titles of ADA were amended in 2008 with the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA), which made substantial changes to the definition of "disability."

Do you believe you have been denied admission to a school or been passed over for a job promotion due to your disability? Has your employer failed to make accommodations that would allow you to do your job? Morgan & Morgan wants to hear from you. Our experienced ADA discrimination attorneys are passionate about fairness and fighting for the rights of victims like you.

A Closer Look at the ADA

The ADA is divided into five titles as follows:

  • Title I: Employment 

This title covers all aspects of employment, including a provision that says employers must provide reasonable accommodations to disabled employees so that they can perform their work duties.

  • Title II: State and Local Government Services

Regulated and enforced by the U.S. Department of Justice, this title prohibits discrimination against disabled individuals in public entities such as transportation services like Amtrak.

  • Title III: Public Accommodations 

This title prevents privately owned facilities and places of business from discriminating against people with disabilities. It also mandates that businesses provide reasonable accommodations to render their facilities accessible to disabled patrons and customers.

  • Title IV: Telecommunications

Title IV mandates that telecommunications providers make accommodations to allow disabled individuals to use their services, such as providing closed captioning,

  • Title V: Miscellaneous 

The final title relates the ADA to other laws, discusses the concept of state immunity, and gives a list of conditions that are not considered disabilities.

FAQ

ADA Lawyers FAQs

  • How Does the ADA Define 'Disability'?

    The ADA establishes a legal definition for "disability"; someone disabled in another context — say, for the purpose of receiving Social Security disability benefits — may or may not fit this definition.

    disabled person is someone with a mental or physical impairment that "substantially limits one or more major life activity." It includes people with a record of that impairment, even if they are not currently disabled. Moreover, it includes people who may not be practically disabled but technically have a limiting disability.

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
