Defending ADA Lawsuits

“Brad helped me stand strong against a shakedown lawsuit by predatory lawyers. My business, along with several other businesses, were targets of extortionate disability lawsuits. The lawsuit demanded an exorbitant amount of money from my business which would have bankrupted my company. Other companies that were sued and I hired Brad to protect us. Brad successfully saved my business…” Van Trang, T-Tek Auto, San Diego

Any business that is established in San Diego or other cities across California must be compliant with California’s Unruh Civil Rights Act. It is a California legislation that forbids any discrimination based on race, religion, age, color, sex, sexual orientation, and disability. Businesses must also be compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. It prohibits any form of discrimination to Americans with disability.

Do you believe that there is even a slightest of the possibility of you getting sued? You should immediately contact Nakase Law Firm to get proper guidance and best possible legal solution.

We Understand!

 At Nakase Law Firm, we have the invaluable experience of working with plaintiff disability lawsuit lawyers. We have the expertise that empowers us to handle your case from every possible angle. For years, attorney Brad Nakase has successfully defended many businesses across California taken to court for violations of Unruh Civil Rights Act and ADA.

Smaller businesses are targeted more by plaintiff disability lawyers. On the other hand, plaintiffs do not sue larger enterprises quite often. It is mainly because of three main reasons:

  • Larger companies construct their buildings by following federal and state building guidelines to ensure that they comply with disability laws.
  • Smaller businesses do not have enough resources to construct by following federal and state building guidelines.
  • Larger companies defend their cases by hiring expensive law firms, and smaller businesses have to opt for settlements.

Either we dismiss cases on legal grounds, or there is a determined negotiation on a settlement which our client can pay.

Why Hire Nakase Law Firm In Case of a Disability Lawsuit? 

Compliance with the Unruh Civil Rights Act and ADA are essential for your business. In case you’re unable to do it, your business is prone to lawsuits. Here are a few decisive reasons why hiring us to defend your business against a disability lawsuit can benefit you:

We Are An Experienced Law Firm 

Brad Nakase is considered among the best when it comes to defending disability lawsuits. His track record is quite admirable. Nakase Law Firm takes pride in defending seemingly impossible disability lawsuits, and it is all because of the bold approach and intellectual thoroughness of Brad Nakase. Our extensive experience in ADA and Unruh, Civil Rights Act, enables us to help our clients from even the gravest of situations.

We Give Utmost Priority To Our Clients

Lawyers are expensive, and we understand that attorneys that have no experience in handling these sorts of cases can cost you a lot of money. Unfortunately, many attorneys try to rack unnecessary legal fees and costs on their clients by putting them through long-drawn-out litigations. Our foremost priority is to ensure you don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on unnecessary legal processes. Brad Nakase is known for getting his clients out of lawsuits early and inexpensively. We will never waste any of your time just for the sake of racking up legal fees and costs. We will try to get the case dismissed on substantial legitimate grounds, or we can also come up with a settlement that you are willing to pay. 

We Provide Solutions from Our Support Network 

Thanks to our extensive network all across California, we have connections with many disability experts. This support network enables us to bring your business into compliance and find a solution to the problem with a calculated yet practical approach. Sometimes, a simple sigh for handicaps is enough to prevent the lawsuit. You’ll be surprised to know how we utilize our experience and knowledge of ADA and Unruh Civil Rights Act to dismiss cases of lawsuits on legal grounds.

We Deliver Satisfactory Results 

What makes Nakase Law Firm the best firm when it comes to defending disability lawsuits is that we do not prolong the process. We have a quite straight forward approach: dismiss the case on legal grounds or if you approve, then negotiate a settlement. Usually, we only negotiate an agreement when there is a violation of the ADA and Unruh Civil Rights Acts on your end. Nevertheless, our primary focus is on making sure that fast and satisfactory results are delivered.


Drive-By ADA Lawsuits 

Some plaintiff’s lawyers hire the services of professional disability experts that drive by businesses in search of any possible violations. These people look for any company that is not complying with ADA regulations, and when they do find one, they prepare themselves for another drive-by lawsuit. Therefore, your business needs to have the proper signage. It is because they won’t come inside your business and they will skip your business and move on to another one.

Frequent Violations We Handle in Disability Lawsuits

  • Non-accessibility of the path of travel
  • Non-availability of the parking area
  • The height of countertop is too high
  • There are some obstacles to the entrance
  • There are no required signage, striping or any van accessible signage
  • The space between aisle ways is not much


Q: How do I find out that my business is compliant with the Unruh Civil Rights Act and ADA? 

 You can determine the requirements for compliance by several factors, such as the date of construction, type of facility, etc. You can also check more about these acts online, or you can contact us at 619-550-1321 for proper guidance.

Q: I want to make my business comply with the ADA requirements, but I cannot do it due to the current financial condition. What should I do?

 We fully understand your situation here, as times are tough. However, you need to comprehend that the cost of an ADA lawsuit will be more than making your business comply with the ADA requirements. In an ADA lawsuit, you’ll have to pay attorney fees, damages associated with the trial, court costs, and eventually, you’ll have to pay for the corrections. You can call us at 619-550-1321 for more guidance on this matter.

Q: Are most ADA lawsuits insubstantial? 

 Sometimes, ADA lawsuits are insubstantial. But you’ll be surprised to know that most of these lawsuits are based on some legal merit. Many business owners approach us and claim that their businesses comply with these handicap laws. When we do a thorough investigation, we find out they are unaware that their business violates Unruh and ADA laws. It is essential to understand that some violations of these laws are minor, yet they are enough for a lawsuit.

Q: Can I get a warning letter first, which will give me a grace period to fix the violation?

 Although a plaintiff can give you a verbal or written warning, it doesn’t happen quite often. In the past, there have been various failed attempts to pass grace period legislations. There is the introduction of a 90-day grace period bill in the Congress, but it is currently pending. Hence, the law doesn’t require the plaintiff to send you any warning before filing a lawsuit against your business. Therefore, you need to fix any kind of violation that you know of before someone files a lawsuit against you. If you are unaware of any breach, contact us at 619-550-1321 for guidance. You’ll be surprised to know that a lot of businesses in California are unknowingly violating these laws in one way or another.

Q: If someone files a lawsuit against me, can my insurance cover it?

 We highly doubt your insurance will cover it. Many insurance companies used to defend and compensate the insured in the past. However, not many insurance companies follow this practice anymore. You can contact your insurance provider, but you can expect a letter clarifying they cannot cover you in this lawsuit.

Q: How much will I be fined for the violation? 

 A plaintiff can get a minimum of $4000 per visit and also other costs such as attorney fees, courts costs, etc. In case your business is in violation, then we would highly recommend you not to fight the case and settle it. It is mainly because the plaintiff may be awarded more if you lose the case.

Q: How much do I have to pay if I settle a ADA Lawsuit?

A: Although it depends on the attorney of the plaintiff, the settlements can range from $3000 to $7000 or even more.
