IMPORTANT CLAIM NOTICE
Crosby & Henry has always tried to be proactive in advising insureds regarding potential claims and needs for action to avoid them. Below is a claim situation that has affected some of our insureds recently and the trend for this type of claim is growing.
There have been either Individual or Class Action Lawsuits based on Website Accessibility to vision impaired individuals. The suits reference Americans Disability Act (ADA) violations and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Web Content Accessibility Guidelines defines how to make web content more accessible to people with disabilities. The accounts involved have websites that are not in full compliance with ADA/WCAG; the usual settlement for this type claim is between $10,000 and $20,000 plus the cost to make your website ADA/WCAG accessible; as much as $5,000.
There are several Web Accessibility solutions available. We strongly recommend you contact your Web Master as soon as possible to make sure you have the necessary software to make your website accessible to all users. Besides being compliant with the WCAG, the software can potentially increase your customer base.
If you have Employment Practices Liability Insurance (EPLI) including Third Party coverage, your insurance should respond to this type of claim. If you do not have the coverage you are susceptible to an uncovered claim. We will be reviewing this with you during your next insurance renewal, but do not hesitate to contact your Crosby & Henry agent before that to see if you have coverage.
