The Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC Filed Case Under Americans with Disabilities Act


Marlton, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/23/2017 -- On March 1, 2017, the Law Firm of Jacobson & Rooks, LLC, respected work sexual harassment attorneys in Camden County and surrounding areas, filed a case in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania on behalf of their disabled client who was denied the privileges of a place of public accommodation. The Defendant operated a public parking garage in Philadelphia which failed to provide any handicap-accessible parking spaces. The Firm clearly and concisely outlined the facts of the case for the court.

The Complaint alleged that the parking garage failed to comply with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). In addition to failing to provide any handicap-accessible parking spaces the parking garage also failed to comply in several other areas. In particular, the Complaint alleged that the facility's handrails failed to meet the requirements of the ADA, thereby causing a potential safety issue.

The Americans with Disabilities Act was enacted in 1990 to ensure that individuals with disabilities are not discriminated against. In addition, it provides clear standards to prevent such discrimination, including outlining requirements for accessibility in public facilities. In the instance of this case, the plaintiff's disability made it difficult for them to walk great distances, and their vehicle was equipped with a handicapped placard which indicates that they may use handicap accessible spaces, which the parking facility in question failed to provide.
