December 5, 2012

SullivanCurtisMonroe (SCM) has launched ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Compliance Plus, a new national program exclusively offered by SCM that reimburses property owners for all legal expenses associated with ADA non-compliance, whether legitimate or frivolous. The new program also provides a platform to safeguard the insured from future claims by providing a panel of ADA attorney experts, ADA compliance training partners and legislative lobbyists to its members.

Kraatz, executive vice president of SCM. “Our national data reveals that over the last few years alone, a variety of industry sectors have been hit with over 60,000 accessibility-related claims.”
