RIGHTS OF INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES
No one should experience different treatment because of his or her disability. To ensure that the rights of individuals with impairments are protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act, we handle lawsuits in the New York City boroughs, and New York State, on behalf of disabled individuals, who are subjected to discrimination.
The goal is to make sure that disabled people are not prevented from being independent, have freedom of choice, full control of their lives, and the opportunity to fully and equally participate in the mainstream society. To achieve this, we strive to deliver exceptional legal services.
ACCESS TO PLACES OF PUBLIC ACCOMMODATION
Do you use a wheelchair?
As a consequence, you cannot visit
- coffee shops,
- doctors' offices,
and other commercial establishments?
You have the right to park your car in handicapped spaces, but you are experiencing difficulties getting from the car to the commercial establishment?
Contact Michael Grinblat in order to receive possible compensation, to which you may be entitled for your inconveniences. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, commercial establishments must grant you barrier-free access.
If you have encountered barriers while you visited these kinds of places, contact attorney Michael Grinblat, who will defend you from discrimination based on your disability, as well as help you receive substantial compensation, if you are eligible for it. Although thousands of disabled individuals have gotten used to that kind of discrimination, the Americans with Disabilities Act is on their side.
Michael Grinblat defended the rights of the disabled in New York's federal courts on numerous occasions. Many commercial establishments remediated their violations as a result of his efforts.
If you are having difficulties with visiting places of public accommodation, such as
- coffee shops
- doctor's offices
- hospitals and
- the like
and are disabled and/or use assistive devices for mobility, such as
- wheelchair (electric or manual) and/or
- walker and/or
- scooter and/or
- a license plate for the disabled and/or
- a handicapped placard, then
- YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO RECEIVE SUBSTANTIAL COMPENSATION for discrimination against you
- YOU WILL NOT ONLY HELP YOURSELF, BUT ALSO THOUSANDS OF VISITORS OF PLACES OF PUBLIC ACCOMMODATION, WHO HAVE DIFFICULTIES WITH MOBILITY
Do you have difficulties visiting a store or a restaurant?
Were you denied access to places of public accommodation due to your impairment?
Businesses that make it difficult for a handicapped person to visit their facilities are violating the federal, New York State and New York City laws, and may be required to remove architectural barriers that prevent a disabled person from using them like everyone else.
A disabled individual may receive substantial compensation from businesses that discriminated against him or her.
However, each situation is different and whether a person is potentially eligible to receive compensation can be ascertained only during a consultation with an attorney.
We represent disabled individuals in all NYC boroughs and some New York State counties.
