Public places must be designed and built with wheelchair access, as a failure to do so would be a case of discrimination and non-compliance. Whether it is a school, office building, bus, airport, amusement park, sporting arena, hospital, police station, museum, concert hall, or any other public area, wheelchair access should be implemented as part of the design, construction, and urban planning process.
Wheelchair access and other accommodations for disabled individuals are required by law, as indicated by the American Disabilities Act (ADA), which was implemented to prevent such discrimination from occurring. Experts hired for such cases may have a background in one or more details of wheelchair accessibility, building code, and the legal aspects of the ADA law. Architects, civil engineers, and construction contractors must work within the specifications of building code compliance and construction building codes when designing wheelchair accessibility.
The failure to provide wheelchair access is grounds for a discrimination lawsuit, whether it is in a building setting, public transportation, or any other public area. Violating the ADA act can also lead to workplace litigation, as each employee is entitled to equal rights and proper accommodations.
