An accessibility lawsuit is a case in a court of law. That is, a case is filed by a user against the organization owning the website. A user files a case when they find the organization not abiding the accessibility laws.
People across the globe have a right to be treated equally. In our context, any kind of disability should not create inequality.
Different countries across the world have their own laws for accessibility. For example, America has laws namely, Section 508, ADA, etc. And website owners have to abide by these laws.
If website owners do not abide by the laws passed by the government they have to be ready to face accessibility lawsuits.
Say, your website has not followed an accessibility rule. If a user catches this glitch then there are chances of them filing a lawsuit against you.
Once you get a lawsuit you have to invest a lot of time and money. You’ll lose a lot of time in running around and you’ll lose a huge amount of money by paying penalty. So you are actually reducing your profit.
