Denver, CO asked in Personal Injury for Colorado

Q: Does it allow for the entity to transfer the burden of accommodations with bodily injury to deaf attendants?

The city provides free movie nights but doesn't have either open or closed captions for deaf attendants. So they provided a secondary accommodation by giving us an iPad that does captions separately from the movie. However, we had to hold it up in the line of sight with the big screen jumbotron size in a football field. We have to hold up the iPad in the air for about 2 hours per movie which will cause muscle cramps and bodily injury. Isn't that discriminatory?

A: A Colorado attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. This could be something that attorneys who work with the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) would know better than most personal injury attorneys. There isn't a section here on ADA specialists - although there are civil rights firms (and Civil Rights is a category on this Q & A forum) that work with ADA matters. Good luck
