If you’ve been discriminated against for a hearing disability, a deaf discrimination lawyer with offices in Montgomery County can help you stand up for your rights.
If you are deaf or hard of hearing, you have the right to request that reasonable accommodations to be made, including:
- That a sign language interpreter be made available to you during job training
- That a sign language interpreter be made available to you when communicating with a doctor or other health care professional
- That a sign language interpreter be made available to you when communicating with a business establishment
- That closed captioning or video phones be made available to you
If you have made a reasonable request to be accommodated due to your hearing disability and have been denied – such as being denied an American Sign Language Interpreter in an appropriate situation – you may have been discriminated against. Deaf discrimination is illegal in the United States, and you may be entitled to seek financial compensation if you were a victim of deaf discrimination.
