I'm hard of hearing and I requested in a timely manner

Customer Question

I'm hard of hearing and I requested in a timely manner (nearly 6 days) a certified ASL
Interpreter to assist me at the MSEA (Maryland State Education Association) Workshop.
MSEA provided a certified ASL Interpreter for a half day and could not provide one for a
full day. I attended this all day workshop with my caregiver who knows ASL but was only
there for the sole purpose of meeting my other physical challenges, not to sign for the
workshop. MSEA waited at the last minute to contact an ASL Interpreter the night before
the workshop but to our surprised, she informed my caregiver and me that she was very
sick and had tubes in her ears which prohibited her from signing effectively. As a result
of this mishap, MSEA requested that my caregiver to sign for the other half day and be
paid. My caregiver agreed. But, I informed MSEA that they violated my ADA rights of
2008 for being negligent and careless about providing my accommodations in a timely
manner. MSEA must take sole responsibility for their actions. They had ample time to
provide coverage and refused to do so. Do you know any lawyers who would take my case? I'm seeking monetary damages in the amount of $25,000. Your response would
be greatly appreciated.
