Exposure of Sexual Organs Cases
Sexual Organ Exposure Attorney Assisting Those Subjected To Indecent Exposure in Florida
We all have a right to go into public without being harassed or threatened by others. While issuing threats or harassing someone is bad enough, there are those who go beyond the pale and expose themselves to others in public. If someone exposes themselves to you in a public venue then, depending on the circumstances, the venue may be liable for damages. If you have been subjected to such a situation, contact us today to speak with a Florida sexual organ exposure attorney.
Bringing Claims Against Venues Which Allow Indecent Exposures To Occur
When the owner of a location or venue makes their space open to the public, then they must take steps to ensure the safety of their visitors. If they fail to take these steps, and someone is harmed as a result, then the owner or operator of the facility may be required to pay damages. One does not have to endure a physical injury to “suffer harm.” The trauma of someone exposing their anatomy to you can inflict emotional distress which is compensable. Common venues in which there may be a civil suit due to indecent exposure can include bars, nightclubs, concert halls, sporting arenas, grocery and retail stores, etc.
Examples of how a property operator may fail to keep the premises safe can include the following:
- Failing to properly monitor and secure the area – if an area is not monitored by either security personnel or cameras then the property owner may be creating a dangerous situation. They can be held liable if a bad actor takes advantage of this situation.
- Allowing bad actors to return – If the property owner has previously had to remove individuals from the premises, and they are allowed to return, then the owner is on notice of the potential problem. They can be held responsible for harm that the bad actors then cause.
- Failing to properly monitor patrons – If one operates a bar or a restaurant then it is important to monitor the patrons for observed intoxication levels. If someone is noticeably drunk and is allowed to remain, then they potentially become a risk to others.
- Failing to act on reports – If patrons of an establishment report that someone is becoming aggressive or belligerent, then the owner may be liable for actions they take after being allowed to stay.
Whether an owner can actually be held liable for an indecent exposure that occurs on their property will always depend on the specifics of the situation.
