Video Voyeurism Cases
Florida Video Voyeurism Attorneys Assisting Those Who Have Been Recorded Without Permission
Video voyeurism occurs when someone makes an intimate recording of you without having your permission to do so. Perpetrators often engage in such recordings to satisfy their own sexual interests or, in some situations, to obtain video or images which they intend to resell. When this conduct occurs, it is not uncommon for it to have taken place in schools, places of business, hotels, or other similar locations. In such instances, it may be possible to bring a claim against the school district, the owner of the business, or parties beyond the perpetrator themselves. If you have been the victim of video voyeurism, then contact our office today to speak with a Florida video voyeurism attorney.
Multiple Parties Face Liability if You Were Recorded Without Permission
It is a crime in the state of Florida for someone to secretly record you while you are in an intimate state and with an expectation of privacy. This can include recording you, without your knowledge, during sexual activity, while you are changing clothes in a private area, or while using the restroom. These types of acts often occur in gyms, locker rooms, theater dressing rooms, hotels, and other such venues. If an employee or someone else in an organization abuses their position and uses it to gain video and images of others, then the organization may face liability.
If a company or organization fails to adequately screen or supervise their employees, then they may be liable if an individual engages in video voyeurism. Examples of conduct that can result in liability include, but are not limited to:
- A gym employee who places secret cameras in one of the locker rooms
- A school employee who secretly records students in the restroom or gym locker room
- Employees or personnel who secretly record performers while changing in a dressing room
- An apartment manager or maintenance worker who secretly places a camera inside of a unit
- An office manager or employee who places hidden cameras in a company restroom
- An individual and/or company that hacks into a homeowner’s private surveillance camera system
Damages in such a case can include compensation for emotional distress as well as the pain and suffering the victim endures. Punitive damages may also be appropriate if the evidence shows that an employer or organization had reason to believe the conduct was occurring. Also, if the victim incurs expenses, such as therapy/medical bills, as a result of the conduct, then they will be able to file a claim to recoup them.
