Sexually Transmitted Diseases
Finding out that you have been infected with a sexually transmitted disease (STD) or infection (STI) feels shocking, surreal and, for many, terrifying. Fortunately, medical treatment for STDs has come a long way. A diagnosis with HIV/AIDS or Herpes I or II is manageable, but it can still have lasting repercussions for your life. At Levine & Blit LLP, our attorneys preserve dignity and justice for people who have been unlawfully infected with STDs and STIs.
Just as you rely on a medical professional to protect your physical health, you should consider speaking with a legal professional who can help you take appropriate action for the financial and emotional ramifications of an STD.
Can I Sue Someone Who Gave Me An STD?
In many states, it is against the law to willfully fail to disclose an STD with a sexual partner. In addition to potential criminal charges, victims can often bring civil claims. While the opposition will usually settle quickly in an attempt to keep the matter quiet, it is sometimes necessary to bring a lawsuit to enforce your legal rights.
Many of our clients wonder whether it is possible to prove what happened in these cases. Using medical testing, document discovery and investigation, we will paint a clear picture of what the opposition knew, what they disclosed and when the transmission occurred. We have succeeded in many similar cases — including a $5 million judgment secured for a client infected with herpes.
