What to Do if You Get an STD from an NFL Player

HPV Herpes or HIV from NFL Player

What should you do if you get an STD from an NFL player in Los Angeles or anywhere in California?  It may not just be a member of the LA Rams or the Chargers, it could have been a visiting team or a member of the San Francisco 49ers or the Oakland Raiders.  It can be hard to believe that an NFL player would share intimate contact with you without telling you in advance he was carrying an STD.  California law requires anyone with an STD such as herpes, HPV or HIV to warn potential intimate partners in advance of contact.  It is possible to get an STD from an NFL player and hold them financially accountable for what has happened.

Dog Bite Attorney Mission Viejo

Are you wondering who pays for dog bite injuries in Mission Viejo and throughout Southern California if you, your child or a loved one is attacked by a dog?  Dog bite injuries are covered by the pet owner’s homeowners or renters insurance.  In California, pet owners are “strictly liable” for the actions of the pet.  This applies in almost every situation which results in a dog bite with injuries.  Dog bite injuries are quite severe.  They are not “clean” cuts but more puncture and tearing wounds.  This unfortunately leads to two major challenges: infection and scarring. Infection is actually one of the most significant risks in a dog bite which pierces the skin.  The old saying “there is no place cleaner than a dog’s mouth” or “a dog’s mouth is cleaner than a humans” are simply untrue.  Pasteurellosis is a serious infection which will spread from dog bite and puncture
