If an individual is infected with a sexually transmitted disease (STD) or virus, such as HIV or AIDS, they must inform any sexual partner of their STD and infectious status prior to having intimate contact or sex. Withholding this information can lead to a multitude of civil claims including, fraud, battery, and violations of health and safety codes. Even if you are not directly infected with a disease, there are potential claims for emotional distress if you are exposed to an STD or virus by a sexual partner. These claims could be very severe due to the high fear of contracting a very debilitating and life long virus such as HIV or AIDS.
These cases require the responsible partner to have some financial substance. For example, if your partner owns a business, is a professional athlete actor or celebrity, a doctor, clergy or a trusted professional such as a college professor we can help you to hold them accountable for STD transmission.

If you believe that you have been exposed to any sexual transmitted viruses, and were not properly informed by your partner(s), please contact our office or call to speak with Rivers Morrell personally for a free, private and confidential consultation at (949) 305-1400.
