Throughout California, the amount of sexually transmitted disease (STD) cases is on the rise. Even though STD education has become common and accessible to anyone, individuals are still engaging in sexual contact with others while knowingly having herpes and other STDs.
In our state, it is illegal (charged as a criminal misdemeanor) for anyone to have intimate contact without telling his or her partner of the infection. If you have been infected with herpes by a partner who was infected and failed to disclose the information to you, I can help.

If Someone Gave Me Herpes, Is It Possible to Sue and Win?
If you have discovered that you have herpes and believe that you acquired the virus due to a sexual partner’s failure to disclose his or her infection status, it is possible to file a lawsuit and win. I have done so on behalf of numerous clients.
We can take anything the defendant said to you, such as referring to any inability to ever prove that you got herpes from that person or that you sleep around too much to tell who you got it from, and use them in court. These statements are untrue and just another way of shaming the victim into silence. Do not be intimidated. I can help you understand your real rights and how to hold the negligent person responsible for giving you an STD that they knowingly had.
