Most people are unaware that there are legal courses of action for the knowing transmission of a sexually transmitted disease or STD without warning in the state of California. For instance, if a boyfriend knowingly conceals the fact that he has Genital Herpes or HPV and transmits this to his girlfriend, the girlfriend has a legal right to hold him accountable. Many people are ashamed to bring these types of lawsuits, but we have successfully completed many of these cases. In some instances, the damages could be high.
Financial damages in STD transmission cases can consist of medical treatments required as a result of the infection, the pain and suffering sustained as a result of the shame of having an incurable disease, and the future pain and suffering as a result of carrying this lifelong infection (in the case of Genital Herpes, HPV or HIV). Financial compensation in these cases can be substantial, due to the permanent nature of certain STD’s and the impact upon your personal life.
