How and When You Test Will Make A Big Difference in the Success of Your STD Case
One of the most important reasons to speak with Rivers Morrell for a free, confidential and private consultation at (949) 305-1400 is that timing and the strategy of testing is very important in any wrongful STD transmission case.
For example, only 50% of those tested returned a positive test result for herpes after three weeks.
After six weeks from the transmission, over 70% of those tested returned an accurate positive result for the presence of herpes.
The same test is 92% accurate for those who have herpes and other STDs if they wait 12 weeks from the point of transmission before being tested.
Most doctors will only order an IgG Immunoglobulin test. While IgG is a valuable and important test it only confirms the presence of infection. We work with our clients to make sure they also ask for an IgM test. The Immunoglobulin IgM is primarily found in the blood and lymph systems of our body. IgM is the first antibody our systems create when we encounter a new infection.
IgM will usually test positive earlier than IgG and eventually fades. A positive IgM test can help prove the test is recent (helps to establish who transmitted the STD to you).
The bottom line is this: if you test to early you might get an incorrect “negative” result. If you wait too long, you might miss the IgM window which helps us to prove recency. It is important to show what appears to be a “false” early test for herpes which shows positive for IgM followed by a later test which confirms the presence of herpes. This provides strong evidence and can result in a highly successful outcome in your case.

The legal statute of limitations in these cases is short, and starts at the time you became aware that you have herpes. It is important to act immediately to preserve evidence, and to hold the person who gave you this STD responsible. There is no cost to you out of pocket, as I work on a contingency fee basis.
We will keep this extremely private and hold the athlete, celebrity, professional or business person accountable for giving you a sexually transmitted disease that you will have to manage for the foreseeable future. You will speak with me personally and privately.
