The powerful few have silenced the powerless many for generations. It continues today, in more ways than many people realize.
When a rich and powerful person transmits an STD to another, and did not perform their due diligence in preventing this from happening, the victim may be left feeling scared, vulnerable, and voiceless.
They may be afraid to pursue justice against these individuals for fear of repercussions.
If you’re experiencing something similar, know you aren’t alone, and you aren’t voiceless. You have a voice, you have rights, and we’re here to help you in the wake of an unexpected STD transmission from a sexual partner.
Fighting For Your Rights After an STD Transmission
Herpes is one of the most common STDs, with more than 16% of the United States population infected with the virus. It’s also one of the most difficult to detect, as hosts can shed the virus without displaying any noticeable symptoms.
This is why it’s vitally important (and legally required) for individuals with herpes to disclose their condition to their sexual partner before any sexual activity occurs.
When they fail in this duty, and you’re infected with herpes as a result, you may sue your sexual partner for damages including medical bills and emotional suffering.
With the help of an experienced attorney, you can work to prove the other person’s liability in failing to disclose their infection to you before sexual activity occurred. At KMD Law, we’re meticulous in both fighting for your rights and protecting your privacy. We know the emotional turmoil you’re going through, and we’re here to help you through this process as successfully as possible.
We have helped countless individuals who went through a similar situation, and we’re here to hold the rich and powerful accountable for their actions.
