Los Angeles AIDs Claim Lawyer
Helpful Counsel & Aggressive Advocacy for Victims in Southern California
The human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is an STD that can eventually lead to AIDS, or acquired immune deficiency syndrome. HIV is a virus that gradually attacks and destroys the body’s immune system, and when the immune system has been sufficiently damaged to the point that the body can’t fight infections or viruses, the condition progresses to full-blown AIDS.
Someone who transmits HIV to sexual partners is committing a very serious offense. AIDS is a life-threatening condition that requires highly specialized medical care. If someone knows they have HIV and has intercourse with a partner without informing them, you can file an HIV or AIDS claim against them.
While a lawsuit may seem like added stress to an already difficult situation, the compensation you receive can help you cover the medical expenses needed to treat the condition. It is also important to hold the person responsible so that they do not continue spreading the virus to others.
Signs That HIV Has Progressed to AIDS
AIDS is the most advanced stage of HIV. It is possible to prevent AIDS if HIV is diagnosed early enough, but some people will not notice the symptoms until it is too late. It typically takes 10 to 15 years for HIV to progress to AIDS, so there is ample time to get tested, but you should never take chances when the symptoms occur.
Warning signs for AIDS include:
- Unexplained weight loss
- Memory loss
- Falling unconscious
- Mouth and genital sores
- Diarrhea that lasts for more than a week
- Recurring fevers
These are late-stage HIV symptoms, which means it may be too late to prevent AIDS. No matter if you are in the HIV or AIDS stage of the disease, you deserve justice for the thoughtless crime of its initial transmission.
