Los Angeles HIV Lawsuit Attorney
You Deserve Compensation from Negligent Sexual Partners
Knowingly transmitting HIV to a sexual partner is a serious offense. Even if someone is unaware they have HIV, they can still be held accountable in the court of law if they could have reasonably discovered the disease and taken the appropriate precautions.
HIV is a serious medical condition that weakens the immune system. If not diagnosed and treated quickly enough, HIV can ruin the body’s immune system, at which point it becomes AIDS.
Learning that you have HIV is a life-changing experience. Even if you have not had intercourse in several months or years, it is possible that you contracted the disease through a sexual partner. Some people do not realize they have HIV until many years after they contracted it. At KMD Law, we can help you track down the person who gave you HIV and hold them accountable for their negligence. A successful claim will provide you with compensation that can help cover your medical bills and pain and suffering.
If you believe you have contracted HIV through a negligent sexual partner, call (833) 456-3529 today to schedule a free consultation with our dedicated HIV claim attorney.
Get Tested Immediately
It is possible to stop HIV from turning into AIDS, but only if your healthcare provider discovers it quickly enough. It takes about 10 years for HIV to become AIDS, so there is ample time to get screened. However, the sooner it is discovered, the better. You should receive an STD screening every time you have a new sexual partner. Keep in mind that if you have it and don’t realize it, you could transfer it to someone else.
Some early symptoms of HIV include:
- Rashes and sores
- Fevers and illnesses occur more frequently
- Menstrual changes
- Night sweats
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Muscle and joint pain
- Diarrhea that lasts more than a week
Some people will never experience these symptoms, but that does not mean that HIV is not present. Even patients who are asymptomatic can develop AIDS after 10 years, so make sure you get tested.
