Most sexually transmitted diseases have serious consequences. Partners are often exposed due to lack of protection, and with no warning. Due to the implications, it may be possible to file a legal claim for damages. When an individual knowingly infects their partner with an STD, it is against the law. If they did not disclose they had an STD, they can be held legally accountable. SBEMP handles these types of claims.
The Required Proof
Proving an individual liable in an STD case can be difficult, but SBEMP is familiar with these types of cases. Proving who infected the victim is important, although transmitting an STD does not automatically make the person liable. Liability can be proven if it is ascertained the individual was aware of their condition, participated in intercourse, and withheld the information from their partner. SBEMP commits themselves to client confidentiality, and providing compassionate counsel.
