Although genital herpes isn’t life-threatening, the pain, discomfort, and social stigma can be difficult to deal with. There is no cure for herpes, so people who carry the virus have it for life, which can lead to emotional pain, depression, and a lifetime of expensive treatments that may be ineffective at treating symptoms of the disease.
If you contracted genital herpes from a sexual partner who didn’t warn you about his or her infection, you may be entitled to compensation. At Michigan Injury Lawyers, our Michigan STD attorneys have helped many innocent victims get the money they need for their medical bills and treatments because of a partner’s negligence. Let us give your case the personal attention and confidentiality you deserve—just dial (888) 454-0801 or fill out a free initial consultation form.
Steps to Take for Building Your Claim
Filing a claim after contracting an STD such as herpes can be complicated, but there are a few steps you can take to increase your chances of a successful outcome:
- Get an STD screening
An STD screening may be able to help determine who infected you with the disease. You can get screened at a walk-in clinic or at a local family health physician.
- Prove your partner knew of his or her infection
Our legal team can investigate your partner to determine if he or she was aware of the infection and knowingly exposed you to the virus.
Taking these steps not only helps build a strong claim for compensation, but it also can help prevent or reduce the chance of the disease spreading to other people.
