Infected by an STD? You Have Rights
In the state of New York, a person with a sexually transmitted disease (STD) is obligated by law to disclose the fact prior to sexual contact.
If you were infected with herpes, HIV, or another sexually transmitted disease by someone who did not disclose that he or she was infected, you have the right to compensation.
Don’t let the embarrassment of your infection, keep you from seeking justice. The Syracuse attorneys at Levine & Blit, PLLC will protect your identity while they fight your case. Call 315-366-8055 for a consultation.
Don’t Fight this Battle Alone
New York Public Health Law §2307 states, “Any person who, knowing himself or herself to be infected with an infectious venereal disease, has sexual intercourse with another shall be guilty of a misdemeanor.” If you have been infected, you can be compensated.
However, winning an STD lawsuit isn’t easy. Not only do you open yourself up to the scrutiny of others, but you also have to prove:
- Who infected you
- That person knowingly infected you with an STD
