Personal injury lawyer in Kellington

The vast majority of people realise the importance of taking adequate precautions while having sex, not only to avoid the risk or pregnancy and HIV, but also to stay safe from a whole host of other nasty sexually-transmitted diseases (STDs) that can be passed from person to person through physical contact. However, you may come across a partner who objects to using certain forms of contraception and in the heat of the moment attempts to persuade you to continue unprotected.

You may well be able to take some sort of action to avoid pregnancy in these circumstances, assuming you’re in a heterosexual relationship, but having sex without a condom could well put you at risk of contracting a range of STD’s, up to and including HIV. The symptoms of conditions such as genital warts, chlamydia and gonorrhoea are far from pleasant, so they will be something you should seek to avoid at all cost. If a potential partner tells you they have a certain condition before you have sex with them, you will only have yourself to blame if you receive a dose of something nasty after agreeing to unprotected sex.

However, if a potential partner tells you that they have a clean bill of health and you then contract an STD from them through unprotected sex, you might be able to sue them for personal injury compensation using a top-class personal injury lawyer in Killington solicitor. In some cases, the person who infected you could face criminal charges if it could be proved he or she had done so maliciously.

STDs and personal injury lawyer in Kellington

If you were to contact an STD from a sexual partner after having unprotected sex, your personal injury lawyer in Kellington might be able to secure you a pay-out if it could be proved that the person who infected you had full knowledge of their condition before you were infected. This could be quite easily established through their medical records. If the person concerned had discussed their condition with a doctor and was receiving treatment for it, there could be no argument that they did not know what they were carrying.

If you were unfortunate enough to be infected with HIV, you could be in line for a fairly substantial pay-out. Although HIV and AIDS can be effectively managed through a mix of medications, a diagnosis can be life-changing.
