Legal Question

Recommended Posts


It is not me but my daughter. She dated a guy. She had a break out 2 months after they started dating. I am not sure what exactly she has but it is an STD. The dated for almost 2 years. He caught whatever she had. They recently broke up and now he wants to sue for damages and who knows what else.

Question is do we need to worry about getting sued by this loser?:(

Welcome to the boards.

I would recommend talking to a lawyer.

Because this is a new topic section on the boards, there are only a few posts by someone in the opposite situation (trying to sue), but I think there are some links in those posts to info on lawsuits in different states.

But a lawyer is really your best bet.

definitely talk to a lawyer. And one that has worked with these types of cases in the past. historically, people do not sue for stds that are treatable such as clamydia, gonnerea, etc.

i am not sure how the laws are in indiana. there is an attorney on this website, tohealth. anything she has posted is great and very informative.

i am sueing my ex b/c he fraudently misrepresented his std status to me....he lied and said he was tested for everything and was clean. it turned out he was not clean and was never tested for 'everything'.

good luck, keep us posted

      Yeah and the stigma hit me pretty hard since I'm originally from Asia and we don't have sex ed or STD education so the regret and self-hating are as bad as stigma. Hoping is the only way to get me out of suicidal thoughts. I know that a lot has been done and I'm glad. I just hope they continue with the hsv research instead of abandoning it cuz it's not life-threatening and I also hope that the big pharma conspiracy isn't real.

      @Dvm, he says this to almost everyone.  Best ignore his bad advice

      Thx so much. However HSV can affect the trigeminal nerve/from post herpetic neuralgia and can actually cause all these symptoms. Some people, once affected can have short term symptoms,  while others have sporadic flare ups and some are permanently affected. Gabapentin for trigeminal neuralgia, prescribed by my neurologist, did help me for some time,  but I'm glad to be off it.  Hope my post helps someone w similar issues who havent gotten help from primary care Dr.

      @Dvm you can be assured that HSV is not the cause of these issues. As you have found, it’s likely a spinal issue and it sounds like you have found some help. Stick with that.
