I was dating a man who didn't disclose to me that he was hsv (Herpes Simplex Virus) positive. We slept together & he went on vacation. During that time (about 11 days) I developed a (genital) primary outbreak & went to the Dr to get a swab / blood test. My blood test came back negative (as it was a primary outbreak & my body hadn't built up antibodies yet (with no antibodies, you produce a negative result) I was given a prescription for antivirals & started the course.
When the guy I was seeing came back from vacation, I mentioned to him that he may have passed something along to me, he apologized that I was in pain but denied having anything to do with my 'issue' which didn't seem right because he was the only person I'd been intimate with & he was denying having anything.
Suspicious that he wasn't telling the truth, I went into the bathroom, looked in his travel kit & I found a topical antiviral ointment for cold sores (oral hsv) just not sure of which strain of the virus he had as hsv can be type 1 or 2 located on the mouth or genitals.
He got angry with me & told me he'd disclosed having hsv when he clearly hadn't. Advice? as he's still denying transmitting to me.
U could probably file simple assault charges against him. U may also sue him civilly for any medical expenses. Usually have up to 3 yrs
You should contact your local police department if you want to bring a complaint. It could be simple assault, or it could be something more serious depending on the nature of your injuries. I am not clear on why you listed this under DUI, but in any event, that's what I would suggest. Unless this man has significant resources or assets, I think suing him would be a waster of time. You should probably consult with an attorney to get a better grasp on the facts. Sorry that this happened to you. Good luck.
The response I have provided is general in nature, and does not create an attorney-client relationship. My practice is based in Rhode Island, and the law and practice in other states or jurisdictions may be different.
