Title: Suing someone that gave you hepatitis B
Post by: Iliaccrest on May 27, 2021, 02:24:09 am
Hi All,

I used this forum when I was first diagnosed with hep B.I would like to say thank you for the support and information it has provided.

I have now "cleared" my infection even though it never goes away... more like in remission.

I got my infection from an ex partner (sexual transmission). After contracting it from him he refused to get tested and treated me extremely badly when I was diagnosed. He made me feel like I should be grateful that he was sticking by me. Often shouting me down when I asked questions and suggesting that I could of infact ruined his life etc.
Basically gaslighting me and denying me the chance of knowing what is going on with my body and why before I really knew anything about this infection.
he even faked documents to make it look like he never had it.

I have just found out you can sue someone for giving an infection to you and I am not sure how I feel about it.

I was wondering if anyone has sued someone for giving them an infection?

I guess I am conflicted with the fact of punishing someone for having a disease just because he was a shit person. Perhaps he didn't know he had it before giving it to me?

Having this illness I understand how complex it is but it also took a toll on my life. Mentally, finacially etc and someone else did that to me with no support. Infact they added to the stress and confusion.

I know this is somewhat personal but would be interested to know others thoughts and if they have been through the court process and how stressful that was.

Sorry if this is in the wrong part of the forum.
