Experienced California Attorney Represents Adult Victims of Sexual Transmitted Disease (STD) by Their Sexual Partner or Adults Who Were Sexually Abused When They Were a Child

Ethical counselor files civil litigation cases for money damages to hold adults who are the victims of Sexual transmitted diseases by their sexual partner

Having consensual sexual relations with your partner should be an enjoyable experience. However, when your partner knows or should know that he or she has a STD such as genital herpes, chlamydia, gonorrhea, or many others, and does not inform you or tells you it does not matter, and the STD is transmitted to you, California law allows you to sue your partner for money damages. The law is complex in this area and requires an attorney who is aware of the law as well as an ability to listen with respect and compassion to a client discuss very private disclosures of their sexual life.

I understand how difficult it is to come forward with your story of sexual abuse. From the Law Offices of Thomas Edward Wall in Rancho Palos Verdes, I have fought to achieve civil justice for victims of sexual abuse since 1980. Focusing solely on sex abuse cases, I represent individuals in the greater Los Angeles area and throughout California. I advocate for each client with care and compassion, and I work to collect the evidence necessary to gain compensation for the harm you or a loved one has suffered. I am proud to be AV® Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell® for my high ethical standards and professional ability.

Caring California lawyer helps victims seek civil justice for sexual trauma

While California law allows victims of sexual abuse to seek damages for the infection of STD from their sexual partner, there are time limits to file the complaint for damages or you will be barred from recovering damages. You need an experienced attorney who knows what the law is and how the law applies to your individual situation.

I am the author of an article published in a major legal publication regarding the legal cases involving STD cases including the very complex California Supreme Court decision which demonstrates the complexity of such cases. I have also taken continuing education courses on STD cases including a course discussing the medical aspects of STD.

California law allows victims of childhood sexual abuse to seek damages from their abusers and other responsible parties, including any institutions that protected them, up until the victim’s twenty-sixth birthday. If you do not discover until after your twenty-sixth birthday that your pain and suffering have been caused by sexual abuse, there still may be a way to bring litigation against the offender. I build cases for individuals hurt by:

  • Sexual contact—An adult having sex with a child is never acceptable. I aggressively seek justice for victims of childhood rape.
  • Inappropriate touching—Children who are molested by adults or authority figures often experience fear and confusion. Victims should never be made to suffer in silence.
  • Child pornography—If images of you were created or shared, I will seek to make the individuals involved pay for their actions.

California law regarding adults suing for damages based on sexual abuse when they were minors, is very complex. One has to be under the care of a licensed medical professional as well as meeting other requirements. An experienced attorney, such as Thomas Edward Wall, can help you establish whether you have a valid case.

Though no amount of money can heal the emotional scars caused by abuse, financial compensation can help you obtain treatment and remedy past expenses. When you choose me as your legal representative, I will work to get you the payments you deserve.
