Hi and welcome to the site. My name is***** and I'll be providing your medical information today.

It's possible depending on the details of the situation. Here are links to articles about a $900,000 judgement against a man who gave his female partner herpes:

There may be other lawsuits similar but this one is likely the one other lawyers would look at closely to see if there could be similar grounds in your situation.

I hope this information has been helpful.
