Hi thank you for your message, if you consider that he know that he had hepatitis and that he deliberately infected you then this is a criminal offence and the matter can be reported to the police. In terms of a civil case, you might be able to bring a claim on the basis he deliberately infected you but you will need a specialist personal injury lawyer and this would be both difficult and potentially expensive to pursue. I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
