Out of all the things that randomly pop in my head, this one really made me think.

Believe it or not, people are engaging in sexual intercourse in Alabama. We can't act like it's not happening just cause it may be an uncomfortable subject.

And with adult like actions, come adult like consequences.

Pregnancy, and sometimes sexually transmitted diseases are possible consequences fro engaging in sexual intercourse.

Can You Sue Someone For Giving You HIV In Alabama?

The answer is, yes. You can absolutely sue someone for giving you HIV in Alabama but there are some stipulations.

In Alabama, intentional transmission of HIV is a criminal offense, and a person who knowingly or recklessly exposes someone else to HIV can be charged with assault.

Proving that someone intentionally or negligently infected you with HIV can be a difficult and complex legal process. It is recommended that you seek the advice and representation of a qualified attorney with experience in this area of law.

If you'd like more information on this topic you can check out the Alabama Department of Public Health, or the Alabama Code Section 22-11A-8. 

Ultimately, my suggestion is if you're engaging in grown up activity, you be as safe as possible and use protection.
