Iraq War Veterans Lawsuits in Cleveland
Injured in the Iraq War? You May Be Entitled to Compensation.
Spangenberg Shibley & Liber is involved in a nationwide effort to recover compensation on behalf of those injured, disabled or killed in the Iraq War or in Afghanistan. If you or a loved one suffered mental or physical harm from the Iraq War, you may be entitled to financial compensation from the Iraq War Fund. In 1992, U.S. law passed the comprehensive Anti-Terrorism Act to protect service members injured “by reason of an act of international terrorism.” Billions of dollars have been recovered nationwide from this fund, and you may be entitled to collect as well.
The Iraq War Fund serves veterans, service members, and civilian contractor plaintiffs, especially:
- Veterans who have suffered from debilitating psychological disorders such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD);
- Veterans with permanent physical disabilities, such as paralysis;
- Those who suffered catastrophic injuries, such as blast injuries, vision loss, traumatic brain injuries, and so on; and
- Surviving family members of those killed in the Iraq War and War in Afghanistan.
Can I File an Iraq War Veterans Lawsuit?
The Iraq War Fund, under the Anti-Terrorism Act, compensates eligible service members, veterans, and military families who suffered mental and/or physical impairments as a result of Iran’s involvement in the Iraq insurgency. Those who came in contact with commonly-used devices may be eligible for compensation; these include improvised explosive devices (IED), explosively formed penetrators (EFP), and improvised rocket-assisted munitions (IRAM).
How Was Iran Involved in the Iraq Insurgency?
For many years, U.S. officials had suspicions Iran was behind the Iraq insurgency, and now there is proof that international banks funneled money into Iran’s scheme for state-sponsored acts of terrorism. In fact, multiple banks have since admitted to engaging in illegal schemes with Iran. These banks funneled money into Iran’s state-sponsored terrorism, which was a major source of injuries to U.S. service members who participated in the Iraq War and in Afghanistan.
