Have any Banks Been Held Liable for U.S. Military Injuries
As of this time, several banks have admitted to entering into criminal conspiracies with Iran to provide the country with billions of dollars in violation of U.S. and international laws, all while knowing Iran was a “State Sponsor of Terrorism” and a leading source of American injuries and casualties in the Iraq War and Afghanistan.
Iran used the cash to pay rewards to terrorists attacking U.S. and coalition forces. By conspiring with Iran, the following banks helped facilitate the attacks responsible for the majority of U.S. casualties in Iraq between 2003 and 2011.
- Barclays Plc.
- BNP Paribas S.A.
- Commerzbank A.G.
- Crédit Suisse AG and Crédit Suisse Asset Management Limited
- HSBC Holding Group Plc.
- Standard Chartered Bank Plc.
Who is Entitled to Bring a Claim
U.S. veterans, service members, and civilian contractors who were injured or killed between 2003 and 2011 by Iranian-sponsored terrorism are entitled to seek compensation.
Potential claimants also include families, survivors, and dependents of veterans and contractors.
What is the U.S. Anti-Terrorism Act
The United States Anti-Terrorism Act provides that any U.S. citizen or his/her survivors may file a lawsuit for injuries caused by an act of international terrorism. The law makes it a crime to for anyone to knowingly provide material support or resources to designated foreign terrorist organizations.
In enacting this law, Congress recognized “that some foreign terrorist organizations, acting through affiliated groups or individuals, raise significant funds within the United States, or use the United States as a conduit for the receipt of funds raised in other nations.”
Getting Help for Depression and PTSD
It's extremely common for military veterans to experience severe depression and post-traumatic stress disorder upon returning to the United States from active duty service, especially those engaged in combat activity.
Symptoms most often include: (1) a feeling of hopelessness and seeing no reason to live; (2) anxiety, anger, rage, sleeplessness and mood swings; (3) increased alcohol or drug use; (4) withdrawing from family and friends; and (5) thoughts of hurting yourself or others.
