Can you file a lawsuit against Iran or another State Sponsor of Terrorism for an injury suffered in an IED attacks and other terrorist attacks?
Yes, anti-terrorism laws allow terror attack victims and their families to seek compensation from the State Sponsor of Terrorism and the conspiring banks that enabled their funding. If you are a veteran or a surviving family member of a veteran who suffered an IED attack or other terrorist attack, you very well may be eligible for an anti-terrorism lawsuit against Iran and any funding banks.
Who qualifies for compensation?
1. US citizens injured in Iraq (or in some cases Afghanistan) who were on active duty, reserve status, or working as independent contractors,
2. Individuals, or surviving family members of deceased individuals, who was injured or killed caused by terrorist-based explosive devices, or other explosives in the vicinity of central Iraq during the Iraq War between 2003 and 2011 including:
(NOTE: injuries and/or deaths in Afghanistan may also be accepted)
3. Accepted injuries include:
NOTE: this list is not exhaustive, and other injuries may be accepted.
Iran is classified as a State Sponsor of Terrorism. This rouge nation was the inspiration for several different types of Anti-terrorism legislation.
Despite these anti-terrorism laws, which sought to constrain Iran, they continued to directly impact our troops through IED attacks and other terrorist attacks. In 2011, Adm. Mike Mullen, the then-Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff stated that “Iran is very directly supporting extremist Shia groups, which are killing our troops.”
“They are shipping high-tech weapons in there — RAMS, EFPs — which are killing our people and the forensics can prove that,” Mullen said. “From my perspective, that has to be dealt with, not just now because it is killing our people, but obviously in the future as well.”
The Iran produced weapons that are most commonly used against our military is the EFP. EFPs are “Explosively Formed Penetrators”, a shaped charge designed to penetrate armor, which could pierce the armor of American tanks and Armored Personnel Carriers. These weapons were first used by the Iranian backed militia Hezbollah against Israeli forces, and subsequently the identical EFPs began appearing in Iraq in 2004. In 2006 the British newspaper The Telegraph reported that these sophisticated and lethal bombs, which were used against Iraq war veterans, were being mass produced by three factories in Iran.
The Telegraph quotes Alireza Jafarzadeh, a member of an Iranian exile group called the National Council for Resistance in Iran, as stating “This is not a ragtag workshop in some remote area. These sites are within an area that is one of the most sanitized parts of Teheran which is controlled by the Iranian Defense Ministry.”
The overwhelming evidence cited in these articles and countless others makes it clear that as a state sponsor of terror, Iran is civilly liable in an anti-terrorism lawsuit.
