Iraq War Veteran and Contractor Litigation

United States military service members, retired or honorably discharged veterans, and even contractors retained by the U.S. government may have a legal right to file claims against foreign banks and financial organizations that have illegally financed Iran’s acts of state-sponsored terrorism.

Multiple banks have already admitted to engaging in criminal conspiracies with Iran to provide Iran with billions of U.S. dollars in violation of U.S. and international laws. The banks engaged in this conduct despite knowing that Iran was a “State Sponsor of Terrorism” and a major source of injuries to Americans in the Iraq War and in Afghanistan.

Some of the banks implicated in U.S. Anti-Terrorist Act lawsuits are:

  • Barclays PLC
  • BNP Paribas S.A.
  • Commerzbank A.G.
  • Crédit Suisse AG & Crédit Suisse Asset Management Limited
  • HSBC Holding Group PLC
  • Standard Chartered Bank PLC

The funds granted to Iran through these and other banks allowed Iran to pay rewards to terrorist groups for attacking United States and other coalition forces. These efforts helped facilitate terrorist attacks from 2003 to 2011 and were a significant cause of injury and death to Americans.

Veterans’ Crisis Line for PTSD and Depression

Many United States military veterans have experienced permanent mental disability or trauma after serving time in Iraq and Afghanistan and suffering a physical injury. The likelihood of a military veteran experiencing some sort of psychological harm after being hurt during active duty service is greater than the likelihood he or she will not. Depression and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are the two leading forms of mental trauma military service members develop due to being wounded, with those who have been in particularly violent combat or being near explosive ordinance experiencing complications and conditions the most. If you believe you are suffering from depression or PTSD after being injured in active service, please speak to a trusted practitioner for help as soon as possible.

Five common symptoms of PTSD and depression are:

  1. Losing all hope or ambition for the future.
  2. Uncharacteristic mood swings, especially those involving anger.
  3. Dependency on alcohol or drugs.
  4. Reclusiveness, refusal to leave the home, and general seclusion.
  5. Suicidal thoughts or self-harming behaviors.
