Between 2003 and 2011, thousands of Americans were killed or suffered injuries during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. As if this alone wasn’t tragic enough, foreign banks – a minimum of twelve, at this point – have violated the United States Anti-Terrorism Act by facilitating funds going to terrorist institutions.
Many of these banks aided Iran, a known state sponsor of terrorism, with the processing and distribution of illegal funds to various terrorist organizations. These illegal funds aided the training and deployment of terrorists whose sole purpose was to murder Americans. In addition, these illegal funds allowed for the manufacturing and placement of deadly explosive devices.
Because of this, Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans, contractors, and family members may be eligible for lawsuits under the United States Anti-Terrorism Act. Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys is here to help.
Many foreign banks have already admitted to engaging in criminal conspiracies with Iran. However, many of them also have reached settlements and aren’t being further prosecuted. This is where Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys comes in. Our attorneys aren’t afraid to take the fight to them; all eligible veterans, contractors, and family members should seek compensation. Just so you know who you’re up against, here are the companies that illegally funded state sponsored terrorism in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars:

The Devices – IED and EFP Roadside Bombs
Much of the funds provided by the aforementioned banks went toward explosive devices known as improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and explosively formed penetrators (EFPs). These bombs, provided mostly by Iran and funded by foreign banks, are easily concealed devices that are deadly to both infantry and vehicles (armored or not). EFPs especially are deadly, as the devices eject molten copper that can penetrate even the most heavily protected vehicles. EFPs are also notorious for being able to cause massive damage from a great distance. Needless to say, these IED and EFP roadside bombs were of huge concern during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Some common injuries and conditions resulting from IED and EFP roadside bombs are as follows:
- Amputation of limb(s)
- Blast/burn injuries
- Broken bones
- Mental disabilities
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Shrapnel injuries/scars
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Vision loss
If you have an injury or condition that isn’t on this list, don’t worry; this list is by no means exhaustive. You may still be eligible for compensation. Contact Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys right away for a free consultation.
