EFP Roadside Bomb Injury Lawsuits
You may have a claim against banks that illegally funded terrorism
U.S. military servicemembers and contractors harmed by Iranian-backed terrorist devices, such as explosively formed penetrators or projectiles (EFPs), may have a personal injury cause of action against the banks who facilitated the attacks by laundering money for Iran. Families of people killed in terrorist attacks may also sue for wrongful death. A number of banks have already pled guilty or reached a settlement, requiring them to make substantial contributions to the Iraq & Afghan War Fund, a pool of compensation for eligible victims. At Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, we want to help you and your family obtain the maximum amount of compensation possible for your financial losses, your pain and suffering, and your loss of quality of life.
Who may file an EFP lawsuit?
To make a claim, we must obtain a federal court judgment by proving a causal connection between the bank’s malfeasance and your injury or your loved one’s wrongful death. It has already been proven that the banks funneled cash to Iran and that Iran sent terrorist devices and enabled them to be produced in Iraq, Afghanistan and other areas where the war on terror was waged. So, all we must prove is that your injury occurred from 2004 forward and was caused by an Iranian-linked device. These devices may include:
- IEDs — Improvised explosive devices
- EFPs — Explosively formed penetrators
- RPGs — Rocket-propelled grenades
- IRAMs — Improvised rocket-assisted munitions
These sophisticated devices, their parts, and instructions were imported into Afghanistan and Iraq to kill American and coalition forces and terrorize the communities that were cooperating with the war effort. Now, the banks that financed these operations are being held accountable.
In addition to the injured veteran, the children and widows of vets killed by these explosive devices may make a claim against the Iraq & Afghan War Fund.
Compensation for a range of catastrophic injuries and death
The effects of EFPs were and continue to be devastating for Americans in the combat zone. At Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban, we want to see you fully compensated for the harm you suffered from a blast injury, including:
- Loss of life of a loved one
- Suicide of a loved one due to EFP-related mental impairment
- Loss of limbs or amputation
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury and paralysis
- Loss of vision
- Blast injuries, shrapnel wounds and scars
- Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
The Iraq & Afghan War Fund is not open to all casualties of war — only to those who can prove by a preponderance of the evidence that an Iranian-backed terror device caused their injury. This type of case is not easy to make, so you must retain a capable veterans attorney with knowledge of service-related injuries. Our attorneys have more than 200 years of combined experience with both personal injury cases, and veterans’ disability cases throughout the country. We have the skill and determination to fight for you.
Relationship between IED/EFP Roadside Bomb and VA disability benefits
Lawsuits seeking payment under the Iraq & Afghan War Fund are completely separate from VA disability benefits. Even if you are not receiving VA disability benefits, you may still file an IED/EFP roadside bomb lawsuit. Filing the IED/EFP will not affect your disability claim.
However, if you were injured by a blast in Iraq or Afghanistan, you may also be entitled to VA disability benefits. If you have been denied such a claim, we may be able to help you get the benefits you deserve.
