A deadly form of roadside bomb, known as explosively formed penetrators (EFPs), put U.S. military service members and contractors at increased risk each and every day while they were bravely serving their country overseas. We now know that enemy forces would not have been able to manufacture these deadly explosive devices without the aid of certain international banks that masked wire transactions to help fund terrorist groups.
If you were injured, or someone you know was killed by an explosive device in Iraq or Afghanistan, you may be eligible for compensation. Contact The Carlson Law Firm today to schedule your free case evaluation.
Whereas most roadside bombs send energy and shrapnel in all directions, EFPs work more like cannons. EFPs detonate with a force capable of traveling more than a mile per second and can breach tank armor 300 feet away. The devices are fashioned from commonplace items, including steel, PVC pipe, and explosives and are sealed with a copper disk. The device shoots out fist-sized wads of nearly-molten copper that can penetrate the armor on an Abrams tank.
To date, nine foreign banks have admitted to entering into criminal conspiracies with Iran to provide it 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. The Anti Terrorism Act allows plaintiffs to hold accountable organizations in conspiracies that supported the international terrorism and sue them in U.S. federal courts for monetary damages.
