Anti-Terrorism Lawsuit in Texas
Texas is a proud home to thousands of active and retired military members and their families, and San Antonio itself is home to several military bases, boasting a large military population in and around the city. These bases include Brooks City-Base, Randolph Air Force Base, Fort Sam Houston, Lackland, and Camp Bullis. With many bases and military personnel, the lawyers of Carabin Shaw have had much experience developing and litigating a variety of military related lawsuits. One of the newest, and most important, developments in the scope of military-related law are anti-terrorism lawsuits in Texas.What is an Anti-Terrorism Lawsuit in Texas?
An anti-terrorism lawsuit in Texas seeks to compensate victims of overseas terrorism who are covered under the Anti-Terrorism Act, put into place in 1992. This act states that United States citizens that were injured “by reason of an act of international terrorism” may sue those responsible – directly or indirectly – for their injuries.
While masses of U.S. military personnel were serving overseas in the Iraq war, large casualties and injuries were reported as a result of roadside bombings and other attacks of terror. It would later be reported that these roadside bombings between 2003–2011 were funded illegally by foreign banks who conspired with Iran to funnel the money and mask transfers, all while being aware that Iran served as a state sponsor of terrorism.
This information paved the way for anti-terrorism lawsuits against these foreign banks – an opportunity for those who lost a family member or suffered injury from an attack sponsored by foreign financial institutions to gain compensation for the pain and suffering they have had to endure.
The Anti-Terrorism Act also states that family members, such as spouses, children, parents and siblings of those who have been injured by financially sponsored terrorism, may be entitled to compensation. San Antonio and its surrounding areas house thousands of active and retired military families. Anti-terrorism lawsuits in Texas give those family members and the military members injured a chance at compensation for their medical bills, injuries and other costs they have incurred from since their injury.Why You Need an Attorney
