• Cleveland Brain Injury Attorney: Could Brain Injured Military Members Sue the State of Iran?

    Posted on May 31st, 2020 admin No comments

    Could it be possible to hire a brain injury attorney to sue Iran? That’s an interesting question for a brain injury attorney in Cleveland.

    One could certainly make the case that Iran is responsible for a great deal of brain injury when it comes to US service members following that country’s January 2020 attack on an al-Asad airbase in Iraq.

    The Guardian reports:

    “The (Pentagon) said 109 military members had been treated for mild TBI, a significant increase over the 64 reported a little over a week ago.

    “The number of injuries has been steadily increasing since the Pentagon began releasing data on the injuries about a week after the 8 January attack at the al-Asad airbase in Iraq.

    “Pentagon officials have warned that the number will continue to change.”

    “The department said 76 of the service members have returned to duty, while 26 are in Germany or the United States for treatment, and another seven are on their way from Iraq to Germany for evaluation and treatment.”

    Granted, the attack was an act of war, so the strength of how that case could play out in a courtroom could be questionable.

    Nevertheless, Iran has been sued before and been forced to pay. Journalist Terry Anderson successfully sued the State of Iran after the country was found liable for his kidnapping. He received millions in frozen Iranian assets after a U.S. court found Tehran culpable of funding his kidnapping.
