Friedman, Rodman & Frank, P.A. helps clients in Iraq and overseas navigate DBA cases involving the following bases and other areas of operation:
Some of the greatest hazards faced by workers in Iraq are the burn pits and fields. Multiple connections have been observed between the fumes of these sites and the spread of toxins and disease. Symptoms that may be a result of exposure include cancer, asthma and digestive issues.
Traumatic brain injury, or TBI, and post-traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, are two of the most common mental afflictions facing soldiers and others who have worked in Iraq. These psychological conditions are often a result of seeing disturbing events, and symptoms can include depression, insomnia and mood swings.
Combat in Iraq has resulted in thousands of deaths, and in addition to the tragic fatalities, countless have been injured in Iraq and left feeling as though they have little recourse available.
