Hagens Berman Announces Legal Aid for American Victims of Hamas Terrorism as Israel-Hamas War Continues
SEATTLE — Attorneys at Hagens Berman are investigating human rights and anti-terrorism legal claims on behalf of U.S. citizens impacted by the October 2023 attack on Israel perpetrated by the terrorist group Hamas. As violence continues, the law firm urges impacted U.S. citizens to find out more about their rights immediately regarding potential claims against Hamas and its sponsors.
Following Hamas’ Oct. 7, 2023, attack, more than 1,300 Israelis have been killed in Gaza, and the death toll continues to rise, according to international news organizations. More than two dozen American citizens have been confirmed dead, and more than a dozen have been reported missing, some being held hostage by Hamas, news outlets report.
“Time is of the essence, and we hope to extend immediate legal aid to any U.S. citizens who have been impacted by Hamas’ acts of violence and terrorism,” said Steve Berman, managing partner at Hagens Berman. “The firm is fiercely committed to pursuing justice through available applications of the law.”
Hagens Berman’s anti-terrorism legal team fights on behalf of terrorism victims by suing terrorists and those that support them. According to the firm’s anti-terrorism attorneys, the firm is investigating the rights of Americans who have faced acts of torture, extrajudicial killing or hostage taking. News reports state that Hamas has taken more than 100 hostages.
The law firm has successfully brought legal claims on behalf of American victims of international terrorism, including claims for extrajudicial killing and hostage taking. In 2018, Hagens Berman represented the family of an American taken hostage and killed by the Colombian terrorist organization known as FARC (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia) and secured a $69 million judgment on behalf of the victim’s family.
