What is Havana Syndrome?

Thank you to everyone for your overwhelming support of this litigation. Right now, we can ONLY accept cases from attacks that occurred in Cuba. We are still continuing our investigation into these attacks.

Havana Syndrome continues to be an unusually mysterious illness. When the first investigation was launched—following the incident in Cuba, US officials questioned the Cuban government as to whether they had carried out sonic attacks on American diplomats, their family members, and their staff. The Cuban government maintained they had no knowledge of the sonic attacks. Despite the fact that Havana Syndrome remains so mysterious, there is no doubt that the more than 130 people who experienced adverse health symptoms related to the incident need answers and assistance.

One case of Havana Syndrome involved an officer serving overseas who detailed being suddenly overwhelmed with a blinding headache and severe nausea as he pulled into an intersection. The officer's two year old son was in the back seat of the vehicle and immediately began crying when the officer was in the intersection. Once the officer pulled away from the intersection, his headache and nausea subsided, and the toddler stopped crying.

There has been medical research on Havana Syndrome, and a 2019 study published in the Journal of American Medical Association detailed the neurological symptoms of 40 people who were potentially exposed to Havana Syndrome. The study also found something very odd—those with Havana Syndrome symptoms had “significantly smaller” whole brain white matter volume. The white matter volume in our brains improves the speed and transmission of electrical nerve signals in the brain. The researchers also found other “significant differences” between the brains of those exposed to Havana Syndrome as compared to others with similar demographics.
