Fields Of Activity
The Torts Department handles diverse torts cases and specializes in administration of inimitable torts claims including against government authorities.
Furthermore the department represents the Ayalon Insurance Company for bodily damage claims and liabilities. The department’s attorneys represent many private claimants in claims for road accidents, claims against the National Insurance Institute (work accidents and more), claims against the Ministry of Defence (Benefits Officer), claims for medical negligence, claims for damage to property, claims on insurance policies and more.
One of the cases that received considerable media coverage in this field was the success of the Amram family, who were represented by our office, in a precedential torts claim against the Israel Police for non-prevention of the death of Inbal Amram of blessed memory. The Court accepted the claim and ruled that it was possible to save Inbal of blessed memory and that the Police were negligent by not preventing her death.
Furthermore our office has acquired considerable experience in claims against the Forensic Medical Centre relating to “the organs affair”. During recent years our office has represented many bereaved families who are conducting a legal battle against the Forensic Medical Centre and Prof. Yehuda Hiss for keeping organ parts of their loved ones who have passed away at the Centre, without the families’ knowledge. In this field too our offices has achieved not insignificant successes and the legal and public battle is still continuing.
