- The Municipality of Jerusalem
Our firm represents the Municipality of Jerusalem, as well as its insurers and reinsurers, following a disaster occurred in 2001 when the floor of “Versailles Halls” in Jerusalem collapsed during a wedding party. As a result of this occurrence, 23 people were killed, hundreds were injured and severe property damage was caused to the building and its surroundings. This is apparently the biggest claim for bodily damage ever submitted in Israel. Our firm was also instructed by the Municipality of Jerusalem to represent it in few medical malpractice claims that were submitted against it, based upon the allegation that the Municipality of Jerusalem was responsible, in the relevant times of each and every claim, to medical centers were negligent medical examinations were performed to the claimants.
