Prominent Cases from the Past Year

Representing an engineer who was sued by the estate of deceased person: A case where the firm represented an engineer who worked on the project of paving a road in a local council in southern Israel and a young passerby who entered the project’s area, fell into an unfenced hole and died. The deceased’s estate sued the engineer and other defendants in the claim for damages amounting to NIS 2,500,000. The insurance company that insured the engineer renounced its insurance liability in accordance with the terms of the policy. The lawyer who represented the engineer proved that the latter was not negligent at all under the accident’s circumstances. In addition, the firm proved vis-à-vis the insurance company of the engineer that there is an insurance coverage under the policy and in the framework of a settlement agreement the engineer paid only the NIS 10,000 deductible.
Representing a work manager in a packaging factory who suffered a severe workplace accident: The firm’s client was required to check a new machine that was introduced to the packaging factory where he worked and while he was inside it the machine was turned on. As a result, his aorta was ruptured and he was left with a high level of medical disability – 80%. The firm filed a bodily harm tort lawsuit against the employer in the sum of NIS 3,000,000 beyond the compensations that were received from the National Insurance Institute. The case is still being litigated in the Beersheba District Court.
Representing a project manager who had a road accident: A case where the firm represented a project manager in a lighting company, who stopped in a gas station on his way to work and when he got off the car, he twisted his leg and suffered a severe knee injury. The insurance company denied the existence of the road accident on the basis of medical records where the plaintiff complained of falling during his work without mentioning the car as the cause of the injury. In the summation stage the insurance company reconsidered its claim that this wasn’t a road accident and the court ruled that the plaintiff would receive NIS 350,000 as damages in addition to NIS 500,000 from the National Insurance Institute, for total damages of NIS 850,000.
Representing a person who sued his lawyer for professional negligence: a case where the firm is representing the owner of a luxury jewelry company who provided a loan in the sum of NIS 2M to a well-known contractor. As a guarantee for the loan the borrower pledged agricultural land. The borrower defaulted, and the plaintiff liquidated the land in a receivership proceeding with the help of a lawyer who was appointed to be the land’s receiver. There was a fault in the land sale proceeding, which forced the plaintiff to pay NIS 200,000 of the proceedings to the ILA. The lawsuit is an economic damages lawsuit on grounds of professional negligence of the lawyer. The lawsuit was filed in the sum of about NIS 550,000.

Recent occurrences suggest that the barriers to securing broad patent protection in the US have increased. Innovative companies should develop and practice proper patent strategies ensuring that they receive the proper exclusionary patent protection that antibody-related innovations deserve.
