About Tomer Bechar, Law Firm
Tomer Bechar, Law Firm has been one of Israel’s leading and longstanding medical malpractice, torts and insurance law firms for almost six decades. The firm has been involved in legal cases that influenced Israel’s entire torts fields and its development.
The firm specializes in medical malpractice, workplace accidents, road accidents, and insurance claims, with an emphasis on expertise in long-term care, work disability and accident disability insurance, National Insurance, exercising rights, and medical committee.
The firm was established by the Late Adv. Albert Bechar in 1961, and has been managed for almost 20 years by his son, Adv. Tomer Bechar. Throughout its 57 years of practice, and in particular after Adv. Tomer Bechar took its leadership role, the firm expanded and its clientele grew, and in light of the increase in the scope of its operations, the firm was incorporated as a law company in 2009.
The firm recorded numerous precedents in Israel’s torts case law, inter alia, on the topics of road accidents, workplace accidents, medical malpractice, National Insurance claims and claims against the Ministry of Defense. Since the firm’s establishment until today, large-sum compensations were awarded to its thousands of clients in all types of medical malpractice and accidents cases.
The firm has a cooperation with Israel’s best medical specialists, who provide opinions for its clients’ cases. In addition, the firm maintains direct and ongoing relationships also with experts from other fields, including safety experts, private detectives, actuaries and accounting advisors, who provide onsite reviews of accident sites and professional opinions.
The firm’s founder, the Late Adv. Albert Bechar, served for a long time as a judge in the Israeli Bar Association’s Disciplinary Court, and was an active member of several of its committees, including the National Ethics, Torts, and National Insurance committees and the Medical Malpractice Forum.
Comprehensive Legal Services for Plaintiffs Only
The firm sees service as a supreme value, and devotedly upholds the clients’ benefit above everything else. Since the firm represents only private plaintiffs and not insurance companies, its clients benefit from the added value of its expertise, as there is never a conflict-of-interests-risk. The firm’s unique strength stems from handling the full spectrum of bodily harm claims. The firm employs lawyers with expertise in numerous and diverse subfields and can therefore provide clients with a comprehensive service that encompasses almost all of their needs. In order to make its high-quality legal services accessible to the clients, the firm doesn’t charge fees for the initial meeting. In addition, the firm fees are collected as a percentage of the compensation sum to be received, so that the payment is usually made after the compensation is received. The firm takes care to maintain this important principle in order to make it significantly easier for its clients.
The firm works with non-profits and lectures at their request on how to exercise medical rights vis-a-vis National insurance and insurance companies.
The firm provides its clients with first-class legal services concerning medical malpractice in childbirth, obstetrics, cancer, plastic surgery and other medical fields, as well as medical-product defects claims. The firm specializes in medical malpractice lawsuits following physical and/or psychological trauma, that resulted from negligent and unsuccessful medical treatment. Medical malpractice is the deviation of the medical entity from the professional medical treatment norms, as was customary at the time of the trauma.
The firm provides legal counsel and services for three different types of possible workplace injuries: workplace accidents, occupational illnesses, including illnesses that were caused by physical and mechanical factors such as hearing loss, tinnitus, leukemia, melanoma, etc. In addition, bio-hazard related illnesses, such as brucellosis, anthrax and folio, diseases caused by exposure to chemicals such as asbestos, silicon and allergies.
