About

Jonathan Davies & Co. is one of Israel’s leading medical malpractice, torts and insurance law firms, with over 38 years of experience. Jonathan Davies is the President of the Society of Medicine and Law in Israel.

The firm, which was founded by Adv. Jonathan Davies in 1988, represents victims vs. state authorities, medical institutions and private entities in liability, torts, insurance, medical law, medical malpractice claims, and general civil law litigations and representation. The firm provides legal consulting regarding Bioethics, Biotechnology and medical ethics and was involved in precedential rulings. The firm consults other law firms and represents the National Insurance Institution in subrogation claims against insurance companies. Since 2020 at the heat of the Covid-19 pandemic the firm filed 70 different medical malpractice claims many of them on behalf of parents who adopted children that were adopted from foster homes in East European countries. The children suffer from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome Disorder (FASD). These are unprecedented claims arguing for ‘wrongful adoption’ and going to set a legal, medical and social precedent. The individual tort claims have an international impact on adoption.

Jonathan Davies was nominated as the Executive Committee of WAML and Secretary General (SG) of WAML. The organization acts in collaboration with other leading organizations such as WHO (World Health Organization) and ICC (International Criminal Court in the Hague).

Legal Precedents

The firm set numerous precedents in the Supreme Court and the National Labor Court during its three decades of operations, and led to numerous binding precedents that serve as pillars of Israeli medical law, including a ruling of the Supreme Court President Shamgar that regulates disclosure obligations of insurers to the insured, a patient rights’ ruling which determines that a lack of sufficient experience of an Israeli doctor justifies funding surgery abroad, a ruling concerning the relative deduction of benefits from tort compensations, and a ruling concerning wrongful birth, that served as a basis for a binding precedent of the Supreme. The firm aims to reformulate the patient-medical-staff relationship, thus it exposes the behind-the-scene dynamics of hospitals and fights for the right of patients to know of such dynamics. Additional precedents include rulings concerning patients’ rights under the National Health Insurance Law, medical malpractice in various medical fields, obstetrics complications, surgery complications, misdiagnosis, medication and prescription errors, insurance and tort claims, chemicals/radiation exposure torts, accidents, and medical experts.

Innovative Projects

The firm’s commitment to defend medical malpractice victims leads to an implementation of its accumulated knowledge in two innovative projects, aimed at implementing their rights, and supporting them, and reducing the high costs that are involved, and is involved in innovative tools that help victims fund medical opinions. The firm is handling a magnitude claim on behalf of 45 parents and children that were adopted from East European countries that suffer from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome.
