Medical Evidence in the Israeli Labor Courts: Court-Appointed Expert Medical Advisors

  • S. Adler
Part of the Medicolegal Library book series (MEDICOLEGAL, volume 7)


The admission of medical evidence in courts, such as medical papers and doctors’ testimony, is normally governed by the law, the regulations and rules of evidence and procedure. Such evidence is usually submitted to prove the connection between an event and the claimant’s medical condition. In Israel this subject has been especially developed in the Labor Courts. Of special interest is the procedure, developed in the Labor Courts, of court-appointed medical expert advisors, which replaced the procedure whereby medical experts testify for each side.
