Practitioners of alternative medicine, cosmeticians and sports coaches/trainers are also exposed to malpractice claims by their patients and clients.
Professional Liability Insurance is therefore essential, and it is best placed with Madanes. Protected by this particular insurance, professionals can carry on with their work without being concerned about lawsuits. The insurance provides liability cover up to the limits agreed with the insurance company as stated in the policy. It covers the insured ’s legal liability arising out of a breach of professional duty, negligence, or any error or omission made in good faith by the insured in the course of practicing his insured profession.

Life Insurance is a source of income after we reach the age of retirement, and also provides financial protection in the event of a loss of income arising from calamitous events, such as death, disability or serious illness.
The rise in life expectancy is one of the characteristic signs of the twenty-first century. In order to ensure quality of life in the additional years following retirement, we must ensure that we have suitable sources of income to make these the golden years. If we fail to take steps in good time to provide alternative sources of income, we will be forced to lower our standard of living.

MCI, a subsidiary of the Madanes Group, has received power of attorney from the insurers to manage claims filed against the insured for professional liability that is covered in the policy.
MCI provides claims management services and legal advice in the field of medical malpractice liability, and for this purpose it employs a professional and skilled team of lawyers, who provide the insured with legal services including guidance, advice and legal representation at the committees of inquiry and investigation of medical institutions and the Ministry of Health, in disciplinary and criminal proceedings, in connection with the insured’s medical occupation. In addition, a professional and experienced multi-disciplinary team is at the insured’s service for ongoing advice on medico-legal matters.
The philosophy of MCI is that effective claims management, together with proper financial estimates, based on experience and knowledge accumulated over many years, are the basis for correct decisions in cases where a quick settlement is required, in order to save further expense, to relieve the suffering of claimants, and to protect the reputation of the defendants.
MRM, The Medical Risk Management Company, a subsidiary of the Madanes Group, was established to help insured parties to develop risk management systems and programs, in order to minimize the risk of injury to patients, leading to medical malpractice suits.
In the early 1990s, exactly like in the United States in the mid-1970s, there was a crisis in Israel in the field of claims of medical malpractice and attitudes to the medical system as a whole. In the USA, this crisis led to the development of risk management programs in medical institutions, with the encouragement of insurance companies and medical inspection authorities. The crisis in Israel led Madanes to include in its policies for medical institutions a requirement that they establish risk management systems.
The philosophy underlying the activities of the Medical Risk Management Company is that reducing the risk of causing injury to patients during medical treatment is to the benefit of everyone concerned – patients, insured and insurers. The company operates in close collaboration with the insured’s own risk management teams, to achieve their common goals.

The Law of Product Liability (1980) is a law that was enacted in order to compensate a person who purchased a damaged good and was physically hearth by this product as a result of using it.
According to the Law of Product Liability (1980), any manufacturer or importer, marketer, handler, installer / supplier, or seller of products, even a person who package a products, whether for an whole product or for a component or parts of a product, are liable to damage caused by the use of the product. This liability applies under the in Israel and anywhere else in the world. If the products are marketed abroad, it is very important to adapt the policy to appropriate territorial boundaries and jurisdictions.
Even product on-line sellers who market on the Internet are committed by most platforms to conduct product liability insurance.
This liability can be protected by a product liability insurance policy that provides an insurance solution and a deep pocket to be repaid (this is especially important in cases where the commercial company does not have a great deal of money or is at the beginning of its path and there is such damages in order to impede its continued activity) To be filed against him because of his responsibility for injury and / or damage to the body and / or property of any person and / or any body, including consequential damage that may be caused by a product created, treated, marketed, installed, etc.
Claims filed under this insurance are covered on the basis of claim maid, meaning that the coverage given for a claim that will be filed against the insured for the first time (and will be delivered to the insurer) is during the insurance period.
In the event that the policy is not renewed, it is possible to purchase a period of discovery or run-off period, which provides a solution for future claims from past activity until the day of termination of the policy / day of cessation of insured activity.
It is important to renew the insurance every year and to maintain continuity of coverage to avoid a situation in which the policyholder may "fall between the chairs." It is advisable, as far as possible, to renew the insurance with the same insurer.
It is possible to expand the policy to cover the restitution of products, to expand coverage for the insured's on-line sellers, to combine the insurance with additional products such as third party liability insurance, professional liability and medical malpractice, if required.
