Flight-Related Heart Attack Leads to Lifetime Disability Allowance for Israeli Worker

Work Accident Recognition for High-Tech Employee’s Heart Attack During Connection Flights

The plaintiff in this case had a preexisting heart problem and failed to seek medical treatment during a flight-related heart attack, which resulted in him waiting hours for medical attention after landing in Israel. Despite objections from the National Insurance Institute, a court-appointed medical expert confirmed a causal link between the heart attack and the flight, ruling it a work accident.

Following the ruling, the medical committee determined the plaintiff’s disability rating and entitlement to a lifetime disability allowance. However, the National Insurance Institute emphasized the social purpose of disability benefits and questioned the connection between the plaintiff’s job-related travel and the heart attack, pointing out his failure to seek timely medical treatment.
