Ono Hosts Scholar’s Book Launch Event on Mass Casualty Incidents
Dr. Inbal Maimon-Blau, an Ono Academic College Law School scholar will be launching her new book, “After the Flood: Compensation Mechanisms for Mass Casualty Incidents.” Dean Elad Finklestein will give introductory remarks and other speakers will include: Prof. Neta Ziv, Member of Knesset Efrat Rayten, Shay Tzarfaty (representatives of the family of the victims of the Meron disaster), and Prof. Yuval Elbashan.
Dr. Inbal Maimon-Blau is an expert regarding the legal issues connected to mass casualty events. After completing her law degree and working for ten years as an attorney, Dr. Maimon-Blau returned to academia and wrote her thesis on the struggle of patients who were injured due to receiving radiation treatment for ringworm. Her dissertation examined the more general factors that influenced the courts’ compensation awards for class action bodily injury suits in Israel. She found that factors such as the victims’ group identity and their social power have a strong effect on the size of the compensation they receive.
Dr. Maimon-Blau’s research has been widely acclaimed and she was selected as one of the most inspiring doctoral students at Tel Aviv University in the year 2017-2018. Throughout her studies, Dr. Maimon-Blau has continued to participate in social and volunteer activities benefiting the public.
