Kramer v. National Insurance Institute (Bituach Leumi)

The National Insurance Institute had denied Mr. Kramer’s claim for workers’ compensation for injuries sustained due to a contributory effect of second hand smoking to a pre-existed respiratory condition. The Court held that exposure to second hand smoking could result in work-related injury. In this case, the smoking in the office adjacent to Mr. Kramer's contributed to his injury and therefore entitled him for compensation.
