Abstract

The insurance transaction is characterized by information and power gaps between insurers and insureds concerning the interest insured and its exposure to a potential risk. In order to abridge information and power gaps between the parties of the insurance contract, various provisions were legislated by the Israeli legislator, the courts and the regulator—the Commissioner of Insurance, imposing duties of disclosure in the various stages of the insurance transaction, both in the pre-contractual stage, during the policy period and especially after the occurrence of the insured event.
