Avalon, California

Welcome to the Avalon website for Los Angeles elder abuse attorneys. Here at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we possess a fervent dedication to fighting nursing home abuse. We strongly believe that skilled nursing facilities have the duty to provide you or your loved one with care that is compatible with the highest possible quality of life. If a nursing home fails to carry out this responsibility, we would like to help you by offering legal support.

Avalon is located on Santa Catalina Island, a small island, just twenty-two miles long and eight miles wide, just off the coast of Southern California. The city serves as Catalina's only incorporated city. The other city on Catalina Island, called Two Harbors, is not a part of any county in Southern California. As Avalon is a resort community, much of the city's business is geared toward tourists. Much of the city's success as a tourist destination can be attributed to William Wrigley, Jr., who invested in and oversaw much of Avalon's development. The most popular and convenient way to get to and from the city is by passenger boats such as the Catalina Flyer. As of the 2010 census, the city was recorded to have a population of 3,728. Despite the island's small size, both demographically and geographically, Avalon has 1 nursing facility and 3 home healthcare providers.

As specialists in Los Angeles nursing home abuse litigation, we would like to emphasize the importance of being cautious in your selection of healthcare facilities for yourself or your loved one. It is often easy to overlook the different aspects of nursing home neglect and abuse, especially when nursing homes are lacking in the most basic of needs, such as food and water. Many individuals incorrectly assume that by default, all skilled nursing facilities are fulfilling these basic needs, and yet all too often we find residents who are victims of malnutrition and dehydration. In a country privileged to have an abundant food supply and clean drinking water, it is inexcusable for any nursing home patient to suffer from either of these. While both are physically damaging to a patient's health, malnutrition and dehydration also directly contribute to the development of cognitive impairments and disorders, such as chronic depression. Fortunately, treatments to improve nutrition are relatively simple and only require increasing the value of certain vitamins and nutrients, such as Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, and zinc. However, despite the simplicity of treatment, many nursing homes continue to neglect their patients, leaving them to starve, and sometimes even die from diseases such as anorexia and cachexia.

If you feel that you or your loved one are suffering from malnutrition or dehydration, please call us immediately. We will zealously fight to get you and your loved ones the compensation you deserve. We will advocate on your behalf, saving you the frustration and stress of handling the problem alone.

Client Reviews
Excellent staff and the epitome of genuine, honest, and beyond helpful. I was lost and running out of time until I found Yeroushalmi law office. I am beyond grateful and had the pleasure of working with such amazing people who look out for your best interest. Anonymous review
Ben Yeroushalmi accepted my case with much understanding and patience. He went above and beyond with the defense lawyers to reach a fair settlement. He explained the complete case process (as I had never filed a case with anyone) Ben kept my sister and I notified of every email or correspondence he had with the opposing council. Gloria
Ben is an outstanding litigator, and human being. He took on our case, as if it was his own. He paid close attention to details. His guidance was invaluable. He was very clear and concise, in explaining all potential scenarios to us. He spoke eloquently, and straight to the point at all times. Ben is a true professional, with a passion for his craft. Anonymous review
I had a heartfelt and memorable experience with Ben , very genuine and I can tell he loves what he does. His determination shows beautifully and it is amazing. In my opinion it is very rare you find people who love what they're doing and it shows. Not wanting to get religious on an review but, God introduced me to Ben for a reason. Summer
Ben was wonderful. He took our case when no one else was interested or wanted way to much money. We would highly recommend Ben because he really listens and takes your situation into consideration. We settled our case and we were only unhappy with one thing and that was the confidentiality clause but that was not Ben's fault it came with the deal. June

Mr Yeroushalmi was our lawyer for a case involving my mother who was a victim of elderly abuse while in a nursing home. He and his team did an excellent job.
