Bakersfield, California

Welcome to the website for assisted living and nursing home abuse litigation in Bakersfield. Los Angeles Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer, Ben Yeroushalmi, and his team of attorneys and experts are dedicated to helping the people of Bakersfield become knowledgeable of the responsibilities assisted living facilities and skilled nursing facilities have to ensure high quality of care for older adult residents. We are passionate about advocating for the elderly and strive to help those who have experienced abuse or neglect in these long-term care facilities.

Bakersfield was officially implemented as a city in 1873. In regards to its history, a lawyer and former colonel of the Ohio militia named Thomas Baker settled beside the Kern River during the California gold rush in 1863. A popular stopover for travelers, his new home became known as Baker’s Field. The population in this area grew to 600 by 1870, and what is now deemed Bakersfield became a fundamental town in Kern County. According to the 2010 United States Census, the city now has a population of 347, 483 and is considered one of California’s fastest growing cities. Not only is Bakersfield the 73rd biggest metropolitan economy in the nation, it is one of ten communities in the United States to be given the All-American City Award by the National Civic League. Currently, there are 14 assisted living facilities and 10 nursing home facilities located in Bakersfield.

Finding the right nursing home or assisted living facility for yourself or a loved one is no easy task. Not only is it challenging and often uncomfortable to become accustomed to a new environment, older adult residents are extremely vulnerable to abuse and neglect if not consistently provided the best quality of care. Understaffing and medication errors are just a few of the many factors that often jeopardize the health and quality of life of older adult residents. Many residents in these long-term care facilities battle with multiple health conditions that necessitate a variety of routine medications. Unfortunately, many studies have shown that medication errors are extremely common in both nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Moreover, even while under the care of nursing staff, frail older adult residents are highly vulnerable to falls that result in significant injury, as well as contracting diseases and infections such as pressure ulcers and Clostridium difficile (C. difficile). Disease outbreaks and infections in nursing homes and assisted living facilities are very difficult to contain and control. Such problems require adequate staffing levels and immediate infection control response by trained nursing staff.

Elder abuse attorney Ben Yeroushalmi believes that it is the responsibility of assisted living and nursing home facilities to protect their residents from preventable dangers such as pressure ulcers and infectious diseases. If you or someone you love has experienced a form of abuse or neglect in a long-term care facility, please contact us today. No resident deserves to be put at risk of suffering from detrimental complications due to the wrongful care of nursing staff. The attorneys at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi are experts in elder abuse litigation and will pursue your case with vigor until a just resolution is obtained.

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.

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
