Cudahy, California

Welcome to the Cudahy nursing home neglect attorney website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. We created this website with the purpose of educating the people of Cudahy about common abuses that nursing homes inflict upon their elderly residents, in hopes that you will be cautious in your selection of a skilled nursing facility.

Although it is the second smallest city in Los Angeles County, Cudahy has one of the highest population densities of any incorporated city in the United States. Named after its founder, Michael Cudahy, the city was originally primarily agricultural. Michael Cudahy created the concept of "Cudahy lots," one-acre farms that were designed for keeping large vegetable gardens, fruit trees, chicken coops or horse stables. It was not until after World War II that the city finally became industrialized with steel and automobile plants. When those factories closed in the late 1970s, stucco apartment complexes were built in their places and the population density increased dramatically. As of the 2010 census, Cudahy's population was 23,805. Cudahy has no Skilled Nursing Facilities, but you can search this website for one convenient to you.

Here at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we ardently believe that each and every human being is entitled to the highest standard of professional care while living at a skilled nursing facility. The elderly living in these facilities are at increased risk of dehydration, which can lead to lethargy, confusion, falls, stroke and ultimately death. Malnutrition is a similar problem which can lead to many complications, such as pressure ulcers and infections. Section 483.35 of Title 42 of the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations says that nursing homes have to provide meals that are nourishing, meet any special dietary needs the resident might have, and also appealing to the senses. The facility must employ a qualified dietician and enough staff to assist any residents who cannot feed themselves, even if that means a one to one, patient to staff ratio. When a loved one in a nursing home is so dehydrated that it contributes to his or her death, the beneficiaries may choose to bring a Wrongful Death claim against the nursing home and its operators.

If you believe you or your loved one did suffer or is now suffering from dehydration or malnutrition due to their facility's neglect, contact us today. We will advocate on your behalf, saving you the frustration and stress of handling the problem alone. If you are unable to meet with us, we will come to your home to provide you with your free consultation.

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.

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
