Dana Point, California
Welcome to the Dana Point Website for the Orange County nursing home neglect law firm of Ben Yeroushalmi. As specialists in elder abuse litigation, we would like to educate you on the dangers of nursing home abuse and how to go about seeking compensation if you or a loved one has been a victim.
Dana Point is located along the coast of Southern California. As of the 2010 census, the city has a population of 33,351. In 1989, it was instated as a city of Orange County, and named after Richard Henry Dana Junior, who described the city's coast as "the most romantic spot in California." Boasting a beautiful coastline, the city is a surfing hot spot and tourist destination. With Capistrano Beach offering some of the most affluent beachfront homes in California, it is surprising that the city does not have any skilled nursing facilities. However, this website can help you find one nearby.
In nursing home litigation, the process of discovering records is very important. By comparing different types of medical records, elder abuse attorneys can identify discrepancies as they fight to find out the truth about what really happened in a skilled nursing facility. For example, sometimes, care facilities will bill Medicare or Medical for services that were never provided to the patient. As lawyers, we examine the actual nursing records and can conclude that the patient never received treatment if there is no record of it in the nursing notes. We can then formulate an argument on the basis of nursing home neglect. Often, our argument is accompanied by understaffing as well, since most nursing homes are inadequately staffed and fail to meet the legal minimum of 3.2 nursing hours per patient, per day.
As specialists in nursing home litigation, we not only understand which strategies to employ in order to maximize benefit for our client, but also possess a strong passion and sense of duty to protect victims of nursing home neglect.
