Duarte, California

Welcome to the website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi for Duarte, California. As Los Angeles nursing home neglect attorneys, we have created this website to raise awareness on the elder abuse that is present in many nursing homes today.

The city of Duarte is noted for being located on historic U.S. Route 66. The road takes the name of Huntington Drive, which runs through the middle of the city. Every year, a "Salute to Route 66" Parade takes place on the third weekend in September. The city is also a center for medical institutions. In 1928, the Jewish Consumptive Relief Association established a tuberculosis sanitarium that today has become the City of Hope National Medical Center, a leader in fighting cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Then, in 1930, the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles, a religious organization of nuns, opened the Santa Teresita Medical Center. As of the 2010 census, the city population was 21,321. Duarte is home to 5 Skilled Nursing Facilities.

At the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we specialize in Elder Abuse and Nursing Home Negligence cases. We believe that each and every human being is entitled to the highest standard of professional care while in residence at a skilled nursing facility. Unfortunately, there are times when nursing home staff, including doctors and nurses, or lack thereof, can actually be the cause of death. All too often, careless staffing errors are the direct cause of death of nursing home patients. These errors are more likely to occur when facilities are understaffed because nurses are forced to compensate for the lack of staff by either having more responsibilities than they can successfully handle or having to work extended hours, which leads to exhaustion and fatigue. Under the circumstances that a skilled nursing facility is directly responsible for a loved one's death, you are able to make a Wrongful Death claim.

If you believe your loved one's death may have been the fault of nursing home staff, please contact us immediately. Time is of the essence, as the statute of limitations for medical injury cases is one year. We offer free consultations, and in the event that you cannot come in to our office, we will gladly come to you.

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.

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
