Welcome to the Fresno website for nursing home neglect attorney Ben Yeroushalmi. The Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi are committed to ensure that you and your loved ones are justly compensated for any nursing home neglect or elder abuse that you have suffered.
Located in the heart of California in the fruitful San Joaquin Valley, the City of Fresno possesses many tools that encourage development and economic strength. From the fertile agricultural valley floor to the snow-covered mountains of the Sierra Nevada, Fresno is truly a place that provides something for everyone.
Founded by the Central Pacific Railroad Company in 1872, Fresno was transformed from a barren land covered in sand plains to a bustling agricultural city filled with drought-resistant trees and a system of canals. Now, Fresno is not only the fifth largest city in California, it is the financial, industrial, trade, and commercial metropolis in the Central San Joaquin Valley. This productive city is the center of a region abundant in heritage, resources, and people. With a population of over 480,000 consisting of a mixture of more than 80 different nationalities, Fresno is immersed in cultural diversity and populated with friendly, good-natured people. Opportunities for enjoyable cultural and recreational experiences abound in the city of Fresno. Moreover, there are 19 Skilled Nursing Facilities (http://www.nursinghomeguide.org/NHG/nhg_result_city.lasso) in Fresno City that cater to older adult residents with various long-term care needs.
At the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we firmly believe that every older adult is entitled to the best standard of care while residing in a care facility. The elderly are a highly vulnerable population prone to deleterious factors such as dehydration, falls, and strokes. Nursing home staff should not only be highly trained, but also extremely knowledgeable about preventing, identifying and assessing these issues. Because they are in charge of caring for individuals who are in need of constant, vigilant care, it is their responsibility to strive to maintain the best quality of life for their patients.
To lose a loved one, especially when the loss could have been prevented, is never a painless experience. Nothing can ever fully atone you for the loss of someone you love. However, should the occurrence of a hazardous issue, such as dehydration or a fall, occur and lead to the death of a loved one in a nursing home, his or her heirs may charge a Wrongful Death claim against the nursing home and its staff. Compensation can include, but is not limited to, damages for loss of society, comfort, care, and protection.
If you believe that you or your loved one suffered or is suffering due to neglect by the facility, please contact us today. The Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi want to determine if you or your loved one has been a victim of Neglect, which is a form of Elder Abuse, so you do not have to battle this problem alone. Not only will we fight to get you and your loved ones the compensation you deserve, we will advocate on your behalf.
