Fullerton, California

Welcome to the Fullerton website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. We have created this website for informational purposes, so that the residents of Fullerton are made aware of the dangers of nursing home neglect and abuse. We are here to provide legal support should you or your loved one find that a nursing home facility has breached its obligations towards you.

The city of Fullerton is part of Orange County, California. Fullerton was originally founded as a railroad town, and is the home to Fullerton Train Station. The city’s motto is “The Education Community,” and is the location of many higher education facilities including California State University, Fullerton and Fullerton College, the oldest community college in California to be in continuing operation. According to the 2010 census, Fullerton has a population of 135,161 people. There are currently eight skilled nursing facilities located in Fullerton. Alternatively, there are home health care agencies in Fullerton as well.

If your loved one is currently residing in a nursing home, you have entrusted the staff members of the facility to provide high-quality care to your loved one. Unfortunately, there are many cases of pervasive neglect and abuse towards elderly residents of nursing homes, and some instances may even lead to death. Commonly, many of the injuries that arise within these facilities are consequences of the facility’s violations of the Patient’s Bill of Rights. This bill of rights imposes a standard upon skilled nursing facilities within California, with which they are obligated to comply, and it is implemented to ensure the protection and safety of elderly residents.

Unfortunately, many elderly residents are not even aware that their rights are being violated, and thus continue to face injury and even risks of death. Facilities may generally breach patient’s rights due to substandard quality of care and understaffing issues. Specific violations may entail, but are not limited to, the right to be free from developing pressure ulcers, the right to be free from incontinence, the right to proper nutrition and hydration, the right to be free from the spread of infections, along with the right to be treated with dignity, respect, consideration and individuality. However, because many residents are unable to speak for themselves, or may be suffering from mental infirmities, they are unable to protect themselves against such breaches.

We cannot allow for our elderly residents to suffer from breaches of their rights, and must hold facilities accountable for their egregious actions. Elder abuse within nursing home facilities has become too widespread. Thus, the experienced professionals at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi seek to emphasize the importance of taking legal action against instances of nursing home abuse and neglect. Contact us today for a free consultation if you believe your loved one’s rights have been violated by a nursing home facility.

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
