Lawndale, California

Welcome to the Lawndale website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. Our team of nursing home neglect attorneys is dedicated to protecting the elderly from abuses to which they may be subjected in skilled nursing facilities. We hope that this website will serve as a resource to help you choose the best nursing home for your loved one.

Incorporated in 1959, Lawndale is located in the South Bay region of the Greater Los Angeles Area. As of 2010, Lawndale is home to 32,769 people. Originally known as a bedroom community in which residents would commute daily from Lawndale to other cities for their jobs, Lawndale has since grown into a tourist attraction after its "Beautify Lawndale" urban renewal project. Lawndale currently has one Skilled Nursing Facility.

At the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we understand the importance of choosing a quality long-term healthcare facility for you or your loved one. When choosing a nursing home, it is important to ensure that the nursing home is not understaffed and is equipped with staff that will provide the highest quality of care. Under California state law, nursing homes are required to provide a minimum of 3.2 nursing hours per patient per day. However, 3.2 hours is just the minimum requirement. Many patients require more quality care based on their needs. It becomes highly difficult for understaffed nursing homes to identify the problems that their residents may have, and as a result, falls, pressure ulcers, infections, and other similar injuries that are preventable become much more prevalent.

Unfortunately, understaffing is a very common problem in many nursing homes. A recent survey found that on average, nursing hours per patient per day was 3.17. Another study conducted by the Health Service Research Journal found that 46 percent of medical homes fail to meet national standards in quality of care to even classify them as medical homes.

If your loved one has suffered injuries due to inadequate staffing, please contact us today to see how we can help secure your loved one's rights.

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
