Lynwood, California

Welcome to the Lynwood website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. Being at the forefront of nursing home abuse litigation in Los Angeles, we have created this website to promote education and awareness about nursing home neglect and the obligations such facilities and their staff owe to their patients.

Lynwood was incorporated in 1921, and is part of Los Angeles County. In 1902, a dairyman named C.H. Sessions acquired title to 400 acres to build a dairy and creamery in what is now part of the city of Lynwood. He named the dairy and creamery after his wife Miss Lynn Wood, and the city later adopted her name. It is the birthplace of notable people including professional tennis player Venus Williams and actor Kevin Costner. According to the 2010 census, Lynwood has a population of 69,772. There are currently four skilled nursing facilities within the city of Lynwood. Alternatively, there are home health care agencies in Lynwood as well.

Many of us place our trust in the hands of nursing home facilities and their staff, relying on them to take proper care of our elderly loved ones. The type of care provided by nursing homes greatly impacts the well-being and quality of life of these elderly residents. Therefore, it is of great importance that you choose a nursing home that is qualified to meet all your loved one’s needs in order to prevent instances of nursing home abuse or neglect. Common nursing home injuries may include dehydration or malnutrition, the violation of the Patient’s Bill of Rights, pressure ulcers, falls, and the spread of infections.

There are many factors that come into play when deciding upon a facility. While distance may be an important factor, some other aspects you should consider include the number of citations or complaints a nursing home facility has received. This information will help you determine whether or not your loved one will be receiving the high-quality care they deserve, or whether their standard of care may be inadequate. Another source of helpful information would be to look into the nursing home facility’s deficiency record. If Medicare or Medicaid provides funding for the nursing home, the Department of Health and Human Services will conduct inspections in order to discover whether or not the nursing home meets the minimum Medicaid and Medicare standard of quality and performance. If a violation is discovered, the facility will be issued a deficiency, which is public information that can be found here.

Because the elderly are such a vulnerable population, they are highly susceptible to abuse and neglect, resulting in a range of injuries. If you find that your loved one has incurred harm or injury due to the actions of a nursing home facility, we encourage you to contact us at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi for a free consultation today. We are dedicated to protecting the best interests of you and your loved one, and will remain vigilant in holding all responsible parties accountable for their egregious actions.

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
