Malibu, California

Welcome to the Malibu website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. As a team of experienced elder abuse attorneys, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of residents living in nursing homes. The purpose of this website is to serve as a resource for those residing in Malibu who are seeking information about nursing home abuse and neglect within skilled nursing facilities. We want to help elderly residents and their families avoid the pain and suffering caused by nursing home abuse and neglect by taking action against nursing home facilities who fail to meet their obligations.

Malibu is located in Los Angeles County and is a beach city that was incorporated in 1991. The city is situated along 21 miles of Pacific coastline and is not only the home to many famous celebrities, but has also served as the set to many movies and television shows due to its scenic beauty. Additionally, the famous art museum, Getty Villa, is located right outside city limits and holds J. Paul Getty’s collections of art and sculptures from ancient civilizations in Rome and Greece. According to the 2010 census, Malibu had a population of 12,645 people. There are currently no skilled nursing facilities located in Malibu. But there are up to 29 skilled nursing facilities within 25 miles of Malibu. Alternatively, there are home health care agencies in Malibu as well.

If your elderly loved one is looking for a nursing home, they are expecting that the nursing home staff members will provide the high-quality, individualized care they deserve. Unfortunately, pervasive elder abuse and neglect are common occurrences in skilled nursing facilities, and many elderly residents not only suffer preventable injuries such as pressure ulcer development and falls, but such neglect or abuse may also result in death. These tragic instances often arise because the nursing home facility may be found violating the requirements of the Patient’s Bill of Rights, which requires all California skilled nursing home facilities abide by certain standards to ensure the safety and protection of their elderly residents.

Breaches of a patient’s rights may be manifested through the development of pressure ulcers or infections, failure to provide residents with proper nutrition and hydration, or the failure to treat residents with respect, dignity, individuality and consideration. Many of these violations can be cured with adequate staffing, a requirement under both state and federal law, which requires that a minimum of 3.2 nursing hours per patient per day be provided by nursing homes. However, some residents may require more hours depending upon their condition, which may require more individualized and attentive care.

Elder abuse and neglect within nursing home facilities has become too widespread, endangering the lives of our elderly loved ones. The experienced professionals at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi work vigilantly to stress the importance of taking legal action against any instances of nursing home abuse and neglect to hold all those accountable. We encourage you to 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
