Palos Verdes Estates, California

Welcome to the Palos Verdes Estates website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi where we are dedicated to helping you with any challenges you may have faced in a Los Angeles skilled nursing facility.

Palos Verdes Estates was incorporated as a city of Los Angeles County in 1939. The city features a scenic view of the Pacific Ocean. Although most of the beaches are surrounded by cliffs and rocky shorelines, there are some publicly accessible beaches. Palos Verdes Estates is famous for its many beautiful coves. In fact, the popular Pirates of the Caribbean movies series has actually used these coves for on-site filming. Although Palos Verdes Estates is a primarily residential city, it does not have any nursing homes. However, you can use this website to find one nearby.

Nursing home neglect can manifest itself in many ways. One of the most common injuries in nursing homes are those that occur as a result of falls. Facilities should be equipped with call lights so that if a fall does occur, patients can push them to immediately alert the staff that assistance is needed. However, just because your loved one's nursing home is equipped with call lights does not necessarily imply that the facility has effective fall prevention strategies. Call lights are useless if the nursing home staff does not respond promptly. Therefore, it is especially important that your loved one's nursing home is adequately staffed with individuals who are knowledgeable and trained to respond to problems promptly and effectively. Too often, minor injuries escalate to more serious ones when patients are not found and treated quickly enough after their falls.

In fact, fall-related injuries have become such a prominent problem in nursing homes that the Department of Health and Human Services awards health facilities for reducing incidents of preventable injuries. Meanwhile, some facilities have taken it into their own hands to provide solutions to preventing falls. Although some nursing homes have made legitimate efforts to increase patient safety by installing railings and call lights, others have resorted to the use of restraints. However, the use of physical restraints is actually a violation of Patients' rights unless the facility has received consent from the patient and the device is used solely for medical purposes.

If you feel that your loved one's nursing home is providing inadequate care, please do not hesitate to contact us today for a free consultation.

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
