Ridgecrest, California

Welcome to the elder abuse and neglect website for the City of Ridgecrest. The Los Angeles Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer, Ben Yeroushalmi, wants to help the people of Ridgecrest be informed about the dangers and risk factors to look out for when searching for an assisted living or nursing facility for their loved ones. Mr. Yeroushalmi and his dedicated and experienced team of elder law experts and attorneys are passionate about advocating for elderly individuals who have been victims of maltreatment at a long-term care facility. We are aware that older adults who reside in these facilities are often frail and highly vulnerable to illnesses and infections such as pressure ulcers and incontinence issues due to the inadequate care provided by nursing staff. It is important that assisted living and skilled nursing facilities continuously provide high quality care to their residents by maintaining high staffing levels and ensuring that their staff are well-educated and trained to meet every resident’s complex healthcare needs.

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
