Westminster, California

Welcome to the Westminster page for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. Our attorneys are specialists in nursing home neglect. We have extensive experience litigating all types of elder abuse cases and have taken on multiple class action suites. Pursuant to California Health and Safety Code 1430(b), all nursing home residents reserve the right to pursue action against the facility that injured them. We believe that no one should have to suffer through nursing home abuse. Our main purpose is to help you find justice for your loved ones injuries.

The City of Westminster, along with Anaheim, is one of the only two locations in Orange County to be purposefully founded. In 1870, Reverend Lemuel P. Webber established a town to be devoted to Presbyterian temperance values and morals. Drainage of the swamps surrounding the site led to fertile land where celery and grapes were grown, and grazing cows helped the settlement to grow towards its 1957 incorporation. Modern Westminster boasts a well appointed mall, on the spot where the world's largest goldfish farm used to be located, a vibrant Vietnamese-American population, and a lovely rose garden at the civic center. The city, which still plays homage to its namesake with an English architectural theme, is host to three Skilled Nursing Facilities.

Perhaps the most important thing for every nursing home patient to know is that they are not alone in their suffering. It may seem that the facility is isolating them, depriving them from care and comfort. But there are always routes of action and people and agencies ready to protect and fight for each and every nursing home resident.

Both the federal and state governments have statutes protecting nursing home patients from abuse and neglect. California Health and Safety codes delineate the rights and freedoms to which every patient is entitled. These include a well staffed clean facility, free from the threat of harm or infection. The ability for every resident to take legal action if these quality of care standards are not met is protected under section 1430(b); any preventable injury is a just cause for action, within the statute of limitations. You also have the right to access your medical records, or request that your own comments be put into the permanent records, at any time under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). These law and others were created to protect nursing home patients and give them direct courses of action should any injury or harm befall them. It is important to realize that the law is on your side; it is there to protect and stop abuse, and rectify the situation when it cannot.

The attorneys here at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi are also here for you.

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
