Nursing Home Neglect Attorneys in Salt Lake City

Providing Proficient & Compassionate Legal Representation

Entrusting the care of a loved one to a nursing home is a difficult decision for people across Utah. No matter how much diligence you may have applied in selecting a care facility, you ultimately count on individuals’ proper training, skills, and dedication to provide the best possible care of a vulnerable adult or elder. When patients are abused or neglected in nursing homes, it can result in serious injury and even death. At Eisenberg, Gilchrist & Cutt Attorneys at Law, we are dedicated to exposing the truth and recovering maximum compensation for victims of nursing home negligence and elder abuse.

While the Adult Protective Services (APS) agency monitors specific guidelines intended to prevent elder abuse, this serious problem is widespread. You may well encounter an overburdened, non-responsive system when you report suspected nursing home negligence, even if you have strong reasons to believe your loved one was a victim of inadequate care or abuse.

Common cases of nursing home abuse or neglect include:

  • Failures to attend and properly supervise a nursing home resident, resulting in a fall or a life-threatening condition such as bedsores or an infection
  • Negligence in calling on a physician when a nursing home patient’s medical problems emerge or worsen
  • Outright physical, sexual, or mental abuse, sometimes by nursing home staff who have been inadequately trained or insufficiently background-checked

Holding the Responsible Party Accountable

Nursing home administrators and staff, whether they are staffing assisted living centers, hospice care, or Alzheimer’s or dementia centers, have a clear obligation to understand and monitor individual patients’ needs. A patient’s dire medical prognosis or clearly debilitating condition is no excuse for negligence and neither are the demands of this undeniably challenging, yet important work.

Our nursing home neglect attorneys in Salt Lake City make cases of nursing home neglect, abuse, and negligence a priority because we recognize the extent of the problem and its tremendous impact on our elders and their families. Our goal is to always obtain maximum compensation for our clients to ensure the highest quality of life.

We feel he was very fair.

  • I would recommend Eric Olson to anyone. He was very professional and strived to educate me in making the best decisions when I had no idea how to decide what to do.

  • I was in an auto accident three years ago. The first auto accident I have ever been in, but the other driver was ticketed. This lead to slow and obvious pain that grew worse. Doctors, surgery, shots, emotional trauma from not being able to physically do things I used to.
