Bringing a Personal Injury Claim for Nursing Home Negligence
Salt Lake City / Provo Elder Abuse and Neglect Attorney
When family members do not live nearby or can no longer care for a frail or ill elder, we rely upon the professional staff of skilled nursing homes, and we pay a great deal to do ensure the health and welfare of our loved one.
Unfortunately, a great many nursing homes do not live up to our trust in them. They do not hire adequate staff, the staff they have is poorly trained and poorly supervised, and careless errors are made that lead to injury or premature death.
At Rasmussen & Miner, our medical malpractice lawyers help families get answers after a loved one is seriously injured in a nursing home. With more than 20 years of experience and a track record of results we’re prepared to review your situation and advise you on the steps you can take to hold the nursing home accountable.

Justice for your family may save lives. Elders in nursing homes are among the people least able to protect themselves. Staffing problems, nursing problems, safety hazards…these issues will continue for years, endangering the lives of everyone in the facility until management sees a reason to take action. A personal injury lawsuit or wrongful death suit can be the wake-up call that’s needed to bring change.
