Assault in a residential treatment center (RTC) commonly occurs due to the negligence of multiple parties. If you or a loved one were assaulted and seriously injured in a residential treatment center, contact the RTC Lawyers today to discuss your legal options for compensation.
At The RTC Lawyers, we believe all individuals victimized by the abusive practices of residential treatment centers have the right to seek justice for their damages. We are comprised of two law firms dedicated to ending institutional abuse in RTCs across the country.

The RTC Lawyers has the know-how to pursue any responsible parties to seek rightful compensation on your behalf.
