Los Angeles Abuse and Neglect of Teens in Residential Treatment Programs Lawyers

When parents cannot control their teenaged children, they sometimes turn to boot camps, “tough love” camps or wilderness therapy camps for help. These residential programs can take advantage of the vulnerability of parents who want to help their children at any cost and the physical vulnerability of the young people in their care. Sometimes the children pay with their lives.

A Bad Report on Therapeutic Camps

Reports of physical, sexual and emotional abuse of young people in residential therapeutic camps are commonplace. During 2005 alone, 33 states reported 1,619 staff members were involved in incidents of abuse in residential treatment programs, according to a
report by the Government Accounting Office.

The same document reported multiple cases of serious injuries and fatalities at boot camps and residential centers for youth.

The attorneys of
Greene Broillet & Wheeler, LLP, have successfully represented clients whose children suffered serious injuries or wrongful death due to the negligence of those who own and operate therapy camps.

Results for the Injured and Their Families

One case involved the death of a young man at a camp in Texas. Another case involved a camp resident whose arm was severely burned by boiling hot grease.

We have found that many of these camps are ill-prepared to protect the health and safety of their residents. If your child suffered a serious injury — or worse — at a tough love camp or academy for troubled youth, please
contact our law firm to discuss your case. We will aggressively pursue maximum compensation for damages.
