Great Circle Class Action LawsuitSt. Louis, MO
If you or a Love One has been harmed by Great Circle, We Will Fight for You
Residential treatment centers and group homes such as Great Circle are supposed to protect and serve those vulnerable populations who are unable to protect themselves. Sadly, sometimes the leaders of these institutions neglect their responsibilities, or worse, commit or cover up abuse. This can take many forms, such as failing to properly supervise and protect residents from each other, failing to prevent sexual or other assaults, the use of excessive force when restraining children, refusing to provide proper medical care for residents, refusing to comply with mandatory reporting of incidents, inadequate staffing, or other forms of neglect or substandard care, for example.

Great Circle Class Action Lawsuit – Great Circle Claims Lawyer St. Louis
Great Circle provides specialized behavioral health services for children throughout Missouri. Some of these services include 24-hour specialized care, residential treatment, group homes, services for autism, counseling, crisis, and intensive therapies among others.
The criminal complaint filed by the prosecutors describes six separate incidents where Mr. Hillyer allegedly directed subordinate staff to refuse emergency medical treatment to inpatient residents. Some examples listed include refusing to seek emergency medical treatment for a resident who jumped from a two-story building, fracturing his back and refusing treatment for a resident who was stabbed in the liver by another resident.
Disgustingly, the criminal complaint alleges that Hillyer initiated a policy to not call emergency medical services for student-related incidents and further discouraged contacting 911 through employee disciplinary actions.
