Probably yes. If this took place less than three years ago, it was a private facility, the abuse was serious, and it took place in the course of the staff person performing their job, the facility is responsible, and you may have a case.  If the facility was run by a government entity, you had 90 days to serve a notice of claim in order to preserve your right to sue.

Civil Rights
Every person has certain civil rights, granted to the by the U.S. Constitution, Bill of Rights, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other federal, state and local laws. Civil rights laws deal with a variety of topics, including human rights, women's rights, disabled rights and gay rights. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which bans employment discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex or national origin, is one of the best-known civil rights laws in recent history. If your civil rights have been violated, a civil rights attorney can help you take legal action.
