Car Accidents

Most people avoid car accidents and are grateful to never experience one. At the same time, we simply don’t know if or when one will occur. When a car accident does take place, it can result in physical damage, bodily harm and sometimes even death. What follows can be painful, drawn out and expensive.

McCain Law Offices knows the ins and outs of recovery and litigation after a car accident, including those involving semi-trucks. We can assist you in areas such as fully understanding insurance coverage and liability, taking the proper steps after an accident and handling legal proceedings related to the accident.

Wrongful Death

Being severely injured is hard on a victim and his or her family, but losing a loved one because of another person’s neglect is one of the most difficult things anyone will ever endure.

McCain Law Offices understands that no amount of money can make you whole again after the loss of someone you love. You can, however, seek justice and the best recovery possible so that you can move forward as you try to heal. We treat you and your family with respect and compassion in our loyal commitment to right a flagrant wrong.

Medical Negligence

We trust doctors with our lives. In return, doctors are responsible for providing a proper standard of care. Falling short of that standard can have dire consequences. Malpractice such as misdiagnosis, a failure to diagnose, a surgical error or an unnecessary surgery may lead to devastating physical, emotional and financial setbacks. McCain Law Offices holds medical negligence fully accountable and battles for just retribution.

Civil Rights

Morality cannot be legislated, but behavior can be regulated. Judicial decrees may not change the heart, but they can restrain the heartless. – Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Inspired by the timeless words of Dr. King, McCain Law Offices devotes its talent, skill and expertise to protecting social freedom and fairness. Whether the grievance is against an employer, city, county or state, we represent those who seek justice for a violation of their civil rights.

Police Misconduct

To whom much is given, much is required. – Luke 12:48

Most police officers are good, hard-working, law-abiding people – true civil servants on whom we can depend. They risk their lives each day to protect and serve their communities. They deserve respect and gratitude.

Police officers also wield great social power that is granted to them on our behalf. Whether because of a personal flaw or a lapse in judgment, some police abuse that power. McCain Law Offices defends those who have been a victim of police brutality or excessive force.

Employment Discrimination

McCain Law Offices represents employees who have been subjected to discrimination by their employers. Though many states now observe an at-will employment doctrine, an employer cannot retaliate against employees or discriminate on the basis of race, age, gender, religion, disability or national origin.

We handle cases in which an employee’s rights at work have been compromised. To learn more about what the law defines as employment discrimination, contact our office at (219) 884-0696.

Professional Licensing

*Attorney discipline in Illinois only

A license of specialization is vital to many professional practices. A threat to a professional license is a serious matter that must be managed with wisdom and skill.

McCain Law Offices represents professionals including medical, dental, real estate, funeral and engineering personnel whose licenses are under investigation or being questioned by a licensing board.

We also represent lawyers before the Illinois Attorney Registration and Disciplinary Commission. Whether defending against an alleged grievance or a verified complaint, we have the experience to provide prudent counseling, address claims of professional and ethical misconduct, and advocate before the commission and the hearing panel.
