Schad & Schad is a premier southern Indiana law firm devoted to representing plaintiffs in social security claims , personal injury, and wrongful death. We handle tough, complex cases. Our verdicts and settlements include vehicle collisions, trucking accidents, landowner liability, defective products, medical negligence, construction injuries, and toxic exposure cases.
We believe that fighting the good fight can change things not only for the injured, but for the community we live in. We don't back down. When we take a case to trial, it sends a message to those whose carelessness wrecks the lives of innocent victims: It tells them not to drive recklessly in our community. It tells them not to sell dangerous products here. It tells them not to break the safety rules that endanger children, or the weak, or the poor. And it lets our Government know that when someone pays into a system they helped build, that person deserves every consideration available.
Schad & Schad is a family firm. Larry Schad and Matt Schad grew up in southern Indiana. We live here. We are committed to making a difference in the lives of our clients who live here, in helping to ensure justice for the injured who live here, and in contributing to our local legal community through leadership and education.
