Schererville is a town in Lake County, Indiana, United States.  It is part of the Chicagoland area.  The population was 30,443 at the 2011 census.


Long before Indiana became a state and before the founding of Schererville, people called this place the "Crossroads of the Nation.”  The name was appropriate, for several Indian trails intersected here that later became routes for the wagons of settlers traveling west.


One of those described settlers was Nicholas Scherer, who arrived in the United States from Germany in 1846.  When he came to this place at the southern tip of Lake Michigan in 1866, he founded the town that emulates his name.


Today, instead of trails, U.S. Highways 41 and 30 run through Schererville.  Nearby are newer roads, I-80/94 and I-65.  All of these roads are primary routes and gives Schererville its slogan: "Crossroads of the Nation."


Since the 1990s, Schererville has attracted many new out of state residents.  The town's prime location, reasonable housing costs, and high level of municipal services have contributed to its huge growth in recent years.


The town was named one of the "100 Best Places to Live in the U.S." by Money Magazine in 2007.

  • Do not make any conclusive statements

    #2.  At the time or your accident  or injury it is common try to  analyze your injuries or all the circumstances of the accident. In most cases, this should not be done during the stressful aftermath of an accident. If other parties make statements make note of  their comments. Do not sign documents or make statements to an insurance adjuster.

  • Cooperate with emergency authorities

    #3.  Cooperate with  medical care and law enforcement authorities. Provide requested motor vehicle, insurance or personal ID information.  Capture pictures (via cell phone) of important details of your accident (by an uninjured party).

  • Contact an attorney to review your injury case

    #4.  Each personal injury case has unique circumstances which can only be addressed from an experienced and qualified personal injury attorney.  Contact an attorney for a confidential consultation as soon as possible.

  • Be Patient - Follow medical care directives

    #5.  Medical injuries can take time to fully diagnose.
