Elkhart has a population of around 53,000 people. Although Goshen, not Elkhart, is the Elkhart County seat, Elkhart exceeds Goshen’s population by nearly 20,000 people. Elkhart is considered part of the Michiana region, just 15 miles from South Bend, 110 miles from Chicago, and 150 miles from Indianapolis. Elkhart County’s courts consist of a Circuit Court and six Superior Courts, including one of six courts in the State of Indiana dedicated to commercial cases. The Elkhart County courthouse is a historic structure, whose original construction dates to shortly after the Civil War. Spurred forward by the COVID pandemic, with an already-existing network infrastructure, Elkhart’s courts have embraced technology and remote hearings, which has led to increased efficiencies for both the courts and litigants in handling the administration of day-to-day hearings.
Elkhart has substantial infrastructure and a diverse economy. A hydroelectric dam operated by Indiana Michigan Power, a subsidiary of American Electric Power, spans the St. Joseph River providing electric power to the city. The St. Joseph River is fed by the Elkhart River just north of downtown at Island Park. Amtrak services passengers at the Elkhart Train Station, while Norfolk Southern primarily services the area’s freight. Elkhart’s medical needs are serviced by Elkhart General Hospital, a full-service 357-licensed-bed hospital with more than 300 physicians practicing in over 30 medical specialties. Altogether, Elkhart General employs nearly 2000 support, administrative, technical, and nursing employees in the local health industry. Elkhart is known nationally for its recreational vehicle and musical instrument industries, known as both the “Band Instrument Capital of the World” and “Recreational Vehicle Capital of the World.”
According to the Indiana University Public Policy Institute for the most recent yearly report at the time of writing there were 6,979 vehicle collisions in Elkhart County resulting in 27 fatalities. Statistically, rural areas of Elkhart County had the most car crashes with 2,712, followed by Elkhart with 2302. More than one fatal collision occurred on CR 22, CR 6, and CR 29. Car crashes leading to injury and fatal collisions often lead to lawsuits, as insurance companies often resist fairly compensating the injured or families of those killed in car or truck crashes. As the county seat, injury and wrongful death cases arising in Elkhart County are often filed in Elkhart County Circuit or Superior Court. In addition, nearby South Bend is home to the eastern-most division of the United States District Court for the northern district of Indiana.
