Where do I go for my workers’ comp case?

Michigan Workers’ Compensation Agency releases new magistrate docket assignments and updated contact information for hearing sites.

It is common for our clients to ask about the location of their workers’ comp case. These types of matters are administrative and not heard at the local courthouse.

The county of injury determines where a workers’ comp case will take place. Magistrates are placed at various hearing sites around the state.
