Michigan workers comp lawyer discusses how the place of injury is where your case will be decided.
I recently had a client receive a notice for a hearing over three hours from his home. He was upset because of how far he needed to travel for his workers comp case.
I explained that it does not matter where he lives or where his employer is located. The county of injury determines the hearing site location.

Find an experienced workers comp lawyer who can help
It is important to hire a workers comp lawyer who is familiar with the hearing sites and local magistrates. Every workers comp case is different and each magistrate brings his or her own personal views and opinions when deciding the claim. Many times this information is critical to determine whether a workers comp case should be settled or set for trial.
We recently represented a woman with a workers comp case in Pontiac, MI. We were able to move her hearing to Macomb County so that the magistrate who started her workers comp case could make the final decision about granting her benefits.
