Michigan workers compensation hearings are held in a number of locations throughout the State of Michigan. The location where the injury occurred is the determining factor as to hearing site for an appeal, trial, or other proceeding. There are a limited number of hearing sites which means that your actual hearing may be in a different county than the location of the injury. For example, if you were injured in Washtenaw County then your hearing will be at the Detroit site because that is the bureau for cases in Washtenaw County.

The site of your hearing is determined by which of these locations covers matters for the county of your injury. If you click on any of the Hearing Sites below, you find the street address of the hearing site and the list of counties for that hearing location.
