I was injured in Dekalb County. Where will my workers' compensation hearing take place?

Posted by Daniel F. O'Connell | Oct 29, 2020 | 0 Comments

If you have suffered an on-the-job injury in one of the counties in the metro Atlanta area (including Dekalb, Fulton, Cobb,  Gwinnett, Henry, Rockdale, Douglas, and Clayton Counties) and you have requested a hearing in your claim, that hearing will most likely take place at the State Board of Workers' Compensation's headquarters in Downtown Atlanta.

The State Board of Workers' Compensation has several floors of offices at their headquarters at 270 Peachtree Street NW. The hearings take place in the courtrooms, which are on the 7th floor. The Peachtree Center Marta station is less than a block away from the Board's headquarters, and can be a convenient way to access the building.

If you are driving to the State Board's headquarters be aware that there is no access to parking in front of the building on Peachtree Street. To access the parking lot that is connected to the building, you will need to arrive on Ted Turner Drive, which is on the back side of the building. There you will see a sign indicating parking for 260/270 Peachtree. However, you will have to pay to park in this lot. There are also several other parking lots in close proximity to the State Board; however, these lots charge for parking as well.

It is best to give yourself plenty of time to account for traffic in downtown Atlanta and to find parking if you are going to a hearing at the State Board. If you have suffered an injury in the metro Atlanta hearing and need representation at a hearing before the State Board of Workers' Compensation please call our firm at 404-410-0034.
