Greenville, North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Attorney

What Maximum Medical Improvement Means for You

Maximum medical improvement (MMI) occurs when an injured employee reaches a state where his or her condition cannot be improved any further. At that point, no further healing or improvement is deemed possible. When a worker who is receiving Workers’ Compensation benefits reaches maximum medical improvement, his or her condition is assessed and a degree of permanent or partial impairment is determined. This degree will impact the amount of benefits the worker is able to receive.

Maximum medical improvement means that treatment options have been exhausted. Temporary disability payments are terminated and a settlement is worked out regarding the condition of the worker at this point. This is a crucial point in any Workers’ Compensation situation, and having an attorney at your side will greatly impact the settlement and future payment/s you will receive. A doctor’s written confirmation is needed to authenticate that MMI has been reached and that a settlement can be worked out.

Maximum Medical Improvement & Workers’ Comp Benefits

If your doctor has confirmed that you have reached maximum medical improvement, your lawyer should get a written statement confirming this and the doctor’s determination regarding the partial or permanent disability or impairment that you are left with. This determination is a key factor in negotiating your settlement amount. If you are dissatisfied with your doctor’s evaluation, you are entitled to get a second opinion. You may find that the second opinion is better for your future financial stability, particularly when your disability hinders your ability to work.
