Legalese Defined: Workers Compensation – Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI)
In workers’ compensation cases, maximum medical improvement (or MMI) is the point at which, in your physician’s opinion, your injuries have improved as much as they are likely to and no further change in your condition is expected. When your physician finds that you have reached maximum medical improvement he or she will usually also give an opinion as to your permanent level of disability. Once a permanency opinion is issued you may be entitled to a lump sum of money, depending on the kind of injury you suffered.
