Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI)
Maximum medical improvement (MMI) is a term you will hear often in a workers’ compensation case. When you reach MMI, it simply means that your treating physician believes your condition is unlikely to improve any further.
Our Connecticut law firm can guide you through the issues surrounding MMI. Once you have reached the limit of your improvement, we can also help you seek permanent partial disability benefits, Social Security Disability benefits or other long-term benefits.
