What Does MMI Mean In A Personal Injury Accident?


So what is MMI?

MMI is a term that stands for “maximum medical improvement” and it’s a term that your doctors will use to describe the point in your treatment where you’re as good as you’re going to get. You may have a sprain of the neck or a sprain of the back and sometimes those injuries will heal with no residual problems. Other times, and which is the case for most of our clients, you will have some residual problems.

At a certain point, whether it’s four or six months after an injury, your doctor may say you are as good as you are going to get from this injury. And more importantly, here is what your prognosis is for the future. It may include opinions regarding how much medical care you’ll need in the future, how often you’ll need to go to the doctor, what doctors you’ll need to go to, and how much you’ll need to spend every year in the future on doctors, treatment and medicine.

The reason that maximum medical improvement is so important in a personal injury case is that we get that prognosis from your doctor indicating that you will have certain problems and residual problems in the future. And it helps us prove that our clients will have permanent injuries and permanent problems for the rest of their lives as a result of their the negligent acts of somebody else. Someone who was distracted driving or someone who was DUI. And it helps us be able to prove your case and get you the justice that you deserve.

This is Mike Hancock with Hancock Injury Attorneys and that is a good explanation for MMI or “maximum medical improvement.”
