Attorneys Helping You Understand Maximum Medical Improvement in Arvada, CO

Focused on getting you the medical care you need

The maximum medical improvement (MMI) concept refers to a doctor saying that enough has been done to try and improve your condition. Unfortunately, you may be a long way from feeling like you have fully recovered from your injury at this point. The way insurance companies look at the maximum medical improvement is that the treatment no longer serves to improve your condition resulting from your injury, which, of course, affects your benefits in a workers’ compensation claim. If you disagree with the doctor’s assessment that you have reached MMI, you have the ability to dispute it. It is essential to retain a proficient workers’ compensation attorney to successfully contest an MMI determination. The attorneys at The Elliott Law Offices, P.C. can assist you in addressing your MMI concerns.

What is an Impairment rating?

When you have reached a point of MMI, a physician determines your level of impairment. A rating is given that places a value on the percentage of loss you sustained as a result of your injury. Partial disability may be determined for lesser injuries, while permanent disability results when your rating is severe.  The workers’ compensation attorneys at The Elliott Law Offices, can assist you in determining if permanent or partial impairment exists and how it affects the amount of benefits you are able to receive

Why is maximum medical improvement important?

Our law firm in Arvada believes that you deserve the most treatment possible to improve your health after your injury. This leads to the largest settlement available for an injured worker. Once all treatments have been administered and the doctor does not think any further medical action is feasible, and you agree with the assessment, we can help you stipulate to the MMI and reach a fair settlement value. We can help you predict future damages, such as:

  • Medical costs
  • Lost wages

Often, a doctor makes a wrong permanent impairment rating at the time of the MMI declaration. If that’s the case, we argue that you may need more treatment. These are all factors related to ensuring that you receive the maximum benefits for your injuries.
