What is MMI and Permanent Impairment Rating?
At the conclusion of your treatment with a physician or when your physician has determined that you are at Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI), the Fort Lauderdale personal injury attorneys at the Florida Injury Law Group will request a final narrative report.
MMI simply means that you are as good as you are going to get. That is not to say you are as good as you were before the accident, but your condition is stabilized and you have a loss. It is at that point that some doctors assign — and insurance companies request — a permanent impairment rating. This is generally done pursuant to AMA guidelines.
Sometimes it is necessary for our Ft Lauderdale auto accident attorneys to prove that a client sustained a permanent injury before our lawyers can file a claim for bodily injury against the party ‘at fault’ for the accident. Additionally, many automobile insurance companies like to have the permanent impairment rating so they can evaluate the case.
If you have any further questions or if you have been injured in an accident and would like to speak to one of our Fort Lauderdale Attorneys, please call us or contact us here.
