Hoover Workers Compensation Lawyers: Reached MMI Now What? What are My Rights? You have been told by your treating physician that, in his opinion, you have reached maximum medical improvement--now what?

The first thing you should know is that your right to temporary total disability (ttd) benefits or temporary partial disability (tpd) benefits stops once you have reached maximum medical improvement.

Next, if you have suffered a permanent physical restrictions, you will be given an impairment rating given your permanent limitations. If you permanent injury is to your neck, back, shoulders, hips or some physical/pain disorder which effects the effective functioning of your body as a whole, we look to see if you can return to your previous job given your permanent restrictions. If you cannot, then it is time to see a vocational expert to have a vocational evaluation performed so it can be determined if a settlement can be reached or if suit has to be filed.

You also need to know that for the rest of your life, as long as you require medical treatment for your work related injuries, workers compensation will be responsible for ensuring that you receive any and all reasonably necessary medical treatment. If you are involved in another accident and make your condition worse-they workers compensations' liability stops.
