when you are at MMI your TTD will stop.
the employer/carrier is entitled to a second opinion on the extent of any permanent disability.
any settlement will have to be negotiated between the rating opinions or you can have the comp court decide.

0% means no impairment & fully recovered.
100% means total impairment & no work forever.
additional permanent disability benefits are paid for a fixed number of weeks depending on the rating.
