MMI
#1
Hello, the orthopedic surgeon of the spine, the orthopedic surgeon of the knee, the doctor treating physical therapy and the IME Dr, declared me MMI. With different opinions. I have an audience very soon and I was asked to fill out the lwec form. My question is that if I could already obtain permanence? And what does that mean to me? I am also worried that in the report of the last ime there are errors that were not rectified I do not know how bad that is, for example that I did not use any orthopedic device, or that I did a cervical MRI a few months ago, and the last one was 3 years, report of a doctor who do not know who he is and some other things. Not to mention that his opinion is very different from my Drs. I don't know what to expect. and if I become ppd. How is that determined

Maximum Medical Improvement means the injury has reached a relative unchanging state and is ready for determination of the extent of permanent impairment.
Not every fact contained in a report is critical to a finding of permanent impairment. One would have to review the details of the report to determine what findings the physician is relying on to support his conclusions

thanks for answering. I have a lawyer. Don't talk to him but talk to someone in his office. From what I understand, no rectification was sent, only the insurance was informed of the error

You can have your treating doctor review the offending report and issue a written opinion as to what is in error or been left out.
