In one of Christian Petrucci’s latest articles for the Legal Intelligencer he tackles several cases involving Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI) and the findings of the IRE. MMI is reached when a disabled worker has healed as much as they can from their injuries and it is thought that they will not need any more surgeries or medical care to try to improve their physical state. It is at this point that the courts can decide if the person is permanently disabled from their injury, or if they may return to work due to a lack of impairment.
