WHAT IS THE VALUE OF MY BALTIMORE PERSONAL INJURY CASE? What is maximum medical improvement?
Maximum medical improvement [MMI] is term of art, perhaps used more by personal injury lawyers in Baltimore in worker's compensation cases than in other arenas. Nevertheless, the principle applies with equal force in any scenario where an injury victim [e.g. the victim of a Baltimore car accident] is recovering from those injuries. Maximum medical improvement is that point where medical intervention has reached its ends. The patient is as good as they are going to get. Some personal injury lawyers in Baltimore, or doctors, may refer to this state as a 'plateau' or baseline. It's an important juncture in valuing the claim. At MMI an experienced personal injury lawyer in Baltimore can begin to assess things like future medical care, future lost wages, the permanence to the injury.
