What is maximum medical improvement?

Maximum medical improvement is when the physical or psychological injury of the affected person is not likely to improve within the next 12 months or more.

Once an injury is determined to be at maximum medical improvement by medical expert examination, the percentage of permanent impairment will be assessed according to the equation set by the GEPU and AMA Guides.
