In a Norwich Connecticut workers compensation claim, the concept of maximum medical improvement is important.  Maximum medical improvement (MMI) means the claimant has healed up, and has reached the point where he has gotten as good as he will get.  When that happens the claimant is now entitled to permanent partial disability benefits.  Also, the claimant is no longer entitled to temporary total disability benefits.  Typically, a doctor will make the assessment about whether the claimant is at MMI.  If there is a disagreement, then the matter can be decided after a hearing before the Workers Compensation Commissioner.
