A: Your MMI/IR should be after you have gotten as well as you will ever be from your injury. Typically it would be AFTER therapy, however that is not always the way medical providers determine it. I wish you the best of luck.

A: I agree with Roy Warren's answer. Good Luck. If you have issues or additional questions, feel free to contact a workers' compensation attorney directly. Most will speak to you on the phone at no charge.
