Maximum Medical Improvement
Commonly known as “MMI”. Maximum medical improvement is a medical term that means that you have been helped as much as medicine can help you. Thus, while you may not get any better, it does not mean that you need to stop your treatment, nor does it mean that your pain will not get worse; or that further treatment and/or surgery will not be needed to improve your condition. This simply means that that particular physician or doctor feels that they can no longer assist you in getting better and you are at a stage where they can only manage your pain levels in maintaining or alleviating the aggravation or exacerbations of your condition.
This is a term that means your condition gets worse due to a number of factors. These may include rigorous physical activity or even somewhat benign and everyday living activities.

Request for Admissions is questions posed from one party to the next in which they are requested to admit or deny certain information.
Litigation is the process of filing a lawsuit, finding out information about the incident and ultimately, if necessary, taking the case to trial. The “litigation” term is a very broad term and encompasses filing the lawsuit, answering interrogatories, taking depositions, filing motions and trying the case. At any time, the parties can decide to settle the case; thus litigation does not mean the case will definitely go to a jury.
