The company will commonly encourage you to see only company doctors. Of course, the company doctors put you at MMI sooner than you are, so the company can stop paying you your maintenance payments. You should go see an independent doctor, and let them examine you and look at your records, and tell you their opinion on whether you are at MMI yet. If the independent doctors says you are not yet at MMI, make sure you tell the company this, as they are required to consider this in deciding whether to continue your maintenance payments.
