    Default Re: Permanent and Stationary

    It means nothing in the NC work comp act. That terminology is not used in NC work comp cases. The previous poster defined it correctly, but it has no real significance in NC law. The almost comparable NC term is probably "MMI" or "maximum medical improvement." That means you are stationary in terms of the progress of your medical improvement but you are not necessarily suffering from any permanent injury.
    The North Carolina Court of Appeals has held that "In contested Workers' Compensation cases today, access to competent legal counsel is a virtual necessity." Church v. Baxter Travenol Labs, Inc., and American Motorists Insurance Company, 104 N.C. App. 411, 416 (1991).
