    Default How Long Can Medical Remain Opened

    My wife broke her wrist last September at work. She had to have surgery and was off work for three months. Her doctor released her with MMI two weeks ago but told her she may need injections or surgery to rebuild cartledge in the future. My question is how long can we keep the medical open on her claim? Any help would be appreciated.
