I suffered second degree burns to three of my fingertips 1 year and seven months ago after a waitress handed me a hot plate. Since then I have suffered nerve damage to all three fingertips. Daily I suffer with pain, burning sensation, pins and needles sensation, sensitivity to hot and cold. My physician states that generally nerves will heal within the first year and half but she has seen cases where it has taken years to heal if they do at all. I have suffered with fibromyalgia for the last 7 years and this is just something to add on to my already chronic pain. Insurance wants to settle for $3000.00. I think it's a ridiculous amount of money for the changes of lifestyle, pain and suffering and depression I have had due to this. Am I wrong for believing this?
