A few years ago I ended up with a complete facial fracture, crushed sinuses under my eyes, and a broken nose. I now have 4 plates in my face. These plates should remain there unless they ever bother me or I get an infection. I am under 30 and not sure what the future will bring. They reconstructed my sinuses even though I now get sinus infections. I am normally congested in one or both of my sinuses. If I do a sinus rinse weekly I am okay. My nerves in my face still go away at times. I loose feeling of one side of my nose, cheek, and top front teeth. Happens to both sides just not usually at same time. My nose is fixed even though it goes more to left than before.
Ic wants to settle and not sure where to go. Should I take the medical or settle for under 50k/ 22% man of whole. It was hard enough to get ic to even pay the work comp bills in a reasonable time frame. What happens if the ic is no longer there? I feel as though either way I go its a gamble. Can someone who knows about this please give there input.
