You really should consult directly with a personal injury attorney in your area. The fact is that most consultations of this kind are free and  a settlement negotiated by an attorney typically results in a higher offer (even after their fees). At any rate, here is a link to an article that you may find to be of help:

It is not possible to determine how much compensation you should seek until you complete your medical treatment and are released by the doctor or are declared by the doctor to be permanent and stationary which means having reached a point in your medical treatment where no further improvement is anticipated. Obtain your medical bills, medical reports and documentation of wage loss. Your personal injury claim filed with the at- fault party's insurance carrier should include those items.
Compensation for the medical bills is straight reimbursement. The medical reports document your injury and determine compensation for pain and suffering which is an amount in addition to the medical bills. Compensation for wage loss is straight reimbursement.
If the case is settled with the at-fault party's insurance carrier, no lawsuit is filed.
If you are dissatisfied with the settlement offers, reject them and file a lawsuit for negligence against the at-fault party.
If the case is NOT settled, your lawsuit must be filed prior to the expiration of the applicable statute of limitations or you will lose your rights forever in the matter.
