It would be advisable to contact a personal injury attorney, who can refer you to an orthopedist. The orthopedist may take the case on a lien basis which means paid out of the settlement.
The amount of compensation you may receive cannot be determined until you complete your medical  treatment with the orthopedist, obtain the medical bills, medical reports, and wage loss.
Compensation for the medical bills is straight reimbursement.  The medical reports document your injury and are used to determine compensation for pain and suffering which is an amount in addition to the medical bills.  Compensation for wage loss is straight reimbursement.
