As an insurance defense counsel, I've settled simple broken toe cases for as little as $5000 to as much as $15,000. As a plaintiff's attorney, I consider $15,000 a bottom line figure for a simple fracture. Complicated fractures warrant more.

Your case is worth what you can convince the insurance company to offer; which is almost always a net loss to you without quality representation. Want to be done with it; good luck? Just remember, a settlement is final and binding upon all.

It is hard to put a number on your injury without more facts. I would recommend you speak with a personal injury attorney in your area to help you maximize your settlement.
Without specific details about the liability in the case, the insurance coverage, and the damages you suffered, nobody on this site could possibly provide you with even a 'ballpark' figure for a proper settlement. You should really consider retaining a personal injury attorney and express your desire to settle quickly. Best of luck.

You really need to contact an attorney. The attorney can review all of the issues and provide you with your best options. It is too hard to evaluate a case with these only these basic facts.
It sounds like you have an attorney, and that attorney is best able to answer your questions. If you don't have one, retain a personal injury lawyer today. Find one with a low contingency fee, less than 30% with no costs deducted, so you are left with the lion's share of the settlement money, not your lawyer. Good luck.

You are making a mistake by not consulting with a local attorney who knows the carrier, local jury awards and has experience in personal injury evaluations.You should obtain needed medical care and treatment immediately and follow the doctor's advice. Do not give any statement to the adverse party or insurance company nor grant them access to any medical records. Photograph the injuries and the damage done to any property. Contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible so that you can protect your rights. You may also find it helpful to review the Legal Guides I have published on Avvo.com dealing with many of the issues you are now facing. The Guides can be accessed through my profile page on Avvo.com.
