This is a complicated question, as it seems like there's quite a bit going on. My best advice is to schedule a free consultation with a personal injury attorney. Nearly all injury attorneys offer free consultations. Even if you don't hire the attorney, you're likely to get some great advice. I generally recommend that you do not settle a bodily injury claim immediately after the accident. Your wife likely doesn't yet know the full extent of her injuries. I would be happy to speak with you if want to discuss the claims.

If you are in a car accident, you should call an injury attorney and get a consultation. Most personal injury consultations are free. I suggest you talk to a car accident lawyer before accepting any money regarding the auto accident. Most offers by an insurance company regarding personal injury are accompanied by a release of all claims. If you sign it, the case is usually over. Call a lawyer immediately before you take any action that could prejudice or bar your car accident injury claim.
Get an experienced personal injury attorney's representation ASAP. Get maximum compensation - not a low ball offter. Good luck.
