Without reviewing medical records and bills, and gaining a full understanding of your losses, none of us can tell you fair value.
Whey I think you're going to read over and over, however, is that you and your daughter need a personal injury attorney to protect and advance your rights!!
Good luck to each of you.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
This is a common question and the answer depends upon a lot of factors. Best bet would be to retain an attorney in VA to review medical records and billing.
Nothing in this communication should be construed as creating an attorney client relationship. This is for informational purposes only. Attorney will take no action on your behalf unless and until a written retainer agreement is signed. There are strict time deadlines on filing claims and, as such, you are advised to consult with and retain an attorney immediately to file such claims timely or you will lose any right to recovery. Any testimonials or endorsements should not be construed as a guarantee, warranty or prediction of the outcome of your case.
That you are wise enough to ask is to your credit; that you presumably have not consulted with local and qualified counsel is not. You owe at least as much to you daughter. Good luck.

A case can not be evaluated for worth merely on a generalized description. It requires review of medical records, police/accident reports, photographs, etc. No attorney is going to give you a dollar amount to guide you. Every attorney here will tell you that wisdom dicates you consulting with a personal injury attorney in your area. Additionally, it is necessary to get a court approval of any proposed settlement for a minor, even if the parent and defendant/insurance company agree, in most jurisdictions. If that is the case in VA, then you will need an attorney to prepare the necessary papers for the court, anyway.
There are a plethora of factors that go into putting a number on a case. A local personal injury lawyer would need to investigate all the facts and circumstances.
