It really depends on a number of factors. Medical bills, future medical bills, pain, pain and suffering, loss wages,lost future wages, lack to enjoy life as prior to the injury.
These are questions that only the attorneys and Jury/Judge/Mediator and really decide. I know that your wanting a ball park figure but all case's are different. And each is settled for amounts more or less then plaintiffs though they may receive.
If you have legal counsel then they are truly the only one's after reviewing your case that can give a correct answer to your question.
I would pursue it though if your the injured person and not at fault. You may very well have a good case.
