You should first hire an attorney. You say the injured had significant injuries. Inexperienced lay persons are the last people to evaluate the value of a case. The insurance carrier may agree with the injured person.

You should retain an experienced personal injury attorney who can advise you as to the value of your case. If a settlement cannot be reached before litigation, then a lawsuit should be filed.
