It all depends on how badly you are injured. There are actually many factors. My friend is an auto mechanic and a chisel that was being hammered on broke and a sliver shot across the garage and went thru all 12 layers of his eye. There is no surgery available to fix his blindness in one eye. Workers comp only gave him 90,000. You do not get a lot of money for your injuries. It is not like suing for medical malpractice or for an auto accident. The money they pay is quite less. I would imagine around 40,000 would be your answer and that's only if you have the right lawyer. Get a lawyer!
