How are auto injury settlement amounts calculated?

Is there a common calculation that is a rule of thumb at all with auto injury settlements? My husband and I were hit head on a few months ago and he was badly injured (in the hospital for a week). Do we take our medical bills and multiply by a certain amount at all or is that just a rumor? Any help is appreciated! Oh, and we are working with an attorney - he just hasn't given us any kind of figure yet since we're not done with medical treatments.
