Since the claim was denied, your only recourse is to sue the registered owner of the vehicle for negligence.
Your damages (monetary compensation you are seeking in your lawsuit) should include your medical bills, pain and suffering, and wage loss.
Compensation for the medical bills is straight reimbursement. Compensation for pain and suffering for the loss of your leg is an amount in addition to the medical bills. Compensation for wage loss is straight reimbursement.
