soft tissue injury

I was rear ended in a car accident and suffered a soft tissue injury because a company vehicle was being driven, though it had bad breaks. My total medical bills are close to $8000. I had no preexisting injuries to my neck prior to this accident. My lawyer seems to think that $12-$15,000 is a fair settlement for a soft tissue case, and is pressuring me to consider settling for that amount. He tells me it's very unlikely I will get more than that being that it is a soft tissue case. I feel that is an unfair amount because once I pay him and the Dr. I am left with nothing, and whatever happened to money for pain and suffering? Is he telling me the truth and should I take his advice and settle, or should I seek a new attorney?
