When I broke my arm several years back that was 3 breaks right around the elbow so I feel your pain. It's not bad now but it does get sore sometimes in cold weather. I think that will probably get more pronounced as the years roll on. Don't be surprised if other things crop up as you convalesce. You'll probably find some other surprises over the next couple of months.
You definitely need to start lawyer shopping ASAP. Time is pretty critical in these affairs. They'll want to get a complete statement as quickly as possible and that can have a big bearing on the outcome the longer you wait so do it quickly. Once that's done however you're likely be waiting several years for it to get resolved - took 3 years with my case. Their insurance will foot drag as much as possible in hopes you'll settle for less more quickly. If you don't need to, wait until Hell freezes over for the maximum.
Here's hoping you feel better, dude. You should nurse a little scotch this evening.
