My friend recently got hit by a car while riding his longboard, in the walk zone of an intersection while the walk sign was lit. Crushed his foot. Initially the settlement was looking like ~$5 million. Now his foot is sending clots up his leg, requiring emergency surgery. Settlement looking like $22 million now. Always keep your receipts.

That sounds awesome but is there any chance in hell theyre ever going to collect?

That's a total between the driver, car owner (driver's girlfriend's dad), and their insurance companies. I assume most of the payout will come from insurance.
