Accident at work, settlement offer advice?

I had a fall at work in January after tripping on a board on the floor. I dislocated my shoulder and had surgery at the start of August. I had the same surgery 4 years ago and my shoulder was perfect up until my fall.
To complicate things I handed in my notice the day before my fall because I had a new job. I couldn't start my new job and couldn't claim and sickness benefit as I resigned from a job, so loss of earnings won't be possible. My lawyer emailed to say the my employers insurance company admitted full liability and made a 'pre medical' offer for pain and suffering only of ?3000. He seems to think it's a good offer. Right now I'm still recovering from the surgery and my physio reckons I'm developing a secondary frozen shoulder. Quite a few people have said it's a bad offer and I should be aiming for at least 3 times that. Any advice?

If you are not satisfied with the amount of compensation, and your solicitor is unable to help you in getting more then you can consult with other solicitor firms. Ask them and get to know how can they help in getting more compensation. Only then decide with which personal injury attorney you want to go with.
