Am I entitled to any of my long time partner's personal injury settlement?

Question Details: I've been with the same man 11 years; we have 3 children together. He recently started a major lawsuit because he was hit by a commercial vehicle. When his lawyers started talking about the amount the lawsuit could be for, he decided he no longer wanted to be with me. He stated that even though we were never legally married, we needed to get a divorce. He wants to do the divorce with no lawyer or anything, just sign papers stating that I get nothing. He stated tI am not entitled to anything at all. I was trying to see if that is true or should I look into getting a lawyer.
