This is probably the most common question that we receive from potential clients dealing with their auto insurance company. Without going into a long discussion about what you are legally entitled be compensated for, the average value of jury verdicts for similar injuries, and the specifics of your situation, the general answer is in all likelihood no.
Like it or not insurance companies are for-profit businesses and your settlement represents a loss so it will always be in their best interest to minimize your settlement to whatever degree they think they can get away with. In looking at recent studies this strategy seems to be working for them, in 2010 alone State Farm earned $1.8 billion whereas farmers earned $1.678 billion. These insurance companies did not get to this point by freely giving out money to maximize the compensation due to every injury victim.
This is why an attorney is almost always necessary in order to fight for the compensation that you are due including past and future medical bills, past and future wage loss, property damage, and pain and suffering.
