What to do if I am offered money to close my claim?

Question Details: I was in an auto accident a little over a year ago which totaled my car the other driver's fault. The accident went through the insurance and I was able to purchase a new vehicle. The claim was never closed and now the insurance company is offering me a lump sum to close the claim. Would I be able to ask for more money in this situation?
