What to do if I was in a car accident almost a year ago and the other driver is at fault but his insurer is only offering me $600 for personal injuries?

I was sitting at a red light, it was raining out, and this man’s breaks stopped working. He was pulling up behind me and since he could not stop, he hit my car going around 40 mph and ripped off my bumper. I suffered from a neck sprain and tingling/numbness to the right side of my body for a little over a month. They paid my hospital bill, for my repairs and rental car. Now they are offering me only $600 dollars for personal injuries and pain and suffering. Is that too low of an amount? How should I persuade them to raise it, if so?
