Can I get another attorney after I get my settlement offer?

Asked over 1 year ago - Richmond, CA

I just got an offer a few days ago, and I'm surprised how little the amount is, I am not satisfied considering the fact that my car was totaled and I was injured for a month, I went to the chiropractor and hospital for a check up and medications. anything I can do?

Additional information

I am receiving a sum of less than a $1,000 my girlfriend received around $500 and I really felt that he took his time and shared little interest in this case.
