It depends on the agreement. Most often, the arbitrator does not know policy limit, demands, offers etc. Also, most arbitration agreements call for parties to split costs. Talk to your lawyer.

Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution method where generally both sides must agree to it. You should have something in writing about the process and means of selecting the mediator. The mediator is chosen after both sides have considered and agrees as to the selection

To add to the chorus:
You really need an attorney to advise you about a serious car injury like the one you describe. The insurer won't just open their wallets and pay you the policy limit -- a good attorney must insist on it, even if a suit must be filed. The good news is that this attorney probably won't cost you up-front; most attorneys in this practice area work on contingency.
Feel free to contact any of the above attorneys or myself.
