You can negotiate whatever amount you want. As part of the settlement they are very likely going to ask you to sign a confidentiality agreement that keeps you from disclosing any info about the case to anyone. You can and should use that for leverage.

If my lawyer has already sent the opposing council an offer amount to settle, can I recant and ask for more at the arbitration meeting if I don't feel that my lawyers have considered the fact that not only have I lost wages but I have also lost my vehicle which is now on my credit record and the fact that from now until the end of my life I will have to pay someone to do the physical labor jobs on my farm that I have always done for myself.

Yes you can since they did not accept the offer everything is negotiable.
