What does your contact with the lawyer say? You need to review the agreement.

It depends on the amount of your medical bills and liens. If they are high, then they may be eating up most of your settlement. Your attorney agreement dictates the fee, but most lawyers will reduce to help put a little more in the client's pocket.

Depending on your medical bills that could happen. Your lawyer should negotiate your medical bills down to 20 cents on the dollar.

You will need to review the contract that you signed with the attorney when he/she was hired.

Best bet is to not sign the release until the lawyer has negotiated the medical bills down to 5-10 cents on the dollar. The lawyer can't get paid unless release signed.
